Mebiquitous “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.”
These guys do great work that underpins many collaborative initiatives in healthcare. The University of Calgary Cumming School of Medicine is a proud and active member.
On 20 Jan 2016, Medbiq announced a new working group, the Learning Experience group.
“Education analytics offers an opportunity to better track learner educational activities and to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the healthcare workforce as well as factors associated with higher performance…
…The new Learning Experience Working Group will develop a set of Experience API (xAPI) profiles to provide guidance around collecting data on specific types of healthcare learning activities. The scope includes simulations (Virtual patients, mannekin-based simulations, preceptor-reviewed simulations, virtual worlds/games, Standardized Patients, etc) and clinical training activities and experiences.”
Members of the OpenLabyrinth Development Consortium are actively involved in this initiative and in Medbiquitous.
And just a quick heads up, the Medbiquitous Annual Conference is coming up: May 16-17, 2016 in Baltimore. A very innovative and collaborative group – come join us.
