New Epocrates Bugs + Drugs mobile app

Download the new Epocrates Bugs + Drugs to find out. This free app is an antimicrobial susceptibility reference that provides geolocated bacterial resistance data to support your clinical decision-making at the point of care. Bugs + Drugs helps clinicians identify superbugs in areas their patients live because it incorporates lab data from more than 15 million patient records sourced from athenahealth's cloud-based EHR.

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
Quickly find bacteria observed in your area 

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.
