Approach to Evaluating Medication Reconciliatio

Approach to Evaluating Medication Reconciliation:

■ Use a standardized policy and structured process and outcome measures to review the hospital’s performance over time on collecting and communicating medication-related information and detecting and reconciling discrepancies and compare the findings to other hospitals;

■ Conduct detailed analyses of adverse drug events when they occur; and

■ Collect qualitative information on medication reconciliation processes from direct observation and interviews with leadership and staff
