Medicines reconciliation is a key process to improve health, welfare and patient security. It is also recognized that semantically interoperable systems based on the use of health standards is an adequate strategy to achieve a reliable medicines conciliation process. This paper describes a solution developed for medicines reconciliation at the Hospital de Fuenlabrada in Madrid. It is based on the use of a CEN/ISO 13606 based patient summary that is shared between primary care and the hospital center. The 13606 norm and archetypes were used to achieve the semantic interoperability of the clinical information together with SNOMED CT and the Spanish National Medication Database. This approach has showed that it is feasible to achieve a patient security improvement in an innovative and collaborative way.
