Our project looks at novel user interfaces to facilitate medication reconciliation. We are focusing on the user interface that physicians might use to compare and merge two separate lists of medications. Similarities and differences between the lists need to be identified; decisions need to be made as to which medications should be continued and which ones should be stopped. We describe a novel prototype called TwinList that uses animation and spatial layout to reveal similarities, and color to highlight differences in similar medications. Simple interactive controls facilitate the selection of sets of medications to be continued or stopped. We are in the early stages of user evaluation.
