Healthcare Coalition Approves Tools to Improve Patient Safety During Transitions of Care
Date:4/17/2008

performances in transitions of care and identify areas for improvement. These areas include such things as improving how medication changes are reconciled when patients move from a nursing home to a hospital, through the hospital, and through the discharge process." The materials include an educational component about transitions of care, an implementation case study and evaluation methodology.

The released tools address several important areas that impact effective and safe transitions including:

-- Personal Patient "My Medicine List" Essential Data Elements: This is a

list of medications to be carried at all times by every patient. The

data elements indicate the prescriptions that patients have been

prescribed and are currently taking along with information about their

over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and nutritional supplements.

The goal of the personal medicine list is to help patients improve

their understanding of their current medicine regimens and assist

healthcare providers in ensuring safe transference of medication

information.

-- Medication Reconciliation Essential Data Specifications: These

consensus elements will help healthcare professionals collect, transmit

and receive critical medication information needed when patients move

from one practice setting or level of care to another. The use of

these elements in the reconciliation process required by the Joint

Commission could help reduce medication errors.

-- Elements of Excellence Transitions of Care Checklist: This list

provides a detailed description of effective patient transfer between

practice settings. This process can help to ensure that patients and

their critical medical information are transferred safely, timely, and

efficiently.
