The NIH has issued a Data Management and Sharing (DMS) policy effective January 2023 to promote the sharing of scientific data. There are multiple benefits to sharing scientific data, and ultimately this will facilitate the development of treatments and products that improve human health. Under the DMS policy, NIH intramural investigators will prospectively plan for the managing and sharing of scientific data, submit a DMS plan, and comply with the approved plan [Extract from NIH.gov]
Nightingale is ready to support researchers funded by NIH (or otherwise) to publish their data sets in compliance with such data sharing policies. We have participated in grant applications, and we have created our Data Management and Sharing plan that conforms to the NIH DMS policy. You can include our DMS plan in your grant application and work with us to budget data publication and hosting costs.
We also help researchers publish data in reusable standard formats. Our team members have more than 15 years of experience in healthcare data and interoperability standards, have co-authored interoperability standards, and served as elected US representatives on international standards groups, and have implemented interoperability standards in more than 100 hospitals. We can help you extract data from your source systems in efficient ways and share them in reusable formats, rather than in bespoke formats which delay both publication and reuse of data.
Please contact us to learn how you can comply with the NIH DMS policy, as well as publish data efficiently in formats that support reuse.
