Online Ingenuity

A CA-based company by the name of Epocrates has utilized a little online ingenuity that will most likely save lives, make healthcare workers' lives easier and ensure that they have more time to focus on their patients.

What do I mean? Well ... according to healthcare professionals, before the inception of Epocrates online, if they had to look up the dosing, pricing or possible interactions of a drug like Prevacid, it would take them at least 30 more minutes than it does now. When you multiply that by just four patients that's two hours lost per day or more.

One can't help but think that it's that cutting edge kind of vision that has helped Epocrates earn a vote of 257/500 fastest growing private companies today.
