Our contribution as economists and general practitioners to population health research focuses on Health Services Research (HSR). HSR is a multidisciplinary field of research focusing on the use, cost, quality, accessibility, supply, organization, financing and results of health care services.
Our research essentially focuses on analyzing actors’ behaviors in primary care. Following a micro-economic approach, the objective is to analyze the behavior of users / patients of health care services, health professionals working within these services (doctors, nurses, pharmacists) and the funders of these services. Our research aims to characterize these behaviors, to study the factors that determine them and to evaluate their effects on the consumption and production of care.
