The TRIP Database is a clinical search engine designed to allow clinicians to quickly find answers to their clinical questions using the best available evidence. The TRIP Database started in 1997 as a result of the work of the founders in answering clinical questions.

The creation of the TRIP Database allowed the simultaneous searching of multiple sites, hence speeding up the question answering process
