Sharing information between databases.

I need to get WordPress user information from one sql database and share it with another sql database for a different WordPress site. I was thinking I could connect to the sql database remotely, get the user information, put it in variables and use those variable to create the users on the current site.

But the more I think about it, the more dumb and unnecessarily difficult that seems. Is there a better way to share user information between databases? I'm open to any suggestions.

Thanks for any help, and I hope my question is clear enough.
