This CCHL lunch and learn session will explore quality improvement in medication reconciliation (MedRec) with specific focus on the Better COordinated CrOss Sectoral MedRec (BOOMR) project initiated by Medical Pharmacies. MedRec is used during transitions of care to prevent medication incidents and is an Accreditation Canada required organizational practice.

The BOOMR project set out to examine how best practice in medication reviews can avoid medication incidents keeping residents out of hospital and at home. The results of the BOOMR project will be discussed, including how the project reduced hospital transfers, created workplace efficiencies, improved inter-professional communication, reduced polypharmacy, and improved patient engagement and staff satisfaction.

For healthcare leaders this presentation will provide insights into leading quality improvement, particularly how quality MedRec drives safe transitions across sectors. When service providers coordinate care transitions simultaneously, they can improve and drive patient/client outcomes.
