Coleman, E. The CTM-3 and CTM-15. The Care Transitions Program. Http://www.caretransitions.org/ctm_main.asp. Accessed 7/9/14. We have created two versions of the CTM®. The CTM-15® is a comprehensive version designed for those programs that focus explicitly on measuring care transitions. Alternatively, the CTM-3® is a more concise measure (and a subset of the CTM-15®) designed for those programs that focus on care transitions either alone or in addition to other aspects of care and can only employ a limited number of items. Both measures have been rigorously developed and have been shown to predict return to the hospital and/or emergency department and discriminate among hospitals known to differ in performance in this area.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Aurora Health Care. http://www.innovations.ahrq.gov/content.aspx?id=1766. Accessed 4/16/13. Community Collaborative Improves Accuracy of Medication Lists for Elderly Patients in Outpatient Clinic Setting. A community-wide medication reconciliation collaborative, involving health care consumers, providers, pharmacists, and community stakeholders, gave elderly patients and their providers the tools and education needed to assemble and verify accurate medication lists and communicate effectively to prevent medication errors. As a result, the rate of accurate medication lists among targeted patients improved from 55 percent to 72 percent. Evidence Rating Moderate: The evidence consists primarily of before and after comparisons of the accuracy of medication lists and comparison with controls, which included Aurora practices in which there was no intervention and post-implementation surveys eliciting patient and provider views. Although the project provided extensive education and support and employed controls, a direct causal link between the program and the improved accuracy rates cannot be confirmed, as confounding variables may have influenced the results, including recent emphasis and education by professional organizations.
