Pharmacist-led medication reconciliation after hospital discharge has been found to reduce medication discrepancies, but its effect on subsequent healthcare utilization is not clear.In this evidence synthesis, the authors explored the reasons why pharmacist-led medication reconciliation after hospital discharge succeeds or fails. The authors found that medication reconciliation resulting in beneficial outcomes was performed in accordance with patient preferences, promoted coordination and collaboration between healthcare professionals, and established trust between patients and providers.
