These dot-smartphrases were developed to be used in an EHR system like `Epic`. This list provides a quick and easy way to give patients who are either interested or already take over the counter herbal medication some basic guidance and cautions.
List of herbs chosen is based on what the National Institute for Complementary and Integrative Medicine (NIH) currently provides information about on their web site:
The information contained is to the best of our knowledge what is currently known about these herbs in terms of their reported medical value and side effect profile (May 2017). Periodic review and revision of this list is recommended.
We would like to thank Parkland Health & Hospital System for their technical support in getting these uploaded to their system smart phrase library for system wide use.#ResourcetoShare #tools #2017
