Electronic tools to support medication reconciliation—a systematic review.

Marien S, Krug B, Spinewine A. Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association : JAMIA. 2017;24:227-240.

This systematic review found that electronic platforms to conduct medication reconciliation frequently lack the needed functionality to reconcile medication lists. The included studies are limited in scope, have insufficient information about the context and environment in which they were implemented, and often omit relevant patient and provider outcomes. This work underscores the need for development of more effective tools for medication reconciliation and additional implementation studies that comprehensively assess their impact.
