Inactivating vs. Deleting Medications (Consider Merging Medications Instead)

Instead of inactivating a bunch of medications, give us the option to merge them with existing medications - for example, if a patient spells the name of the drug wrong and it accidentally gets added by our office staff (Levothroxin vs Levothyroxine) - give us the option to merge with the correct medication rather than filling our database with unneeded extras.

    Yes! When someone misspells a medication, we are stuck with keeping that medication in our list. The merging of medications should allow users to keep the alerts associated for select or all patients.
