Analyzing clinical data comes with many challenges. Medical expertise combined with statistical and programming knowledge must go hand-in-hand when applying data mining methods on clinical datasets. This work aims at bridging the gap between clinical expertise and computer science knowledge by providing an application for clinical data analysis with no requirement for statistical programming knowledge. Our tool allows clinical researchers to conduct data processing and visualization in an interactive environment, thus providing an assisting tool for clinical studies. The application was experimentally evaluated with an analysis of Type 1 Diabetes clinical data. The results obtained with the tool are in line with the domain literature, demonstrating the value of our application in data exploration and hypothesis testing.
