Tool, open source, data management, research query generation, database research.
Integration with other TRANSFoRm components, such as the security framework, has provided a successful working functionality of the query formulation tool within the TRANSFoRm distributed infrastructure. In this way, users can work together on study and protocol design.
In summary, the Query Workbench supports the creation and conduct of Europe-wide studies, and supports searches in multiple heterogeneous data sources, such as GPRD and NIVEL primary care databases, without the need of processing the data into a common format.
Status of development
Query Workbench is used and evaluated with different databases (e.g. NIVEL); employed in a Diabetes cohort study use case.
Investigators to improve clinical study feasibility and recruitment rate; researchers interested in epidemiological and database research.
