Our Story

Our business was started with the recognition of the constant need for high quality medical market information. We don’t claim to be Google, but our European and American hospital register is a more specific search engine that allows you to have access to detailed, accurate and up-to-date medical information on over 19,000 European hospitals in 25 countries plus a further 6,000 hospitals in the USA.

We came together as a team of highly qualified professionals because we believe that we can change the way that market information can be gathered, segmented and presented in the medical industry.
