Current & Planned Services Verification Verification+ Research Staff exploring for possible future development: Outcome Tracking Direct Credential Verification
Verification Need: Company want to offer a service to a medical professional and need to make sure that s/he is a medical professional, but do not want to check with every hospital, state, medical school, etc. Solution: Company sends information to Data Commons, LLC, who verifies it. Example: Check to see someone has a valid medical license; is enrolled in medical school. Timeline: Launching in Su 2014. Marketing underway now.
Participation By Data Holders: If your data can be used to “prove” something, e.g. with a “yes / no” answer Medical student status Resident status API complete. Service ready Summer 2014. By Software / Data Consumers / Companies: Connect to our web service.
Verification+ Need: Hospital need verified information / documents proving that someone has the status that is claimed. Solution: Software program hospital uses requests that Data Commons receive official documents, and send them on. Examples: Board certification and license status Timeline: Summer 2014
Participation By Data Holders: If your data can be used in credential verification, or pre-population of fields physicians need filled out, e.g. Physician employment Physician credentialing / privileging Data need to be identified – e.g. about a specific person. Business analysis to begin late winter. Service should be ready in the Summer. By Software / Data Consumers / Companies: CVOs (credential verification organizations) are welcome to participate.
Research Need: Researcher wants to create a robust data set to do research – a data set that includes many organizations’ data, linked together by individual. Solution: Data Commons can search across many organizations’ data at once, create a data set linked together by matched identifiers, and then return a de-identified data set. Example: How many students who have an MCAT score of “x”, a USMLE Step 3 score of “y”, now have ABFM certification and work in a rural area? Timeline: Public demonstration projects underway; service launch after that date. Likely no earlier than Fall 2014.
Participation By Data Holders: If you are willing to share de-identified data, to be combined with other data, about specific individuals. Process to approve research has been drafted. We are not likely to publicly launch the service until Fall 2014 at the very earliest. By Researchers: We are looking for beta users who are interested in working with us to test and develop the service.
