Drug Allergy Module™

Identifying drugs that cause significant allergic reactions.

The Drug Allergy Module enhances the ability of clinicians to identify and consolidate information about drugs known to cause significant allergic reactions, cross-sensitivities, and drug intolerances by identifying and helping to avert drug-allergy issues. Drug-allergy screenings also look at certain inactive medication ingredients such as latex and peanuts. A specially developed Allergen Pick List streamlines workflow by giving the user a convenient way to quickly and easily record a patient’s allergy, enabling fast and convenient allergy profiling.

FDB Drug Allergy Module Advantages:

  • Helps to identify drugs known to cause clinically significant allergic reactions.
  • Provides alerts to cross-sensitivities among related drugs that patients are allergic to, helping to prevent reactions to drugs with similar compounds, and documents drug intolerances, such as those causing patient complaints of nausea when taking codeine. These distinctions can help distinguish a true allergy from minor adverse effects, guiding risk-to-benefit assessments when prescribing.
  • Presents a pre-defined pick list that makes patient allergy profiling faster and convenient.
  • Enables screening for inactive medication ingredients—such as latex, peanuts and dyes—that can cause hypersensitivity reactions.
  • Simplifies change management via a well-defined methodology for retiring and replacing drug and allergy concepts.
  • Defines true allergy groups and doesn't use therapeutic classes or other existing categories that have been repurposed.
