NYSPFP Adverse Drug Event/Preventable Readmissions Initiative Web Conference: Medication Reconciliation at Discharge

Tuesday, November 20, 2012
1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.
This program will provide an overview of improvement strategies for medication reconciliation at discharge, including reconciling pre-hospital medications with the medications given during the hospitalization as well as medications prescribed for post hospital care. Additionally, NYSPFP will review the importance of identifying and resolving medication discrepancies prior to the patient’s discharge. CMS has stated that 40% or more of preventable readmissions involve medication management highlighting the need for a reliable process.

Further, NYSPFP leadership will provide an update on the Preventable Readmissions Initiative including the introduction of a preventable readmission workbook.
