1. Adding Allergies
To add a patient’s allergies, begin by going to their eChart. In the left panel, scroll down to ‘Allergies’ section and select the ‘+’.
This will open a new window displaying all the existing allergies. At the bottom of this list, there is a search bar where you can search and input a new allergy.
💡 There are some common shortcut allergies displayed above the search bar that can be added easily.💡
Search for an allergy in the search bar. Pressing enter will display all allergies matching your search. You can either select one of the recommended allergies or if nothing matches exactly what you are looking for, make a custom allergy by pressing the ‘Custom Allergy’ button.
Once selected, fill out the information fields pertaining to the allergy. When finished, select ‘Add Allergy’. The allergy you've added will now appear on both the patient's eChart and the allergies page:
Allergy Page View
💡 Attempting to prescribe a medication that contains something the patient is allergic to will now trigger a warning indicating a possible reaction.💡
2. Modifying Allergies
To modify an allergy, go to the patient’s eChart and select the 'Allergy' section in the left panel. This will open the window displaying all the existing allergies. To the right of each allergy are the button ‘Inactivate’ and ‘Modify’.
💡 Inactivating will remove the allergy from the patient's allergy list. Modify will open up the allergy information fields previously filled in. Any of the info can be changed from this window. Update by selecting ‘Add Allergy’ when finished.💡
