  1. Project timeline

The alpha work set out to test an implementation of an “Open Community” data standard, expressed in machine readable terms and used for interchange of data by multiple organisations fulfilling different roles.

Common data standards for community-based services

The project sought to provide a means of achieving trusted data that can be aggregated from multiple federated directories with duplicates removed. The team addressed the mechanisms needed to achieve trusted data sets and measure the success of applying the standard.

The trust model means that consumers such as the NHS can consume service data compiled by local authorities and other organisations with confidence. The project tested against the user stories identified in the previous discovery phase.
