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)
World Map with People inside the Countries
