Just came across this organization, MedBiquitous


The MedBiquitous Consortium develops IT standards for healthcare education and quality improvement.

According to their website:

Founded by Johns Hopkins Medicine and leading professional medical societies, MedBiquitous is a not-for-profit, international group of professional associations, universities, commercial, and governmental organizations seeking to develop and promote technology standards for the health professions that advance lifelong learning, continuous improvement, and better patient outcomes. MedBiquitous is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop information technology standards supporting the health professions.

MedBiquitous members are creating a technology blueprint for advancing the health professions. Based on XML and Web services standards, this blueprint will weave together the many activities, organizations, and resources that support the ongoing education and improvement of healthcare professionals. Ultimately, this blueprint will seamlessly support the learner in ways that will improve patient outcomes and simplify the administrative work associated with lifelong learning and continuous improvement.
Their standards and development efforts include work in the following areas:
  • - Activity Reporting
  • - Competencies
  • - Curriculum Inventory
  • - Educational Achievement
  • - Educational Trajectory
  • - Healthcare Learning Object Metadata
  • - Medical Education Metrics
