Abstract

Medication adherence plays an important role in the effective management of chronic conditions, yet nonadherence related to therapeutic complexity and numerous visits to the pharmacy is well documented in the literature. Medication Synchronization (Med Sync) programs work to overcome this barrier by standardizing medication refills for a less frequent, generally once monthly pickup. Features of Med Sync programs as well the impact on adherence will be discussed.
