No changes have been made to the XML schema.

Please let me know if there are any additional comments or feedback as soon as possible. After April 16, we will submit the spec for Public Review. Once the specification is submitted for public review, any substantive changes to the document require an additional public review of 45 days.

Thank you for your input!

Dear Standards Committee,

The MedBiquitous Competency Framework draft specification is ready for your review and comment as part of the MedBiquitous standards development process.

The Competency Framework specification provides a data structure that defines a set of related learning outcomes or competencies and the relationships among those outcomes or competencies (both hierarchical and non-hierarchical). The Competency Framework is intended to be used as the backbone of education and performance management systems, enabling users to search for resources addressing a specific competency and determine where competencies are addressed in the curriculum.

The Competency Framework schema and specification are available for download from:


The Standards Committee is charged with guiding specifications through the process of creating official ANSI standards and voting on the standards. The Standards Committee will work closely with the Competencies working group to address any comments that are raised.

Please gather comments from within your organization and submit those comments through this email list by April 16 (min 30 days).

Following the comment period and our work to address and resolve comments, we will initiate public review and balloting of the specifications.

Thanks to all those Standards Committee members who have participated in the working groups that drafted the specifications, and thanks to all of you for your continued participation in developing common standards to advance healthcare education and competence assessment.

Best regards,
Gabrielle Campbell
