When selected on All you will see all active and inactive allergies. Also when selected on All, you are able to reorder the allergies as desired by clicking and dragging.

Allergies, or a status of No Active Allergies, may also be entered into the patients record via EMR, EHR, or iEHR. This table will update dynamically with the information entered. 
Allergy information will pull forward into many places in MacPractice such as Rx and ePrescribe, EMR and EHR, and printed forms and notes. It will also display in the patient selector as a yellow alert triangle and pop up when the patient's record is selected; though these features may be restricted by user privileges or preferences. 
Coding Preferences allow offices to select which set of allergies are used. Once the data is entered into patient records, reports like the Patient Clinical may be filtered using this information.
