I am trying to simply read smart contract data by calling an external view function getOwner which returns an ethereum address using wagmi hook useContractRead. I found that I am getting both the error and data fields non-empty. On further inspection I found that the data that I am getting is correct but theerror is also not empty and the isError is also set to true.

This is the error message string that I am getting

"Error: missing revert data in call exception; Transaction reverted without a reason string [ See: https://links.ethers.org/v5-errors-CALL_EXCEPTION ] (transaction={\"gasLimit\":{\"type\":\"BigNumber\",\"hex\":\"0x01bad458\"},\"to\":\"0xb16DeC9F103B1bf9393380A05363995177C6954C\",\"data\":\"0x893d20e8\",\"accessList\":null}, code=CALL_EXCEPTION, version=providers/5.7.2)\n    at Logger.makeError (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@ethersproject/logger/lib.esm/index.js:231:23)\n    at Logger.throwError (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@ethersproject/logger/lib.esm/index.js:240:20)\n    at eval (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@ethersproject/providers/lib.esm/fallback-provider.js:573:28)\n    at Array.forEach (<anonymous>)\n    at FallbackProvider.eval (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@ethersproject/providers/lib.esm/fallback-provider.js:553:37)\n    at Generator.next (<anonymous>)\n    at fulfilled (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@ethersproject/providers/lib.esm/fallback-provider.js:19:58)"

This is the sample code I am using to read data

import ...  // imported necessary packages and modules

export default function OwnerDashboard() {
    const router = useRouter()

    const { address: account, isConnected } = useAccount()

    const { chain } = useNetwork()
    const chainId = chain?.id.toString() || "31337"
    console.log(chainId, account)

    const contractReader = useContractRead({
        abi: PatientMedicalRecordSystemAbi,
        address: networkMapping[chainId].PatientMedicalRecordSystem[0],
        functionName: "getOwner",

The contract function which I am invoking is getOwner from this contract.

Am I using wagmi the wrong way to get the data out? Or what is the issue?
