Multimed Packaging Shown to Improve Medication Adherence – APhA submits compounding comments to FDA. – (866) 348-2889.

An improvement in clinical outcomes and medication adherence rates when patients used medication therapy management (MTM) services and multimed blister card packaging was clearly shown in a recent study announced by Omnicell.

The randomized clinical trial, STOMPP (Study to Measure the Impact of Pharmacists and Pharmacy Services on Medication Non-Adherence), compared the use of adherence medication packaging and MTM services to the use of traditional pill bottles.

During the 1-year study, patients were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 groups, based on how their medications were dispensed, in multimed blister packaging or vials, and whether they had received pharmacist-provided MTM services. Study participants who received multimed blister cards had the most marked change in adherence scores compared with pill bottle groups, achieving greater than 45% above baseline. Adherence improvements with the use of MTM services and multimed packaging were proven individually, and in combination.
