The support of both the academic and practical application of health sciences highlights the challenge of the Internet 2 (I2) health sciences initiative (I2HSI). This effort involves both the formulation of applications and supporting technologies as well as guidelines for their use in the area of health sciences. Key elements of the I2HSI include the use of visualization, collaboration, medical informatics, telemedicine, and educational tools that support the field of health sciences. Specific medical middleware (MedMid) and virtual reality techniques provide a technology base that enable educators and practitioners to advance the field of health sciences. The I2HSI continues to advance collaboration in distributed health science environments with a focus on security, performance, and policy.
