Pharmacy-related Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services quality measures for medication reconciliation and drug regimen review are important in addressing medication-related problems (MRPs) that result in patient harm and increased health services utilization and costs, including ED visits, rehospitalizations, and mortality. This session explores the value of pharmacist-provided medication reconciliation during transitions of care. The speakers will share the impact pharmacists have on resolving MRPs, streamlining individualized care, reducing rehospitalization rates, and decreasing total cost of care.
