Membership and Access
Once you have identified data of interest, you will need to meet several requirements to ensure responsible use of sensitive data. You can read more about requirements in the access section of each dataset on the PHS Data Portal.
PHS offers office hours to assist you with questions you may have about accessing or working with our datasets. Please schedule your meeting using our online sign-up website.
PHS regularly organizes data trainings that will help you get familiar with our datasets.
Upcoming data trainings:
- April 5th, 4PM - 6PM
- April 19th, 4PM - 6PM
The trainings are meant to provide an introduction to the cloud-based cohort cutting tool (Redivis) on the PHS Data Portal. We will use claims data during both sessions, specifically Truven MarketScan, which PHS hosts. While creating a sample project, general background to claims data and Truven will be provided.
