Abstract

The transitions across different health care settings, in particular home and hospital, may be critical regarding the continuity of patient’s medication. Some of the medication discrepancies occurring during these transitions can potentially be harmful to patient’s health and therefore lead to increased use of healthcare resources and increased costs. The goal of SEAMPAT is to define, implement and evaluate an ICT-based medication reconciliation (MedRec) process in which the patient is actively involved in providing information about his/her current medications. MedRec is the formal and collaborative process of obtaining and verifying a complete and accurate list of patient’s current medications.
