Epocrates Bugs + Drugs is a free antimicrobial susceptibility reference that provides geolocated bacterial resistance data to support clinical decision-making at the point of care. Historically, this information is gathered from hospital in-patient data. This app goes beyond the hospital setting and help clinicians identify superbugs in areas their patients live by incorporating lab data from over 15 million patient records sourced from athenahealth¹s cloud-based EHR.
· List of bacteria observed in urine, blood, and skin for geolocated communities across the country
· Antibiotic drug options organized by organism susceptibility
· Epocrates dosing and contraindication content with link to the complete monograph

shows what others have been sensitive to.
Be careful with data. By background, im an id physician. This app is an interesting idea with the potential to be very useful. But there is no
organization of bacterial pathogens into gram positive or negative. More import
Goodbye Sanford Guide. Sanford Guide app 29.99, this free! Nice work Epocrates! One star off for not being able to search for specific bug instead of
having to scroll through the list, and no data for Vibrio or Plasmodium s
Excellent Resource. See antibiotic resistance in your area.
Simple. Awesome.. This app does one thing, and it does it amazingly well. If you are anyone who prescribes antibiotics on a regular basis (or
non-regular basis), check it out!
