What's new

We just updated the US IMS LifeLink™ Health Plan Claims Database. Now known as IMS PharMetrics Plus US Health Plan Claims Database, with more than 150 million lives, it offers the ability to link traditionally disparate data sources at the patient level, such as hospital charge master detail, electronic medical records from general practitioner and oncology practices, laboratory detail, over-the-counter medications and consumer demographic and behavioral information.

(1) Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing (SMHWB) from Australia, and

(2) Registry of the Japanese Society of Lung and Heart-Lung Transplantation from Japan

B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA now has a total of 204 database profiles from 27 countries. While we continue to add to our collection on a regular basis, we also continue to update profiles uploaded earlier on an annual basis, so users can access up-to-date information.
