NYSPFP Adverse Drug Event/Preventable Readmissions Initiative Web Conference: Medication Reconciliation on Admission and Internal Transfer

Tuesday, November 13, 2012
1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.
This program will provide an overview of improvement strategies for medication reconciliation on admission, including the identification of a patient’s pre-admission prescribed medications and over-the-counter medications; a comparison of pre-admission medications to the medications prescribed on admission; and a reconciliation of medications and resolution of any discrepancies. The value of medication reconciliation on admission will also be described, including going beyond ensuring continuity and clarity to focus resources on targeting high-risk patients, high-risk drugs and high-risk conditions for intervention opportunities.
