Electronic Yellow Card Reporting
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) collects reports of suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) via the Yellow Card Scheme. These provide a source of information on potential drug safety issues allowing the Agency to take regulatory action to protect public health. Currently, healthcare professionals report suspected ADRs by either completing a paper or web based form. Electronic Yellow Card reporting is now integrated in Vision and allows you to:
- Create a populated Yellow Card report directly from the current Add Allergy and Intolerance screen and when inactivating a repeat master where the reason is allergy/intolerance. See Creating a Yellow Card Report.
- Send a completed Yellow Card report to the MHRA web service (see Pre-requisites). You can also preview and print the report.
- View and edit (by deleting and resending) existing Yellow Card reports created in Vision. See Editing an Existing Yellow Card Report.
- View automatically created tasks for unsent Yellow Card reports. See Tasks for Unsent Yellow Card Reports.
When a report is created, it is automatically populated with the information on the Allergy and Intolerance form along with relevant patient and practice information where available.
Once complete, the Yellow Card information is saved on the patient record and a report is sent via the Vision Message Bus to the MHRA website.
Please see the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) Website for further background information on the Yellow Card Scheme.
