Additional Study Information: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a multi-part intervention to reduce barriers to medication use. All subjects who are enrolled in the study will undergo the following interventions: 1) A complete medication reconciliation will be done where you will be asked about all current medication you have been prescribed. This is to create an accurate list of current medications you are taking. 2) A two-time visit with a pharmacist to review all the medicines you take, reasons for not taking medicines, and to create a personalized plan to help you take your medicines. After 4 weeks of the pharmacist visit, the pharmacist will check in with you to see if your personalized plan is working. 3) You will be trained on how to install the subject portal called MyConnect on your smartphone. On MyConnect you can review your own medicine list and notify your doctor if you have any questions about your medicines or need refills of any of your medicines. 4) If you are interested we will help you download an application on your smartphone or tablet that is free and will send you reminders when it is time to take your medicines. Many subjects with cancer experience frustration with the large number and complex scheduling of their medications, known as pill burden. This study will help us find out how much pill burden exists in subjects with cancer at various stages, and how this intervention can help. Results of this study may help us figure out the best way to help subjects get and manage their medications in the future.
