To organize global healthcare databases into searchable models.


The electronic Index (digest) of International Databases, developed by ISPOR in 2008, is an invaluable source of information for health care outcomes researchers, health care decision makers, clinicians, and ultimately, patients around the world. Currently the Digest lists 390 databases from 47 different countries and consists of key attributes of health care databases grouped by country. The continual evaluation of the databases and key attributes is a necessary task to keep current of global health care research.
