A consistent challenge that MedBiquitous has been called upon to address is bringing to bear a distributed set of tools and resources in support of health professions education (HPE) and credentialing. Although the MedBiquitous community has answered this call on multiple occasions, the challenge remains that the adoption of the standards and guidelines produced by the community occurs only in niche pockets, rather than by the HPE community at large.
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new program initiative “MedBiquitous 2030.”
In the last year, the global COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of our existing technology infrastructure. The delivery of education and the verification of credentials are just two examples of high-level processes that were disrupted and rapidly modified to accommodate changes that accompanied the pandemic. In almost every case, silos between existing technologies and data sets were made abundantly apparent, and integration and interoperability were touted as solutions to this dilemma.
This month, the white paper “MedBiquitous 2030: Building the Digital Ecosystem for Health Professions Education” was posted in our public comment forum for feedback. (Full link below.) This draft has been reviewed by the Steering Committee and its subcommittees. This final draft of the white paper will be available for 30 days before comments are collected and integrated into a version that will be published on our website.
Last week, we hosted a webinar explaining the direction that MedBiquitous is taking and provided a forum for the community to ask questions. If you were unable to join us, the recorded presentation may be watched here. Registration is required and free. Please use your primary AAMC account login and password to register.
