Care, teaching, and research are all priorities of the French public teaching hospitals. In 2004, the remuneration method evolved from a global endowment to a fee-for-services system, based on the use of bibliometric tools. These were used in the present study to describe the research patterns of public teaching hospitals in regards to care and teaching activities. The present study was based on data from the 32 French public teaching hospitals, between 2004 and 2014. Records concerning the publications number, hospital stays, full-time equivalent (FTE) practitioners, and residents per FTE physician were accessed. Statistical analyses were performed using means, Pearson correlation coefficients, and regression lines. The mean number of publications per FTE physician was 0.73, the mean number of hospital stays per FTE physician was 235.8 and the mean number of residents per FTE physician was 0.63. There was a moderate positive correlation between the number of publications per FTE physician and the number of residents per FTE physician (R=0.53) and a negligible correlation between the number of residents per FTE physician and the number of hospital stays per FTE physician (R=0.12). There was a low negative correlation between publication numbers per FTE physician and the number of stays per FTE physician (R=−0.41). All public teaching hospitals presented different patterns in terms of care, teaching, and research activities. None of the 32 hospitals performed well in all three activities. Only nine performed well in at least two out of the three missions.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
