AIP: A proposed mechanism for evaluating adherence improvement initiatives
Pharmacy prescription databases are useful for determining rates of adherence to long-term medication therapy. Thus far, however, analyses based on such databases have provided only snapshots of adherence rates over discrete time intervals and have been of limited usefulness for the timely measurement of adherence trends when adherence improvement strategies change over time. The Adherence Index of Performance is new mechanism that can be used to monitor pharmacy prescription databases over time to detect changes that occur when adherence improvement strategies are changed during a therapeutic period.
