Healthcare Outcomes Research Centre

Established in 2016, the RCSI-based Healthcare Outcomes Research Centre (HORC) is a leading Irish research centre dedicated to the development and dissemination of evidence-based research on healthcare outcomes that informs healthcare policy and improves patient outcomes.

Health outcomes research examines the end results of healthcare services, with a focus on patients’ experiences, preferences and values; informing decisions at different levels of the healthcare system including those who receive, provide, organise and pay for healthcare.
