Practices can designate an Allergy or a Medication as a Medical Alert, so that any use of those labels also generates a Medical Alert for the patient to whom it is applied.
To designate an item as a Medical Alert:
- Select Administration > Clinical > Allergies or Medications. The corresponding list is displayed.
- Select the item you want to flag, and then click the pencil icon to edit. A Medical Alert checkbox is displayed next to the name of the Allergy or Medication.
Note: You can also select the Medical Alert option when adding a new Allergy or Medication.
- Select the checkbox and then click the green check to save. The item is designated as a Medical Alert, and will be displayed in both panels (Allergy or Medication and Medical Alert) whenever it is used for a patient.
