EMR & EDR Element - Allergies

Allergies within the Allergies Element can be sorted with the Active or All toggle. Select Active to display only those Allergies with the Active checkbox enabled. Select All to display all medication records in the box, regardless of whether the Active checkbox is enabled or disabled.
If the patient does not have any allergies, select the No Allergies checkbox. If there are no changes to the patient's allergies list, select the No Changes checkbox to add the information as it appears to the patient narrative.
Within the Patient Form, click the small plus button to add a new allergy record for the patient. In the resulting popover, search for and select the allergy.
If the patient's allergy is currently active, enable the Active checkbox. Next, add the allergy attributes, such as the severity, Identified Date, Onset Date, Allergy Type, and any additional notes. You may search for and select a reaction by clicking the magnifying glass icon within the Reactions field. Click the Done button to add the new Allergy record.
Allergy Reconciliation 
The Allergies Element can be used to perform an Allergy Reconciliation. Click the Reconcile menu and select the Add New List for Reconciliation menu item.
In the resulting window, select the radio button to add a new list of allergies from the Patient or Referral. Where Referral is selected, set the Referral Source menu to None, an Existing Referral, or select to Add New Referral Record.
If Add New Referral is selected, select the Referrer from the list within References > Referrer, or click the plus button to add a new Referrer.
With the list source selected, click the plus button to search for and select the allergy and complete the allergy attributes as usual (See Allergies for instructions.) Once finished, click the Next button.
The resulting window displays the entire medication list for the patient. The icons denote which medications were already on file for the patient and which medications were added during the current reconciliation. Disable the checkbox for any medication to set it as Inactive. Enable only the medications to keep on the patient's record, then click the Next button.
As a final review, confirm the medication reconciliation list in the resulting window. Click the Next button to dismiss the Medication Reconciliation window.
