Meeting Minutes

  • mi2b2 STAR-D installation site update:
    • (MGH) Darren and Chris got mi2b2 up and running at MGH last week.
    • (BWH) Chris will make an appointment with Mike Clyne who Kathy suggested would be the person to help do the BWH install as soon as possible.

  • IRB update: No new information. In brief, CHB amendment is in process, Partners is done and BIDMC will be done after system is in place and needs are clarified for that site given the current status of the i2b2 instance at their institution.

  • Planning utilization at sites:
    • Need to get 'plumbing' (software and hardware programming for image query, retrieve and transfer) in place and then auditing before making it available to our first users. Estimated date for being ready for the first protypical study IRB approved to use this infrastructure is March 2011 (exactly on target with our grant proposal). If the IRB were approved by this fall, this team could use these images to finish working out the bugs of the system.
    • Potential future issues noted at MGH is that the server is set up to access their system through a single entry gateway. If anything were to happen to shut that gateway down, access would not be available until the gateway is back open. In the i2b2 world that is normal and to be expected. In the clinical world it wouldn't be tolerated. Mi2b2 is in the i2b2 world and as such will not need to perform at clinical specifications.

  • Report from preceding XNAT-mi2b2 T-con:

New XNAT deliverables were articulated:

    • Example script to create projects, associate users and data with project, and upload data using REST API-- to be available within the month
    • Provide authentication through i2b2 so that users can log into XNAT using i2b2 username and password
    • Enable XNAT administration management via web services to allow i2b2 creation and maintenance of information (reconfigure roles)
