Abstract

Medication reconciliation
The purpose of medicines reconciliation (MR) is to avoid medication errors through the complete and accurate transfer of information on patients’ medicines during health care sector transitions. We review the rapidly expanding literature on MR showing a need for consensus on taxonomy and research into efficient ways to implement MR. Further, we describe quality improvement initiatives on MR in Denmark and challenge the, in our view, one-sided focus on information technology in MR.
