It is only one of 14 nationwide to broaden the range of knowledge to help the health care system make measurable improvements in the quality and safety of medications and other treatments. In a joint effort, the Department faculty works with the Department of Pharmacy Practice through the UIC Center for Pharmacoeconomic Research (CPR). Previously, AHRQ designated the CPR as one of 13 research centers in the country responsible to conduct research to evaluate the Medicare Part D benefit.
