URC Eco is a publicly-funded research and knowledge unit that is part of APHP. URC Eco’s primary mission is to inform the decision-making process of stakeholders in the health care system, including policy makers, institutions and professionals in the areas of health economics, health services research and health policy analysis. To that end, URC Eco carries out research at the local, national and international levels with a focus on the assessment of diagnostic, therapeutic and organizational innovation, the supply of health care (costs, pricing, organization, quality, efficiency and resource allocation methods), the health care process (doctor-patient interaction, determinants of health services utilization) and health care policy (legislation, regulation, financing and insurance). The URC Eco has been involved in several EU funded projects and economic evaluations at the national level. As part of the APHP research directorate URC Eco is currently involved in over 20 trials.
