Timing of first postdischarge follow-up and medication adherence after acute myocardial infarction.
The investigators sought to determine whether earlier outpatient follow-up after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with higher rates of medication adherence. They found that delayed outpatient follow-up beyond the first 6 weeks after AMI is associated with worse short-term and long-term patient medication adherence. They concluded that medication adherence is modifiable via improved care transitions.
