The MIMIC Querybuilder is a graphical interface for running SQL queries on the MIMIC-III database. It is intended for light exploration of the data, in particular for researchers who are new to MIMIC-III and seeking to gain an understanding of its structure. Researchers seeking to carry out research projects with MIMIC should follow our instructions for building a local version of the database.
Notes and limitations
Queries should be written using PostgreSQL syntax. Two key limitations have been implemented to manage server load:
- The system has been intentionally limited to return only the first 5000 rows of a query
- All queries have a maximum running time of 15 minutes. Queries that run for over 15 minutes will time out, returning no results.
While we will aim to provide a stable service, our laboratory has limited resources and so we cannot commit to providing continuous uptime.
