2 Ways to Measure MPR

MPR = Medication Possession Ratio

The common way to calculate this is to look at MPR as a calculation for a drug/patient (i.e., George had a 70% MPR for his medication(s)) or to look at MPR on average (i.e., our MPR for oncology was 75%).

The other option that I think is valuable, but I don’t hear people think about is the percentage of people with an MPR above X (typically 80% but 90% for a few conditions).

I guess the question is what value I get by getting all my patients to be slighlty more adherent compared to getting a specific number of patients to be adherent.
