DRN Demonstration

Someone just remembered for me that I never summarized the results of our Harvard Distributed Research Network research project.

Ken will ultimately write up the findings, but until then, I thought I'd make a few comments.

We presented to the DRN/DEcIDE group on February 19th at 230pm. The group included: DEcIDE centers at the HMO Research Network Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics and the University of Pennsylvania and the participating health plans: Geisinger Health System, Group Health Cooperative, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, HealthPartners, Kaiser Permanente Colorado, and Kaiser Permanente Northern California

I've uploaded the presentation to the wiki.

The short story is that we demonstrated secure transfer of SAS programs over the PHGrid nodes using the PHGrid SSTS service, remote execution of the program at clinical partners (on synthetic data) and then combining the aggregate results together in the NCPHI lab using open source spreadsheet software (StarOffice).
