A Researcher's Experiences of MIQUEST

Andrew Meal

Abstract


MIQUEST (Morbidity Information QUery and Export SynTax) is an approach to the collection of computerised data from general practice databases. It is being used increasingly in local and national data collection schemes because it offers the opportunity to access anonymised data in a common format from different general practice computer systems. For individual research projects, however, MIQUEST has yet to find widespread use. This paper describes the experiences from a MIQUEST-based study in five general practices that form part of the Trent Focus Collaborative Research Network.
