Session Summary

The use of i2b2 in developing distributed computing and specialized i2b2 Hives. This is the direction that that the i2b2 team is working towards with tranSMART in order to increase its support for special i2b2 instances that support Genomics, Imaging science, and Big Data Analytics that can be linked together in a distributed network.
