We are thrilled to become the exclusive reseller of ConnectiveRx’s ScriptGuide coupons to break down barriers to medication access and adherence,” said Diane Bartoli, vice president and general manager, epocrates. “Additionally, this partnership will allow epocrates to further develop the close partnerships we have with pharmaceutical companies and media buying agencies through an expanded offering that now includes patient savings on prescription medications with ScriptGuide.” About epocrates Since 1998, epocrates, an athenahealth company, has served essential, clinical content to more than one million physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals.
