Vancouver Coastal Health – Providence Health Care spans a wide range of facilities – from a rural, 25-bed facility to major research and referral centers that see over 200 patients each day. While each facility has its own unique needs and challenges, they all share one thing – a commitment to ensuring patients receive the best care possible.
As part of this commitment, the organization made medication reconciliation a priority, creating a standardized Medication Reconciliation order form for its four Communities of Care. When printed, the form can be pre-populated with patients’ medication information retrieved from PharmaNet, the province’s database of all dispensed prescriptions – helping to ensure clinicians have the most accurate medication information possible. Despite the change, the new process has been embraced by staff across the continuum of care, resulting in improved patient safety and quality of care throughout the organization.
