Patterns and predictors of medication discrepancies in primary care.

Coletti DJ, Stephanou H, Mazzola N, Conigliaro J, Gottridge J, Kane JM. J Eval Clin Pract. 2015 May 29; [Epub ahead of print].

This study found that primary care patients' reports of their current medications differed from electronic health record medication lists, as has been previously documented in post-hospital care. Patients with more medication discrepancies also reported poorer medication adherence, underscoring the importance of effective medication reconciliation in outpatient care.
