From the Executive Director’s Desk
November 15th, 2017
In my first official message to the i2b2 tranSMART community as the Foundation’s Executive Director, I would like to share my thoughts on our direction.
I have spent 25+ years in the healthcare IT industry serving as a hospital CIO and Corporate Director of Research Computing, as well as being actively involved with the group at Partners that first developed the i2b2 platform. With this experience and my operations background, I am ready and very excited to lead the i2b2 tranSMART Foundation and take it to the next level.
Since the merger of the two foundations in April 2017, we have made significant enhancements to bring the two communities together and restructure the new foundation to meet the needs of the community while fulfilling our mission to realize the promise of precision medicine.
Part of the restructuring involved changes to the Partnership Program to help us secure the financial backing required to offer the right support to our platform users, developers and service providers and help us to expand the Foundation’s strategy. The Partnership Program now offers new benefits to add value to the partners’ organizations and provide deeper opportunities for participation.
We believe it is our community that will move us forward. So, we have recently kicked off our new Membership Program to further build a robust clinical and translational biomedical research community that encompasses scientists, developers, service providers, and clinicians. With the addition of 19 new members this month, we now have a powerful group of 66 active members supporting the platforms and growth of our community.
Lastly, the hard work on the new i2b2 tranSMART PMC (Project Management Committee) lead by Paul Avillach is a great example of our innovation and the possibility of making precision medicine a reality. This PMC is taking a prototype of the integrated i2b2 and tranSMART platforms used at Harvard Medical School and upgrading it to the newest version of tranSMART (16.2) and i2b2. Together, our platforms provide a solid basis for the development of precision medicine and are enabling and validating clinical research.
This is an exciting time for the Foundation and I look forward to working with our open-source, open-data community to drive collaboration and innovation in healthcare and research.
