What is adherence?

Medication adherence, sometimes called medication compliance, is when a patient takes their prescription drug correctly: on time, in the correct dosage and for the length of time their doctor prescribed. If they don’t, it could mean the drug doesn’t work like it should. There are many reasons why a patient might not take a drug correctly — or at all. McKesson Pharmacy Systems’ Adherence Performance Solutions dashboard helps address these reasons.

The APS dashboard benefits both your patients and your pharmacy

Patient outcomes matter — and so do payer quality measures. The APS dashboard is a simple, practical and affordable way to understand and benchmark your pharmacy’s adherence performance while improving patient medication compliance.

For your patients: Better medication adherence and convenience

The APS dashboard aids medication adherence by improving your pharmacy’s oversight of and communication with patients.

  • Build a closer relationship with your patients with your patients with customized and automated communication, patient counseling and clinical programs that promote patient medication adherence
  • Increase the number of prescriptions filled by ensuring patients receive their medication regularly through prescription pick-up reminders and bundled multiple prescription refills
  • Improve convenience for patients by offering mobile delivery to their home or hospital bedside
  • Enhance care for your elderly patients by communicating directly with them about the potential effects of high-risk medications and, with their permission, working with their physicians to find less-risky options

For your pharmacy: Better adherence monitoring, revenue and reimbursements

The insights you gain from the intuitive, user-friendly APS online dashboard can lead to increased revenue and profit, reimbursements, network inclusion and contracting advantages for your pharmacy. The APS dashboard delivers:

  • The ability to proactively identify, target and counsel patients who fall below quality measures for medication adherence
  • Insights on where to adjust and improve your medication adherence Star Ratings through actionable patient-level detail, including patient drug interactions
  • Data to share with payers and prescribers to prove the value of your pharmacy to their network
