  • Code - The Code is a unique identifier that must be supplied. This is not displayed in the product and is used for identification purposes only.
  • Name - This is the name that will appear for the end users in the EHR application. This should be unique to prevent confusion.
  • Mnemonic - This is not required, but it used as a secondary identifier. This does not appear in the product and unless you have another use for it, the recommendation would be to make this the same as the code.
  • Inactive - The inactive flag allows you to inactivate or hide an entry. If an item is inactivated, users would not have the ability to select the allergen in the future, although any patients with the allergen defined would remain viewable.
  • Enforced - The enforced flag designates whether a dictionary item is required and cannot be changed. In most cases, this comes predefined by Allscripts and should not be selected for new entries. If an entry is enforced, it cannot be modified or inactivated.

Configuration for Interfacing

  • If utilizing an interface, under the Detail 3 section, the default settings configuration should be as follows:
    • Communication Method: The "Communication Method" field in Detail 3 has no function in V11. This field is set to be removed by Allscripts in 11.1.2 (Verified on 09/15/2010).
    • Transmit future orders should be set to "2".
  • These options are configurable based upon your organization's needs.

In v11.2 this section has been renamed to Communication.

In v11.2 this section has been renamed to Notification/Transmittal.
