Updated Toolkit is the Go-to Resource for Electronic Medication Reconciliation Implementation
Posted on July 11, 2017 by Seema Nayani
We all know the importance of medication reconciliation, so why is there a significant lack of wide spread implementation of a formalized process throughout all care transitions such as admission, transfer or discharge? Medication reconciliation (MedRec) is the effective communication of a patient’s medication information across transition points in the health care system. MedRec, as many of us working in this space understand, is quite complex and actually implementing this process is challenging. With the increasing complexity of patients’ medication regimens and the multitude of information sources that need to be considered, it is no wonder that organizations aspiring for fully integrated MedRec are looking to electronic MedRec (eMedRec) solutions.
