If you are one of thousands of Texas physicians who use the Epocrates® Rx free drug guide on your mobile device, you now can upgrade to a one- or two-year premium-level subscription at a discount. If you already subscribe to one of Epocrates' drug, disease, and diagnostic references, and want to upgrade – or plan to continue at your current level – you can do that at a discount, too.

TMA has partnered with Epocrates to offer TMA members a 20-percent discount on premium-level subscriptions to Epocrates point-of-care references for smartphones, other mobile devices, and the web. 

More than 19,000 Texas physicians and almost one of every two U.S. physicians use some version of these TMA-endorsed products. Never used an Epocrates reference? Try out the free version. You'll get drug monographs, including information on hundreds of brand name over-the-counter products; health plan formularies; a drug interaction checker; pill identification with pictures; and content updates and medical news.

Upgrade options offer two or more of the following: information on alternative and complementary medicines; an infectious disease treatment guide; disease monographs with images; information on hundreds of tests and panels to help with lab preparation, interpretation, and follow-up; ICD-9 and CPT codes; clinical tables and guidelines, patient education handouts, and a medical dictionary.

For pricing and to subscribe or upgrade, visit the TMA website.
