Center for Health Management and Law (ZGWR)

The Center for Health Management and Law (ZGWR) bundles the skills of the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences in the fields of Health Management, Health Economy, and Health Law and serves as a platform for interdisciplinary, inter-faculty cooperation. The scientific center was founded on December 3, 2009 in cooperation of the faculties of Business and Law and Social Work and Health Management.

Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region have a great number of health care institutions and providers of health services. Health management is the business branch with the greatest employment effect. As in the entire Federal Republic, health care institutions are currently subject to dramatic change concerning the requirements for structure, financing, quality assurance, networking, and contract design. This results in a continually growing need for practice-oriented research and continuing education.

The ZGWR has set itself the goals to become a contact partner for health care businesses, service providers, statutory health insurances, advocacy groups, and the interested public in the region, to promote the anchoring of teaching and research contents from the health care field at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, and to enhance the appeal of the university for competent teachers and executives interested in continuing education from all areas of health management. The center is also intended to support networking between university and health care sector in the region. 

It is intended to support and promote its members in projects in research, development, consulting, teaching, and continuing education, in particular by acquiring third-party funding. The founding meeting, in which 8 scientists and 3 employees of the university took part, elected the professors Busse and Meyer as Directors of the ZGWR. Both directors are considered proven experts in the field of health care management and law and their lecture and consulting skills are in demand far beyond the boundaries of the City of Frankfurt.
 

The ZGWR started its work on January 1, 2010. In 2013, it organized two symposia on sector-spanning supply in the health care field. Current projects include the "OP Barometer" of Prof. Busse which appears every 2 years and the bi-monthly report on the European medication laws titled "Blick nach Brüssel" by Prof. Meyer. Together with the doctoral candidate Stefanie Kortekamp M.A., he has conducted the research project "Process optimization in medication management under special consideration of the medication supply in retirement homes and care institutions" (ProMmt).
