ACT National Query Tool

About ACT

Over 125 million patient records can now be queried by Frontiers: University of Kansas Clinical and Translational Science Institute clinical researchers and study teams through the Accrual to Clinical Trials Network to explore and validate patient cohorts and identify potential collaborators for investigator-initiated single- and multi-site clinical trials.

The ACT Network will let you do the same study feasibility queries done today with HERON for the University of Kansas Health System but against the i2b2 databases across the entire CTSA consortium, all from the comfort of your office. This can be valuable as preliminary data for grant proposals and clinical trial estimation.
