The Health Information Research Unit (HIRU) in the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact (HEI) at McMaster University conducts research in the field of health information science and is dedicated to the generation of new knowledge about the nature of health and clinical information problems, the development of new information resources to support evidence-based health care, and the evaluation of various innovations in overcoming health care information problems.
HIRU has created the Web-Available Population Pharmacokinetic Software (WAPPS-Hemo). Healthcare professionals who treat patients with hemophilia can use the WAPPS-Hemo platform to collect advice from a network of approximately 500 hemophilia treatment centres worldwide to create a customized treatment and prevention plan for patients. The solution is a leader in its field and has been licensed to several pharmaceutical companies.
