The master allergy list contains the allergies that can be added to a patient's allergy list (Patient Allergies).
To add to the allergy list or edit an existing allergy:
Allergies are listed alphabetically. To show allergies marked hidden, check the Show Hidden box.
Allergy Type: A value is required in order for the allergy to list on a EHR Continuity of Care Document (CCD)(e.g. Summary of Care).
Allergen: Only one value (UNII or Medication) can be entered, not both.
Is Hidden: Check the box to hide the allergy so it can't be selected for other patients. It will continue to show for patients already using it.
Delete: Remove an allergy. Allergies in a patient's allergy list cannot be deleted.
