Medication reconciliation and medication regimen reviews can reduce adverse drug events (ADEs) in older adults. This study assessed the impact of a pharmacist-led, patient-centered telemedicine program to manage high-risk medications during transitional and nursing home care. The program included telemedicine-based medication reconciliation at admission and medication regimen reviews throughout the nursing home stay, coupled with clinical decision support. Residents in the program experienced fewer adverse drug events compared to a usual care group. This innovative model has the potential to further reduce medication errors in nursing home residents.
