Menu 6: Medication Reconciliation

Objective

The EP who receives a patient from another setting of care or provider of care or believes an encounter is relevant should preform medication reconciliation. 

Measure

The EP performs medication reconciliation for more than 50 percent of transitions of care in which the patient is transitioned into the care of the EP

DENOMINATOR: Number of transitions of care during the EHR reporting period for which the EP was the receiving party of the transition.

NUMERATOR: Number of transitions of care in the denominator where medication reconciliation was performed.

The resulting percentage (Numerator ÷ Denominator) must be more than 50 percent in order for an EP to meet this measure. 

Exclusion

An EP who was not the recipient of any transitions of care during the EHR reporting period.
