Establishing an effective medication reconciliation (MR) process for your drug regimen review (DRR) program is crucial to preventing medication errors in your SNF. Effective October 1, 2018, all SNFs will be required to report on the findings of their DRR process as part of the IMPACT Act.
A SNF's Guide to Medication Reconciliation and Drug Regimen Review offers a fresh, educated perspective on the nuances of medication management in long-term care and addresses multiple industry challenges, including antibiotic stewardship requirements, eliminating medication discrepancies during care transitions, and antipsychotic use. This book includes strategies for improving the MR process upon admission, methods for training staff to efficiently manage medications, tools and resources for preventing medication-related adverse events, and regulatory guidance for meeting CMS' new DRR quality measure under the SNF Quality Reporting Program (Drug Regimen Review Conducted with Follow-Up for Identified Issues).
This guide will:

  • Explain how MR and DRR can increase quality of care in facilities
  • Help you implement an effective MR and DRR program, or improve an old one
  • Provide strategies for preventing medication-related adverse events
  • Break down new CMS regulatory language and offer staff training techniques to prepare facilities for these changes
  • Include tools, case studies, and policies and procedures to serve as the ultimate toolkit for staff training
