Medication reconciliation can help prevent adverse health outcomes, but the process is
nontrivial. At its core is a list reconciliation problem: take n lists, review all j items, and decide
which k items to keep. That alone, however, can be mentally taxing and error-prone -- especially
so in the medical context, in which discrepancies of any kind may be clinically significant.
Twinlist offers a fresh perspective on what an effective medication reconciliation interface could
be like, leveraging animation and spatial metaphor to visually clarify, and thereby simplify, the
core reconciliation problem.
