Our MA’s (at Axis) were initially tasked with reconciling medications, however, shortly after starting they were running into complex scenarios and therefore, we reassigned the task to providers and nurses.
Another comment I wanted to make on a separate/relative topic is that we did not reconcile medications that were inactive (this is only relevant if you plan to do the same). With our HealthPAC deadline coming up, this has created a challenge for our QI team because our report identifies patients who had a positive Hepatitis C result, but is unable to identify those same patients who completed medication treatment in the past (many of which whose respective medication is inactive).
If your list of patients with positive Hep-C results is low, then we can suggest what we are planning to do to avoid this gap in reporting. However, if you do have a long list of patients with positive results AND completed treatment/has inactive medication in NextGen, then you may want to consider a solution for this.
Hope this helps,
