B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA® (www.bridgetodata.org) is a unique online reference profiling population healthcare databases for use in epidemiology and health outcomes research. Drawing on decades of experience with databases, DGI, LLC, a nonprofit organization, developed this updated tool and launched it in 2009 to allow users to identify databases with relevant populations for their research.

This user-friendly resource allows users to:

  • View an interactive map & database listing;
  • Search for databases by region/country & other criteria;
  • Review individual database attributes;
  • Compare database elements side-by-side;
  • Export database search results into Excel;
  • Modify or Narrow database search results;
  • Save database searches;
  • Create collections of database profiles; and
  • Access a Glossary of international terms (e.g., coding systems).
