Healthcare databases house “big data” and offer several advantages as a robust research tool. A comprehensive, hospital-based healthcare history of each patient in the acute care space is available. Since patients and physicians are not involved in the data collection, potential bias is eliminated. The Premier Healthcare Database provides a unique opportunity to use real-world data to conduct evidence-based and population-based analyses of drugs, devices, other treatments, disease states, epidemiology, resource utilization, healthcare economics and clinical outcomes. 

The Premier Healthcare Database is a unique dataset containing both administrative data and microbiology test results.
