[Gnumed-devel] EMR tree display of allergy

Presently, the EMR tree will display allergies under the health issue "allergies/intolerances", with each trigger occupying the "episode" position, but only when an allergy or intolerance exists.

If the allergy status is unknown, or if you understand the patient to have no allergies, this does not show.

Would anyone have objection to the routine inclusion in the EMR tree of the allergies/intolerances as:

        "allergies/intolerances: unknown"

or      "allergies/intolerances: none"

or, when one or more exist,

        "allergies/intolerances: as listed"

A possible side-benefit would be when working in the Progress note creator (I have been calling it "creator" since it does not yet edit an already-saved note), if in the course of a visit it is being thought about to prescribe a medication or other drug (or give a vaccination like influenza where there could exist egg allergy) the clinician could always look at the upper left corner of the Active Problems list to see

        "allergies/intolerances: unknown"
        "allergies/intolerances: none"

instead of (maybe)


        (if any had been previously entered)
