Reducing errors through discharge medication reconciliation by pharmacy services.

Bishop MA, Cohen BA, Billings LK, Thomas EV. Am J Health Syst Pharm. 2015;72(17 suppl 2):S120-S126.

In this observational study at a large academic medical center, pharmacists found medication discrepancies in 41% of patients discharged by the hospitalist service. The authors advocate for involving pharmacists in discharge medication reconciliation to avoid adverse drug events, though this strategy has previously yielded mixed results.
