New Data Sharing Feature on eHR Viewer

Drug allergic reactions may be effectively avoided by checking patients’ drug allergy and adverse drug reaction (ADR) records. In view of the paramount importance of allergy and ADR records to clinical care and patient safety, an input module in the eHR Viewer for adding and editing such records is being developed and targeted to be launched in the last quarter of 2018. This new feature will enable HCPs of eHRSS, especially doctors in solo practice who are not equipped with local electronic medical record systems for data upload to eHRSS, to share their patients’ relevant records to the system via the eHR Viewer for reference by other healthcare professionals.

More details will be featured in the next issue of eHealth News.
