An observational study to evaluate the usability and intent to adopt an artificial intelligence–powered medication reconciliation tool.
Long J, Yuan MJ, Poonawala R. Interact J Med Res. 2016;5:e14.
This study describes the development of a tablet-based program that includes artificial intelligence elements for guiding patients through medication reconciliation. The researchers observed 10 patients using the tool and collected survey feedback on its usability and value from a small number of physicians, nurses, and patients.

Nuisance alarms, interruptions, and insufficient staff availability can hinder effective monitoring and response to acute patient deterioration. This news article reports on how hospital logistics centers are working toward utilizing artificial intelligence to improve clinician response to alarms by proactively identifying hospitalized patients at the highest risk for heart failure to trigger emergency response teams when their condition rapidly declines.

The MedSafer Study: a controlled trial of an electronic decision support tool for deprescribing in acute care.
McDonald EG, Wu PE, Rashidi B, et al. J Am Geriatr Soc. 2019 Jun 27; [Epub ahead of print].
This pre–post study compared patients who received medication reconciliation that was usual care at the time of hospital discharge to patients in the intervention arm who had decision support for deprescribing. Although the intervention did lead to more discontinuation of potentially inappropriate medications, there was no difference in adverse drug events between groups. The authors suggest larger studies to elucidate the potential to address medication safety using deprescribing decision support.
