As part of PAMA, NCPA has launched Simplify My Meds™, an innovative adherence program that allows pharmacists to coordinate patients' prescription refills on a single day of the month. This model facilitates a more comprehensive and coordinated level of pharmacy care, reduces the potential for gaps in therapy, and promotes improved medication adherence. Research has confirmed that refill coordination at a single pharmacy is recognized as an effective tactic to improve adherence, and to date, more than 26,000 patients are benefiting from this service at more than 700 community pharmacies nationwide. NCPA also launched www.stick2thescript.org, an online resource that provides pharmacists and other health care providers with a comprehensive set of tools, programs, and materials to use with patients to help them understand the goals and outcomes of their prescription regimen, manage their chronic conditions, and take their medications as directed.

PAMA programs specifically focus on:

  • Providing tools for pharmacists to advance patient understanding of adherence behavior;
  • Tracking pharmacist engagement and measuring patient understanding of the importance of their medication regimen;
  • Promoting increased emphasis on integrating adherence practices into pharmacy education; and
  • Communicating results and effectiveness to policy makers, healt
