We found that a low-complexity pharmacy-based intervention increased antipsychotic adherence among patients with SMI. This finding is congruent with several studies that have reported improved adherence with prescription tracking and unit-of-dose packaging by pharmacy personnel for patients with other chronic illnesses. The intervention is feasible in clinical practice and is now implemented in 5 facilities in Veterans Integrated Services Network 11. Health systems may find this an affordable and logistically feasible method for addressing poor adherence among their patient populations. However, to improve the outcomes of patients with SMI, additional chronic care management components may be needed.
