A new information-sharing company called Data Commons is expected to ease the electronic
exchange of physician profile information after it launches its product this
fall. To make this data exchange possible, Data Commons is using the Healthcare
Professional Profile of MedBiquitous, a nonprofit standards development
organization (SDO) started by Johns Hopkins in 2001.
Among the founding members of Data Commons are the American Board of Family
Medicine (ABFP), the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), the Association of
American Colleges (AAMC), the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical
Graduates (ECFMG), the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), and the
National Board of Medical Examiners.
