SUMMARY

Medication discrepancies, i.e., unintentional differences in medication regimens across different sites of care, are common and can lead to patient harm. Medication reconciliation is a method for reducing these discrepancies. Currently, hospitals and health systems do not have adequate tools to help them improve their medication reconciliation processes. This activity will inform learners about a multicentered study designed to improve medication reconciliation processes, including components of a quality improvement toolkit, quantitative results of the study, lessons learned for successful implementation, and implications and next steps for hospitals, health systems, and national patient safety leaders who wish to improve medication safety during transitions of care.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Identify the components of the MARQUIS toolkit
  2. Discuss the effects of a mentored quality improvement intervention on medication reconciliation errors
  3. Discuss barriers of implementation of the toolkit
  4. Discuss the broader implication in terms of Electronic Health Record design, policy, regulation, and professional education
