We all face struggles with integrating data from multiple systems in support of the education, training, and credentialing of our clinical learners. The costs associated with having these integrations, or not having them available at all, come at a very high price in our current ecosystem. Person power, physical resources, data storage, and financial support are all necessary to make these integrations happen today, but they can occur in inefficient and ineffective ways.

In April 2021, MedBiquitous published the white paper "MedBiquitous 2030: Building the Digital Ecosystem for Health Professions Education" and called for the community to gather and develop the necessary technology and data standards to reduce costs and make data integrations more efficient and effective.

At our Aug. 16 webinar, "Cost Feasibility & Ed Tech Interoperability," we will be joined by a panel of education, technology, and credentialing colleagues to discuss the cost feasibility of moving towards an integrated digital ecosystem. The discussion will explore concepts proposed in the MedBiquitous 2030 white paper and compare them with current practices and costs. The audience will be invited to participate in the conversation.
