Medication Reconciliation Update

Friday, September 12, 2008 at 9:34:22 AM

A new automated process for medication reconciliation is being developed to eliminate multiple lists and to improve legibility. Nursing will begin by entering home medications into the computer for a printed list to give the provider at admission. In-house medications will be added and an update printed at discharge for the practitioner to make notations. The patient will then be given a final printed user-friendly list to take home. Over 4000 medications have been entered into the database to save entry time and will be updated going forward. A team including physicians is finalizing the format for the medication report.
