No Strings Attached: Utilizing No-Code Tools to Improve Medication Reconciliation Skills Development, Clinical Workflow, and Patient Outcomes
In the United States, thousands of deaths occur annually related to medication errors. In addition, medication errors can cause physiological, psychological, and financial harm. However, medication errors can be prevented with the right resources and processes. One way to stop medication errors is by implementing a medication reconciliation process. This project aims to support medication reconciliation skills development, improve clinical workflow and patient outcomes. This project will explore a healthcare facility’s medication reconciliation process and utilize the systems development life cycle (SDLC) model; Analysis, Design, Implementation, Testing, Evaluation, interact design principles, and no-code application tools to recommend system changes. Application usability, clinician satisfaction, and improved care continuity will be targets of successful implementation.
