The development of indicators for monitoring medication use is described. An interdisciplinary core group constructed a medication-use flow chart depicting prescribing, dispensing, administering, and monitoring patient response; systems management/control was recognized as a fifth component. Sixteen processes were identified for which indicators were developed. Proposed indicators are now being tested in a small number of hospitals. The indicator data will enable institutions to identify areas for improvement.

The Joint Commission is based in the Chicago suburb of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois.

Co published with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) The Medication Reconciliation Handbook is an invaluable tool for health care organizations seeking to implement an effective medication reconciliation process. Medication errors commonly occur at points of transition in care, such as at admission, during transfer from one department to another, or at discharge. A medication reconciliation process can help your organization decrease the incidents of medication errors at these points. Numerous case studies describe successes in forming a team to incorporate medication reconciliation in their processes. The Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goal on medication reconciliation is also discussed. Supported by an unrestricted educational grant provided by McKesson Corporation.
