Putting Research Data Into Your Hands with the MarketScan Databases

The Family of MarketScan® Research Databases is the largest of its kind in the industry, with data on nearly 230 million unique patients since 1995.

Healthcare researchers rely on the MarketScan claims, hospital, electronic medical records (EMR), clinical, and specialty databases to provide the complete picture of patients needed to understand disease progression, treatment patterns, health outcomes, and the associated costs to patients, employers, health systems, and government payers. Custom linking of MarketScan claims to customers’ patient registry, laboratory, or other patient-level data is possible. All data are HIPAA compliant.

While we are available to conduct custom research on your behalf with any of our data, including internal and some linked data sets, you may prefer to access data yourself and perform your own analysis. Some of the MarketScan Research Databases and all of our proprietary analytic tools are available for your direct use through licensing arrangements.
