Abstract

Pharmacy databases are commonly used to assess medication usage, and a number of measures have been developed to measure patients' adherence to medication. An extensive literature now supports these measures, although few studies have systematically compared the properties of different adherence measures.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 June 2012.
All research outputs
#14,146,599
of 22,668,244 outputs
Outputs from BMC Health Services Research
#5,033
of 7,576 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#98,482
of 167,155 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Health Services Research
#63
of 96 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,668,244 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,576 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.6. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 167,155 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 96 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
