Resources Beyond PubMed for Research

During my year at Wharton I have had the opportunity to work on various health care projects across multiple sectors, and have needed to look beyond PubMed for data. I have found a few gold mines:

  • HCUPnet: Provides access to health statistics and information on hospital inpatient and emergency department utilization. The data includes costs and charges and allows you to search by diagnosis, procedure or ICD-9 code. It is the on-line query system based on data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP)
  • CMS: Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Research, Statistics and Data provides a wealth of information on the Medicare and Medicaid populations as well as reimbursement and health care spending data.
  • Investext: from Thomson Research. This resource requires a login, but your school may have access. If so, this is the best source for company information and analyst reports. Public, private, and international companies are covered.
