The search engine for
healthcare databases
B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA® is Your Connection to Healthcare Databases Worldwide - a unique non-profit online reference describing population healthcare databases for use in epidemiology and health outcomes research. (NOTE: This site does not contain any proprietary data or actual datasets from any healthcare database.)
Drawing on decades of experience with databases, we developed this tool to allow users to identify key features and compare database profiles. This resource also serves as an educational tool for public health research and as a template for health systems planners to design or refine their healthcare data.

What our customers say

This easy-to-use service gives the best snapshot information about health-related databases. It’s easy to compare databases based on numerous criteria.

Vickie Pon, Pharm.D. , Clinical Pharmacist at OptumRx, Irvine, CA

It is impressive that your list is getting longer. The search engine (B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA) is useful when a researcher gets overview of various databases at a glance.

Kaori Nomura, RPh MPH, Jikei University, Japan

This "database" of databases is very useful in my day-to-day activities as it allows me to find quickly which databases will fit the best regarding the research questions I have. It is very complete and contains information on countries for which it is sometimes difficult to find information elsewhere.
