Abstract: An ABMS program in a community pharmacy setting was associated with higher rates of adherence and persistence for patients who had been taking chronic medications for at least 6 months. Approximately 18 to 35 additional ABMS participants were adherent for every 100 patients enrolled when compared with usual care. For every 100 patients receiving usual care, 17 to 40 additional patients in the ABMS group were persistent. This study shows that ABMS programs can improve medication adherence and persistence for pa… Show more

“…The results of our study are similar to previous ABMS research. For example, Holdford and Saxena evaluated adherence to six different drug classes for patients enrolled in an ABMS programme compared to a matched cohort of patients not enrolled (usual care) . Adherence was consistently better in the ABMS group as measured both by mean PDC (0.80‐0.87 vs 0.58‐0.62) and by percentage of patients achieving at least 0.80 PDC (66.1%‐79.5% vs 37.0%‐40.8%).…”
