medication reconciliation or "med rec" programs
You'll hear more about the role pharmacy technicians play in medication reconciliation or "med rec" programs.
Med rec is often thought of as a hospital matter, but it is evolving to include community pharmacists and technicians too.
This practice involves "reconciling" a patient's meds each time there is a transition of care. For example, when a patient goes into the hospital...or when a patient goes from an inpatient to an outpatient.
