Today, I have learned that Epocrates will be filing an IPO, with the expected symbol: EPOC, presumably on the NASDAQ. I only hope that my concerns about privacy will be heeded and that EPOC will not hold all of the names/members in its database as pawns to be sold to the nearest advertiser. That is my new fear. I have concerns about companies trying to make earnings reports each quarter and what they will do to make it happen.
Hopefully, growth will come from organic growth of membership and subscriptions and not from nefarious selling of names and prescribing practices.
