Mayo Clinic researchers developed a medication reconciliation (MR) intervention program for outpatient primary care settings that improved the accuracy of medication lists in the practice’s electronic medical records (EMRs) relative to patient reports of actual prescription and nonprescription drugs and supplements used. The intervention included communicating with patients so that they were better prepared to provide information about their medications at the time of the visit, as well as provider education on the importance of MR and methods to improve documentation through patient-provider collaboration. The intervention significantly reduced the frequency of instances when a medication list was completely absent from the medical record (from 26 percent to 6 percent) and the prevalence of medication discrepancies, which fell by more than 50 percent.
