Improve ADR documentation

We are planning to improve ADR documentation on the patient electronic medical record.

Currently on our practice ADR is being documented under the Allergy section. (we are using Cerner)

I want to know how do you document ADR on your practice?
Is there a specific section for it? (Other than the allergy)
And Who’s responsible to document ADR?

I’ll appreciate if you can share a screenshot of your ( ADR Alert) window.
