International Journal of Health Management Review <p>The <strong>International Journal of Health Management Review - IJHMReview</strong> arose from an in-depth reflection regarding the challenges for the management of healthcare systems both in Brazil and globally, since resources for healthcare are becoming increasingly scarce, which poses a challenge for both public and private sectors.</p> <p>The Journal was created as a non-profit entity by the Brazilian Institute for Training, Development and Professional Management, a private sector organization, the activities of which focus primarily on teaching, research, development, and projects that involve the management of professional and academic education in the many fields of healthcare and administration.</p> <p>To achieve its objectives, the Brazilian Institute for Training, Development and Professional Management has at its disposal a team of highly qualified professionals with extensive experience in the fields of teaching and research, as well as an organizational structure suitable for: </p> <ul> <li>supporting the dissemination of knowledge in economics and related fields by means of technical publications, periodicals, essays, the Internet and other communications media;</li> </ul> <ul> <li>collaborating with public and private sector institutions, both national and foreign, whether academic or otherwise, in the creation, management, and evaluation of programs in the field of healthcare management;</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Promoting courses, symposiums, seminars, conferences, and studies that foster education and debate regarding healthcare systems, promoting the improvement of professionals, whether in the public or private sector, in partnership with a broad range of healthcare and educational institutions.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Conducting research required by the public and private sectors, pursuant to the highest academic standards, which simultaneously enable the production of knowledge and the training of specialized personnel. </li> </ul> <p>The changes that occur in the political, social, cultural, environmental, technological and economic environments in various countries around the world are reflected in the way resources are managed, whether in the healthcare sector or in other sectors, all of which require practical, clear, and objective solutions which can be applied to the daily operations of the administrators which manage these different systems. </p> <p>In this context, <strong>I</strong><strong>JHMReview</strong> seeks to contribute with research on these practical issues, providing knowledge and scientific understanding regarding how to improve healthcare management, increase the quality of the care, optimize the use of healthcare resources and, consequently, improve the quality of life of the citizens. Thus, the topics of interest are: </p> <ul> <li>Healthcare Management in the daily operations of the hospital administrator: strategic, tactical and operational aspects thereof;</li> <li>Formal and informal organization of healthcare services: leadership, negotiation, communication, culture;</li> <li>Challenges, trends and strategic aspects of the management of healthcare systems;</li> <li>Quality management in healthcare services;</li> <li>Cost management in healthcare services;</li> <li>Aspects and trends of Public Health Policies, Women's Health, Men’s Health, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Epidemiological and Public Health Surveillance, among others;</li> <li>Entrepreneurship and innovation in the healthcare sector;</li> <li>Technology management in the healthcare sector;</li> <li>Operational management in the healthcare sector;</li> <li>Knowledge management in the healthcare sector;</li> <li>Sustainability in the healthcare sector;</li> <li>Crisis Management in healthcare systems;</li> <li>Operational logistics in the healthcare sector; </li> </ul> <p>As a scientific publication, <strong>I</strong><strong>JHMReview</strong> prioritizes scientific research, both empirical and theoretical, as well as technical reports (practical/technical in nature) of actual cases occurring in healthcare services and systems. </p> <p><strong>IJHMReview</strong> will publish articles in Portuguese, English, and Spanish. </p> <p>Articles will be submitted only via this website, and will be evaluated by peers using the blind review system.</p> JHMReview en-US International Journal of Health Management Review 2526-1606 <p>Authors who publish in this journal agree to the following terms: The author(s) authorize the publication of the text in the journal; The author(s) guarantee that the contribution is original and unpublished and is not in the process of being evaluated by any other journal(s); The journal is not responsible for the opinions, ideas, and concepts contained in the texts, as these are the sole responsibility of their respective author(s); The editors reserve the right to make adjustments to the text in order to ensure that it adheres to the standards of the journal.

This article aims to identify which medication reconciliation methods are used in hospitals through an integrative review. The results revealed that, out of 12 articles, only 10 cite the use of electronic tool methods, such as electronic medical records, applications, electronic medical records, multimedia software, and toolkit. Electronic tool methods are widely embedded and employed in medication reconciliation in a variety of ways. In conclusion, we highlight that, although electronic methodologies are widely inserted and disseminated as solutions for medication reconciliation, it is unusual. Ideally, a combination of different MRI methods should be combined, according to the reality of each institution, such as a targeted interview with the patient or caregiver, associated with electronic methods to obtain better quality medication reconciliation with better results.</p> Douglas Nunes Vieira Márcia Mello Costa De Liberal Copyright (c) 2023 2023-07-10 2023-07-10 9 e0329 e0329 10.37497/ijhmreview.v9i00.329 Increased Validation of Medical Prescriptions by Pharmaceutical Retail Leadership: a case report <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Make the process of accessing and validating digitally signed medical prescriptions more agile, as each platform has its particularity, bringing great difficulty in access, expertise, and agility in handling systems for Pharmacies.</p> <p><strong>Method:</strong> The information technology area of ​​the pharmaceutical retail company studied in this article centralized the main electronic addresses on a single web page. The assimilation of digital signature validation training was optimized, allowing counter attendants and/or pharmacists to have greater dexterity in validating signatures. The innovation allowed an analysis of the time spent on the procedure before and after inserting the tool.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The centralization of the access links of the various electronic prescription platforms used to validate the digital signatures of medical prescribers, made accessing the sites faster, making the visualization and validation of prescriptions more agile.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> In this way, the customer's shopping experience became more attractive, because the whole process occurs more quickly, bringing the possibility of a greater customer turnover and consequently optimizing service time, making it possible to serve more customers, increasing the number of sales and predisposing to a higher profit margin in pharmaceutical retail.</p> Wesley Nelo da Silva Chennyfer Dobbins Abi Rached Márcia Mello Costa De Liberal Copyright (c) 2023 Wesley Nelo da Silva, Chennyfer Dobbins Abi Rached, Márcia Mello Costa De Liberal 2023-07-05 2023-07-05 9 e0328 e0328 10.37497/ijhmreview.v9i00.328
