AHRQ Releases Medication Reconciliation Toolkit

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a new toolkit to help hospitals improve their medication reconciliation processes to reduce adverse drug events.

The Medications at Transitions and Clinical Handoffs (MATCH) Toolkit provides step-by-step instructions on how to improve a medication reconciliation process, from planning—including how to get leadership support—to pilot testing, implementation, and evaluation. Included is a workbook that helps users implement the Toolkit. The Toolkit is available at: http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/match/.
