An integrated, pharmacy-based program designed to improve medication adherence and initiation rates of drugs appears to achieve these goals in a cost-effective manner, according to American research. Outreach from mail orders and retail pharmacists who had specific information from the pharmacy benefited in adherence to medications by 2.1% and initiation rates of drugs by 38.0% when compared with a control group.
