Informatisation de la conciliation médicamenteuse : état des lieux des pratiques actuelles et élaboration d'un cahier des charges

Abstract : Medication reconciliation is a mean to reduce medication errors during patients’ transition across healthcare settings. The aim is to provide patient safe care by therapeutic continuity. However, it is a time consuming activity and it implementation may encounter some difficulties, because it needs more healthcare professionals to be effective and because of inadequate tools. Electronic medication reconciliation (eMedRec) has been described as a promising approach to reduce time to create patient’s medication list and ensure their safety. Currently in France, not so much technology systems are developed by software publishers to perform medication reconciliation and despite the interest for eMedRec, they have yet to meet users satisfaction, due to inappropriate functionalities for practice. A questionnaire was sent to hospital pharmacists in order to evaluate the current state of eMedRec in France. This survey also defines eMedRec limits and pharmacists’ expectations regarding an electronic tool to perform medication reconciliation. Based on our results and a literature review, we are able to propose specifications for the successful development of eMedRec tools. These specifications are useful for software publishers in order to develop or improve an eMedRec tool. It can also be useful for hospital pharmacist, in order to improve their hospital information system. When medication reconciliation become a priority in a hospital, it computerization and it integration among the hospital information system is a need despite all the drawbacks. Aware of what this challenge implies, the pharmacist is then in a position in which he can be force of proposition for software publishers.
