Reusing data from electronic health records to enhance clinical and translational research today is a prerequisite for establishing a learning health system. Many research groups have shown the potential of data warehousing and the creation of research databases to support feasibility studies, patient recruitment and data analysis/data mining. I2b2, SHRINE and tranSMART are open source software suites which have been applied in many research networks within the United States. Since 2012 its application is also growing within the European research community (leading to a European i2b2 academic user group). This workshop aims to present current exemplar research use cases from various of those European i2b2 projects, to highlight new i2b2 add-on developments and to illustrate the added value of such research databases.
