Research group Innovation in Healthcare Processes in Pharmacology
The Research group Innovation in Healthcare Processes in Pharmacology has the ambition to improve pharmaceutical care to support people's ability to live healthily and independently for longer. To this end, we are looking into improvements with regard to the use, distribution and information about medicines.

There is a strong link with the Pharmaceutical Business Administration programme, but also with other (paramedical) healthcare programmes at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. After all, pharmaceutical care is interprofessional and plays an important role at many levels within healthcare. The pharmaceutical field is undergoing rapid change.
One does not innovate or conduct research on one’s own. The research group therefore collaborates with many parties in the field of healthcare (pharmacies, hospitals, other healthcare providers), research (universities, research institutes) and the business community (eHealth developers, pharmaceutical distribution).
