Community pharmacy teams are best positioned to address medication adherence in daily encounters with patients. However, in daily pharmacy practice, the extent of medication adherence counselling and services appear to be marginal. Advances in telecommunication technologies and the widespread use of mobile phone and text messages services may help to overcome non-adherence. The software application TopCompliance has been designed to remind patients via text messages that a refill is due soon. The novelty is the calculation of the day of the reminder message according to an algorithm that uses pill counts, thus avoiding alert fatigue. We aim to implementing the service in community pharmacies.
