Greater pharmacist involvement in care transitions could curb the many medication discrepancies that arise throughout the process.
In a recent case study, 17 patients at high risk for medication mishaps during transitions of care from inpatient to outpatient settings were called soon after discharge and asked to provide information on all medications they were taking.
The resultant patient-reported medication lists were compared with the patients’ discharge summaries, and any medication discrepancies discovered were categorized as patient- or system-level factors.
