Given the importance of high adherence to long-term pharmacotherapy and the growing need to improve medication adherence, choosing the best intervention represents a challenge for healthcare providers. A dose-dispensing service is defined as the repackaging of solid oral medication into dose-dispensing aids by a healthcare provider, mostly in a community pharmacy or hospital pharmacy, in order to assist patients in the management of their polymedication. The personalized dose-dispensing aid organizes individual oral doses according to their prescribed intake schedule throughout the day and the week. This review aims to describe the pros and cons of different dose-dispensing services and technologies, summarizes current evidence and addresses research gaps.
