The HealthSTAR database, produced from 1978 to 2000 by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in collaboration with the American Hospital Association, has been merged with NLM's MEDLINE/PubMed database and has been discontinued as a separate database. Indexing coverage of the health services administration journal literature that was the focus of HealthSTAR is continued by NLM in MEDLINE/PubMed.
