Appointment Based Model

What is the ABM? The Appointment Based Model (ABM) is a patient care service designed to improve patients’ adherence to medications and build efficiencies in pharmacy operations. Each patient enrolled in the ABM has a designated appointment day to pick up all medications. Pharmacy staff call patients in advance of their appointment to identify any changes to the medications and confirm that each prescription should be refilled. The model can be implemented in any pharmacy setting to improve patients’ medication adherence, to build efficiency into pharmacy workflow, and to manage potential issues before the patient arrives at the pharmacy to pick up their medicines.
