End of Initial ARRA Funding Period

  • Today is the final meeting under the original 2 year ARRA funded grant. We bid farewell and grateful thanks to the site representatives from the Radiology Departments at CHB, Bill Tellier and Paul Lamonica. We welcomed Nandan who has been working at CHB on Clinical Informatics (including i2b2) and will now be the CHB mi2b2 representative. Support via the no-cost extension will enable continued work at Partners- these personnel will support work at CHB and BIDMC with Jesse Wei.
  • Agreed to post all our Presentations on our site hosted by i2b2, Randy will do this with help from Bill and Dave as needed.

We will continue meeting weekly, but will hold them primarily in Charlestown in the OCC in Shawn's office. Once a month (usually the 4th Tuesday, but alternating with the 3rd Tuesday to accommodate holidays) we will hold the meeting in the Harvard Longwood area, typically in the Ware Room of Countway Library where we have been meeting. These monthly meetings will continue to be held on Tuesdays at 10:30- 11:30 AM. The next ones will be:

  • 9/27

mi2b2 software/hardware update

  • No news on the BWH production server yet.
  • Bill figured out that the problems that Steve was having when he tried to use mi2b2 at BWH last week were due to a process problem during the C-find command execution. Bill has the list of the MRNs and accession numbers for Steve and Ron's project, he will use them to finish working out a solution to fixing the problem and hopes to have it ready for Steve and Ron to use when they are back from their work travels.
