2. Description
The Department of Epidemiology of the Lazio Region (DEP) is a 35 year old public health and research institution within the Italian National Health Service, referral centre for epidemiology at a regional level. It is involved in and coordinates a large number of international, national and local collaborations. In recent years, outcome research has become one of the main topics treated. The DEP runs the mortality information system of the Lazio region and has large experience in the use of health information systems in epidemiological studies. Since 2008, also drug prescription data are available for all residents in the Region, and have since been used in cohort studies in the field of outcome research and appropriateness evaluation. The DEP runs a regional programme of outcome evaluation of health care with public disclosure of results and coordinates a national outcome evaluation programme. The Cochrane Review Group on Drug and Alcohol has the editorial base in the DEP
