E-RX Drug Allergies

Discussion created by nvsa on Jul 17, 2017

We had an incident where the drug allergy was entered and also shows up in the alert screen.  Unfortunately, one of our assistants clicked on the drug.  When my doctor authorized it under the  e-Prescription Authorization function, there was no pop up to let him know that this patient is allergic to the medication and was sent to the pharmacy.  Can a pop-up or an alert screen be added to the e-Prescription Authorization function so when the doctors authorize the prescriptions, they are made aware one last time of the allergies?  I believe this is vital and crucial to patient safety.  erx winoms cloud e-prescription
