Annual i2b2 AUG / SHRINE Community Conference

The annual i2b2 Academic User Group (AUG) and Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE) meeting was held June 21, 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting enables provides the opportunity for i2b2 and SHRINE users to come together to , network with other i2b2 users, and speak to many of their colleagues about their current and future endeavors with the i2b2. It also provides an opportunity for users to hear from the i2b2 Members of the i2b2 community are presented with the on-going development being done by the i2b2 and SHRINE development teams on key features that are available or being developed at this time..

This year the overlying theme of many of the presentations was using i2b2 and SHRINE for analyzing Phenotypic data.
