Dea Belazi, PharmD, Vice President, Payer & Healthcare Solutions, Source Healthcare Analytics, says that medication adherence is a major keystone that allows a patient to achieve better outcomes in any therapeutic area. He notes that medication adherence is part of the pharmacy benefit manager's (PBM) business model to make sure patients have access to their medications. "Being able to have a patient that's adherent does support the business model for PBM as it relates to getting access to meds whether it's through retail, specialty, mail order pharmacies, etcetera," said Dr Belazi.
