NewCrop eRx Allergies

NewCrop eRx users can add allergies to a patient's profile in order to get drug-allergy interaction alerts when prescribing drugs.

In the NewCrop eRx / Prescription interface, under Pending Rx, is an Allergies area.

NewCrop eRx uses the allergies entered here when checking for Drug-Allergy Interaction Checks. Allergies entered in Open Dental are not passed to NewCrop eRx. Users must manually enter them.

To add an allergy:

  1. Click Add in the Allergies section of the Compose Rx tab.
  2. Enter all or part of the allergy (brand, ingredient, or drug category such as NSAID) and click Allergy Search.. Alternatively, click Common Allergies to choose from a list of common allergies.
  3. Select the allergy from the search results and enter allergy details.
  4. Click Save Allergy. It will be added to the list.

Alternatively, allergies can also be viewed and added from the Problems tab in the NewCrop eRx window.
