MedBiquitous is a consortium that develops and promotes technology standards for the health professions that advance lifelong learning, continuous improvement, and better patient outcomes. MedBiquitous competency-related standards let you connect what learners know to what they should know. With standards-based competency data, organizations can conduct meaningful analyses of their learners: following individual learners over time or comparing them to peers, as well as assessing trends within or across organizations involved in various phases of the continuum. Technology linking competencies, milestones/performance levels, and EPAs is essential to manage the complexities of assessing the health professions learner using a competency- based and performance-based model. Information on how MedBiquitous standards can be used together in support of Competency-based Education is available in Enabling Competency-based Education: An Illustration.
