What is Medication Reconciliation? • In acute care… • Creating the list of medications your patient is on at home. • Accounting for each home medication when the patient enters the episode of care. • Communicating the discharge medication list and why there are changes from the home medication list.
Medico-legal Precedents *2013 CMPA educational publication
Why is this not being done on SCM or Netcare? • Current SCM cannot create a functional home medication list…. yet. • The pharmacy uploads to Netcare are NOT proper medication lists (and never will be). They reflect medications dispensed, not medications taken – this can only obtained though history. • Med Rec can get on Netcare using your discharge summary.

Discharge – 3 Ways to do a Summary • SCM discharge summary – compare current meds to the home med list (BPMH), and type the reasons for changes into the white box below the med list. • Dictated discharge summary – same as above, but after dictating the meds for discharge, dictate the reasons for changes from the home med list. • Handwritten – Do Med Rec on the Form. In your discharge order, request the form be photocopied and faxed to the family doctor.

What about patient or community pharmacist involvement? Patients: • A resource developed by the HQCA is available in print, and on the AHS website. Pharmacists: • There is a fee code for doing a patient interview and creating a medication list. Currently it requires a phone call to the pharmacist to obtain this list, if it is done.
