Athenahealth, an electronic health record and billing company, recently announced the purchase of the medical app developers, Epocrates Inc. Epocrates has developed many healthcare based applications, most of which have made a lasting impression on doctors.
With the acquisition of Epocrates, Athenahealth said it believes it will be able to better serve an expanded network of providers. Athenahealth added that it plans to build upon Epocrates’ efforts in transforming the way doctors access and engage with clinical information, with one another, and with their patients. The focus of Epocrates apps are to improve patient care, what type of developments would you like to see?
Technological advances in healthcare have helped both Physicians and Patients, with everything from education, drug references, and patient efficiencies, but they're not the only ones who can gain from these developments. So who else can benefit from these types of expansions?
