    The 'Zorggegevens' metadatabase gives an overview of organizations that collect data about public health and healthcare in the Netherlands. These are healthcare registers, patient registers, questionaires, monitors, long-term (cohort) studies and other studies that produce data suitable for reuse.

    The metadatabase contains information about who is collecting which data, for what purpose, who is funding, and where the data is used for. The information is aimed for use by health care professionals, researchers, policymakers and students.

    Data sources can be searched on metadata such as ‘category’, ‘medical specialty’ etc. The results will link to data sheets of the specific datasource.
