As a long-time member organization of MedBiquitous, the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) is pleased to be the new organizational “home” for our technology standards. Under the leadership of the AAMC, MedBiquitous will continue its mission to develop and promote standards for the health professions that advance lifelong learning, continuous improvement, and better patient outcomes.
The AAMC, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and the current and future MedBiquitous staff are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible and will keep you updated throughout this process.
Johns Hopkins Medicine recently mailed letters to MedBiquitous members announcing this change of ownership, along with contract documents necessary to complete this transition. Members are asked to sign and return to Johns Hopkins Medicine the agreements that were enclosed, which effectively terminate existing memberships in MedBiquitous under the current ownership structure. Once a signed termination agreement is received, the uncommitted portion of member dues will be refunded.
The AAMC will evaluate a new participation model with input from key stakeholders and guided by a new director. Please be assured that current members may participate in any scheduled working group meetings and continue collaboration through the MedBiquitous Confluence site during this evaluation period.
We look forward to this new chapter for MedBiquitous under the leadership of the AAMC, and we hope you will continue to join with us on this important mission.
