GPT Agents are becoming a critical aspect of healthcare management, and its success is often influenced by various factors, including the patient-doctor relationship. The Morisky Medication Adherence Scale, 8-item version (MMAS-8) combined with the Patient-Doctor Relationship Questionnaire (PDRQ) can identify and address healthcare-related dimension barriers to medication adherence.
The MMAS-8 is a highly validated tool designed to assess medication adherence.
The PDRQ is another validated questionnaire assessing the patient's perception of their relationship with their healthcare provider.
Using a GPT agent, the MMAS-8 identifies both intentional and unintentional aspects of non-adherence and can be combined with the patient's perception of the doctor-patient relationship via PDRQ, giving healthcare providers insights relative to the healthcare-related dimensions impacting adherence.
Question 3: "Have you ever cut back or stopped taking your medication(s) without telling your doctor because you felt worse when you took it?"
- Use PDRQ to assess patient perceptions of communication and trust within the patient-doctor relationship.
Question 6: When you feel like your health condition is under control, do you sometimes stop taking your medication(s)?
- PDRQ can highlight areas where patients feel they lack information or understanding.
7. Taking medication(s) every day is a real inconvenience for some people. Do you ever feel hassled about sticking to your treatment plan?
- Evaluate PDRQ responses for indications of shared decision-making experiences.
2. People sometimes miss taking their medications for reasons other than forgetting. Thinking over the past two weeks, were there any days when you did not take your medication(s) ?
- PDRQ can shed light on the patient's sense of engagement and empowerment in their healthcare journey.
