Rangachari P, Dellsperger KC, Fallaw D, et al. Quality management in health care. 2019;28:84-95.

Investigators found that there was a lack of understanding about both the technical process of using the electronic health record as intended and the workflow needed. The authors suggest applying a sociotechnical model to enhance medication reconciliation using the electronic health record.
