The Medication Use Experience Research and Design (RxD) Lab

The RxDLab is an interdisciplinary healthcare improvement research team based at Purdue University College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacy Practice

At The RxDLab, we believe improving medication use safety requires a commitment to understand the complexity of medication use process and leveraging the power of healthcare professional, patient, and caregiver insights to inform design of interventions. We leverage the power of research and user centered design approaches to design and implement system and technology-based solutions to improve safety and quality of medication use across the healthcare continuum.
