ABM and medication synchronization also have purported benefits to the pharmacy related to workflow, inventory management, the increased revenues associated with additional fills, and payer incentives for improved adherence for certain medication classes 14,23,24,25. While the effect of ABM programs on adherence has been studied, less is known about the DTPs that can be identified by pharmacists as part of the process.…”
