Since 1988, healthcare researchers have used Truven Health MarketScan® data to understand disease progression, treatment patterns, health outcomes, and their associated costs to patients, employers, health plans, and the government. Fully HIPAA compliant, the MarketScan databases are among the largest, proprietary databases used for healthcare research in the United States. They are the basis of over 1,400 peer-reviewed articles published in leading journals since the first article appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1990 (J.B. Hillman et al.). MarketScan-based research has made a substantial contribution to the body of literature used to formulate policy decisions and improve healthcare for Americans.
