MedRec Inpatient Overview:

The MedRec Inpatient solution simplifies and improves medication reconciliation at admission and discharge, helping to minimize dangerous medication errors. The solution helps to drive better communication, safer care transitions, standardized documentation and improves provider satisfaction. 

Traditional CPRS is not well organized to perform medication reconciliation, requiring the provider to compare medications in multiple tabs or systems. The MedRec solution consolidates inpatient, outpatient, remote and non-VA medications into a single master list which is grouped alphabetically by indication. This enables practitioners to compare similar meds side by side, reducing the potential for error. 

The solution may be utilized by itself for medication reconciliation purposes, or combined with the Navigator, Dash Board and TurboNote solutions for further benefits.
