Abstract

This article describes the medication reconciliation process applied on hospital discharge of patients to home with home care services within Seton Health System, an integrated health delivery network located in Troy, New York. The project, which was not research based, was characterized by an intensive pharmacotherapeutic medication reconciliation at hospital discharge by the hospital-based pharmacist with continued pharmacist support available to home healthcare nurses collaboratively at the time of start of care and resumption of care. The goal of this process was to identify and resolve medication-related problems and reduce hospital readmissions.
