Inputting Allergy and Adverse Drug Reaction Records via eHR Viewer

 
new function has been rolled out on 23 October 2018

In the previous issue of eHealth News, we reported in brief that an input module would be launched for healthcare providers (HCPs) to add and edit patients’ drug allergy and adverse drug reaction (ADR) records in the Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS). We are pleased to inform readers that the new function has been rolled out on 23 October 2018. In this issue, we will show you exactly how it works.

HCProfs can share patients' allergy & ADR records to eHRSS via the eHR Viewer

The input module enables healthcare professionals (HCProfs), including medical practitioners, registered or enrolled nurses and registered dentists of eHRSS HCPs, to document their patients’ allergy and ADR records to eHRSS via the eHR Viewer. The function aims to enhance medication safety by encouraging HCPs’ sharing of patients’ allergy and ADR records via eHRSS.

All HCPs are given access to the Allergy and ADR input module (except those that are already uploading allergy and ADR records to eHRSS, or those that are technically ready to do so). Access to the module will be granted to eligible HCPs by default. Prior enrollment or set up is not required.

HCProfs who have joined Public-Private Partnership (PPP) programmes of the Hospital Authority and the Department of Health can also access the module via the respective PPP applications.
