What Will You Find?
While a website rather than a database, Becker’s Healthcare, is a must-read publication for informed decision making about hospitals and health systems. The scope of coverage includes healthcare news, analysis, commentary, surveys, studies, and rankings providing timely insights on strategy, operations, supply chain, finance, administration, innovation, the practitioner, and more for the healthcare market.

The sections include: hospitals, clinical, ambulatory surgery centers, health IT, dental, payer, behavioral, and physician.
