Drug Allergy Interactions

September 10, 2019

Access to accurate, up-to-date drug allergy information is a vital component to effective, safe, and timely patient care. This information comes directly from patients and from information contained in the electronic health record. Recommendations available to improve drug-allergy information to prevent adverse events have not been widely implemented. The safe practice recommendations are available from the Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety; additional information is available from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices.

In this special episode produced in conjunction with the Partnership, we look at how technology and clinical decision support could improve how drug and allergy information is handled.
