Data Commons is designed to support longitudinal research across the health professional continuum, and the transfer and verification of official status and documents related to health education and achievements. Data Commons is undergoing significant development, with the release of software to support research forthcoming. Data Commons will coordinate the identities of individuals such that no new database is created, but the software will be able to request verified data from the data hosts themselves. This presentation will provide an update and mechanisms to access Data Commons.
