Competencies Working Group

This working group will develop requirements for representing health professions competencies and collaborating with the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee Competency Data Standards working group to ensure requirements are incorporated into IEEE competency-related standards. The working group may supplement these activities by specifying requirements for web services to enable the exchange of competency data. Whenever possible, the group will leverage useful specifications developed by other organizations. The MedBiquitous Technical Advisory Group will offer guidance and technical support for approaches to specific data exchange technologies.
