Clinical Excellence Commission Our projects/opportunities/challenges: • Medicines form the mainstay of most clinical care and are critical in chronic diseases. • Electronic systems are used to manage care in the community and in hospital but these systems seldom talk to each other. • As patients transfer in and out of the hospital system, there are opportunities for discontinuity - >40% of medication errors happen at transitions of care. • Discontinuity causes considerable morbidity and mortality – patients discontinuing medicines following hospitalisation have 10% increased 12 month mortality.
