The mission of the MedBiquitous Competencies Working Group is to develop XML standards and supporting guidelines for competency data enabling educational resources and activities to be tied to a competency framework.

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. Enabling Competency-based Education: An Illustration describes how MedBiquitous standards and specifications can be used to represent competency frameworks, milestones/performance levels, EPAs, and levels of entrustment and shows how those frameworks can be interrelated.
