Epocrates is coming to Windows Phone. That's what we've just learned from the official Epocrates Twitter account. As you probably know, Epocrates is one of the most popular names in software for the healthcare field. Physicians, nurses, and others in the medical industry use various apps from the company to quickly look up drug interactions, drug information, diagnostic information and more.

Here's what Epocrates (www.epocrates.com) said when asked on Twitter if they had any plans to make a Windows Phone app:

"We promise you that we're working on it! Thanks for reaching out."

The medical apps category is one area that Windows Phone and Windows 8 could use a little more work. Securing Epocrates on the platform could help signal to other key healthcare companies that it's time to develop mobile apps for Windows.

Anyone in the medical field looking forward to Epocrates hit the platform?
