policy 0300 : Medication Reconciliation

The University of Virginia Medical Center uses medication reconciliation, across the continuum of patient care, to support a safe medication process that documents in the patient's Electronic Medical Record (EMR) the complete and accurate medication history for each patient, as well as allergy information. Medical Reconciliation is done to avoid medication errors such as omissions, duplications, contraindications, unclear information, changes, dosing errors, or drug interactions. Qualified individuals who participate in the medication review and reconciliation process (including but not limitied to, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and certified medical assistants) shall act within the authorized scope of their licenses, certifications, and/or job descriptions in following and implementing this policy.
