To the Editor: In his review of ePocrates qRx Dr Hogan fails to discuss the pharmaceutical industry's
access to ePocrates-assembled data on physician prescribing
behavior.1 While Hogan extols the convenient
AutoUpdate feature, he neglects to mention that personally identifiable usage
data are also uploaded to the ePocrates server during
the same process.
