Medicines Reconciliation and Transcribing for Supply
Medicines Reconciliation is the process of creating the most accurate list possible of all medicines a patient is taking including drug name, dosage, frequency, and route. This list is then compared against the prescriber’s admission, transfer, and/or discharge orders, with the goal of providing correct medicines to the patient at all transition points within the healthcare setting.
Transcribing for Supply is the ordering of medicines/products for individual patients. Medicines Reconciliation and Transcribing for Supply can effectively contribute to the wider Medicines Optimisation agenda ultimately support patients making the most of their medicines.
