The goal of this exploratory study is to build a web database platform to facilitate the analysis of the relationship between health status, HRQOL, and HEO in family caregivers and cancer patients. This paper describes the whole design process of the Web database, query and data visualization platform including (1) target users’ requirement (scientific research Needs); (2) medical expenditure panel survey (MEPS) data cleaning and processing; (3) methods and technical details of developing web databases (server-side) and the front-end user interfaces. This web database platform will help researchers achieve efficient querying and visualization of big medical dataset.
