We are HTRIC

HTRIC connects research, health technology and clinical practice for more healthy years of life

How can HTRIC help you?

Technological innovations are essential when it comes to achieving more healthy years of life. If we want to keep healthcare manageable in the future, the contribution of technological innovations and the cooperation between clinical practice and technology are an absolute must. Together these can lead to fewer invasive procedures, faster recovery and earlier detection. A lot of this technology is already being developed, however too often the solutions do not reach the patient, or they do so too late.

As a connector within a fragmented landscape, HTRIC brings people and domains together. Whether you are a clinical practitioner, researcher, student or executive… You will find the amplifier of our collective innovation force within HTRIC!

So, how can HTRIC help you? Please tell us about your question or request, and we will put you in touch with an expert on our team.

From plan to successful project: it is a road with ups and downs, a mission that calls for tenacity. The Open Diagnostics Ecosystem (ODE) is such a project that has been developed from drawing table to reality by the LIFE Cooperative on and around Campus Groningen the last years.
