An accurate computable representation of food and drug allergy is essential for safe healthcare. We developed and evaluate a SQL-based method to map free-text allergy/adverse reaction entries to structured entries, using RxNorm as the target vocabulary.  The system was developed and tested using a perioperative management system using a training set of 24,599 entries and a test set of 24,857 entries from Vanderbilt University.
