One of the exciting features of the latest i2b2 upgrade in ACT is the addition of two plugins to assist in the local identification of patients. Both plugins are run in your site's local i2b2 web client.
- SHRINE-to-i2b2 Connector plugin enables a local site admin (i.e. a user with MANAGER role in the local i2b2 project that SHRINE uses) to easily view all SHRINE queries that come into your site's SHRINE node. The plugin allows the local site admin to filter all incoming queries by flag status and search by query name.
- Patient Data Exporter allows the local data concierge to download a list of i2b2 patient numbers for a specified patient set of interest. These i2b2 patient numbers can then be referenced back to patient MRNs (using your site's own process) for study recruitment purposes.
These plugins were distributed in a pre-packaged i2b2 1.7.12A web client as part of the upgrade process. You can check if your version of your i2b2 web client contains these plugins by confirming if the existence of the folder /webclient/js-i2b2/cells/plugins/ACT/. If you do not see the 'ACT' folder, you can download the pre-packaged web client below which will contain these plugins already enabled for use.
Step-by-Step Instructions for installing and configuring ACT plugins

Once you have confirmed your local i2b2 project ID that SHRINE uses, you should add the following i2b2 role for your i2b2 account in your PM_PROJECT_USER_ROLES table
If the account you login with does not have the MANAGER role, you will not see the SHRINE-to-i2b2 Connector or Patient Data Exporter plugins in the list of available plugins.
