King’s Daughters boosts medication reconciliation threshold to 77 percent and e-prescribing to 52 percent. King’s Daughters Medical Center in Brookhaven, Mississippi, found it challenging to provide an accurate, verifiable home medication record for its providers to trust as they made important decisions about existing medications both during an inpatient visit and after discharge.While obtaining this information may sound straightforward, the ability to actually do it can be anything but. It often involves patient interviews, communicating with families, calling pharmacies, reviewing records or a combination of these.King’s Daughters now uses external medication history from pharmacy fill data as well as insurance claims data, provided by vendor DrFirst, to complement verification and push the information to the providers. There are many medication management information systems on the market. Other vendors include Allscripts, Cerner, GE Healthcare, Genoa Healthcare, Medication Management Systems, MedMinder, Omnicell, PointClickCare, Surescripts and Talyst.
