DocCharge provides a return on investment by reducing lost charges and increasing one’s accuracy in coding. Imagine having instantaneous access to your patient list, coding with accuracy enhancement, and real time transmittance to your billing staff. All while being HIPAA compliant. No need to find the time later in your day to write down procedures and diagnostic codes. No need to relay that information manually.

Epocrates is the #1 medical reference app, used by several million physicians, pharmacists, nurses and med students. It’s a “free” app that lets you look up information on drug dosing, interactions and contraindications, and much more at the cost of being bombarded by marketing by pharmaceutical companies pushing their wares. Its convenience is immense when being with a patient and checking a medication. Despite its windfall, the wealth of information cannot be passed up on. Epocrates is far larger and more comprehensive than its main competitors and best of all, it’s “free”.
MDCalc known by medical students everywhere not by name, but by website design, is a source for medical equations, scores and algorithms for use in the practice of evidence based medicine. It is a clinical decision application that helps providers learn and apply decisions in specific care situations. Instantaneous access to information such as Creatinine Clearance as per the Cockcroft-Gault equation, HEART score for major cardiac events to Child-Pugh Scores to estimate cirrhosis severity. Always needed and readily accessible, there is something here for every specialty.
