The CDC recently reported that every year more than 2 million people in the U.S. contract infections that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die as a result. Epocrates and athenahealth understand the growing superbug threat and developed Bugs + Drugs to equip clinicians with the information they need to:
- Identify superbugs in the area their patients live
- Select an antibiotic based on bacterial susceptibility
- Prescribe with confidence using content from the Epocrates Rx® application
One-tap access to a visual listing of bacteria observed in your location, whenever you need it. For added specificity, filter your listing by specimen type (i.e., urine, blood, skin) or change your location to a specific zip code.
