An increasing amount of electronic health data is being collected for patient care, and with it the opportunity to explore reusing this data, for example to support clinical research. We explore how researchers can be supported in identifying potential study participants using a semi-automated approach to query anonymised datasets remotely. This paper describes the socio-technical considerations when answering this question in a central England case study.
