Specifications

MedBiquitous specifications are draft standards to advance healthcare education and competence assessment. The following specifications are currently in development.

  • Competency Object
    Defines and uniquely identifies individiual competencies.
  • Educational Achievement
    Documents a learner's competencies and achievement and makes that data portable.
  • Educational Trajectory
    Describes the path of an individual learner through one or more programs of study, including informal professional development and breaks in matriculation.
  • Performance Framework
    Represents expected levels of performance related to a competency.
  • SCORM for Healthcare
    Enables interoperability for healthcare e-learning

The following standards are undergoing revision:

Competency Object

The Competency Object specification allows one to represent individual competency objects, including competencies, learning outcomes, objectives, goals, and other expectations. The Competency Object specification is meant to be used in concert with the MedBiquitous Competency Framework standard.

Educational Achievement

Educational Achievement specification facilitates the exchange of data about a learner's achievements and competencies across the continuum of professional education. It includes the ability to document entrustment decisions and achievement of milestones.

Educational Trajectory

The MedBiquitous Educational Trajectory Profile extends the LEAP2A specification for e-portfolios. The profile provides a consistent format for describing the path of an individual learner through one or more programs of study, including informal professional development and breaks in matriculation.

Performance Framework

The Performance Framework specification allows one to represent expected levels of performance related to a competency in a standard format. Performance frameworks can then be referenced from other data to make learner performance data portable and easily understood across a learner's career.

SCORM for Healthcare

SCORM for Healthcare extends the SCORM 2004 suite of standards and specification to enable access, reuse, durability, and interoperability of online healthcare education.
