At this time, data on blood transfusions are not structurally
collected and analyzed. The PROTON2 study we want to change this by
setting a data warehouse which besides transfusion data from Dutch
hospitals also detailed data on the blood products themselves are
housed. Due to this combination, it becomes possible to determine the
cause of undesirable transfusion reactions, or other clinical outcomes
to link characteristics of the products, production or donors.

different patient groups
of different hospitals to compare. The ultimate goal is to use the
hard data that the study yields PROTON2, safety and efficiency of
blood transfusions in the Netherlands to improve. You will help in the
design and construction of the data warehouse, perform various
statistical analyzes and will be engaged in the Solving methodological
