Registration is now open for our upcoming webinar "MedBiquitous Orientation" on Tuesday, Sept. 14, from 12-1pm ET, featuring the Director of MedBiquitous, Johmarx Patton, MD, MHI.
Are you interested in learning more about MedBiquitous? Join us for our MedBiquitous orientation on Sept. 14, where we will share an overview of the MedBiquitous program, its history, and the vision for the future being created by the Director, Steering Committee, and the community.
MedBiquitous, the data standards program of the AAMC, establishes a common language, understood by both people and machines, that enables data and resource-sharing across organizations in health professions education and credentialing. This common language creates an infrastructure that supports education administration, quality improvement, research, and lifelong learning.
Dr. Johmarx Patton, Director of MedBiquitous, will provide a structured walkthrough of the basics of MedBiquitous during this presentation. There will be ample time for questions and answers so that members of the health professions education and credentialing community at large can learn more about what MedBiquitous can do for them and their organization, as well as how they can contribute to MedBiquitous standards development.
Johmarx Patton, MD, MHI, started his life and career in Michigan. Born and raised in Detroit, he received his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Michigan before becoming the first graduate of their Master of Health Informatics program. From there, Dr. Patton began a career in education informatics and learning technologies in support of health professions education.
Creating a team to support the education mission at the University of Michigan Medical School, Dr. Patton served as the bridge between undergraduate medical education and information technology to ensure that the needs of the ever-evolving curriculum were met. Being involved with the AMA, AAMC and MedBiquitous at the national level on projects primarily related to lifelong learning and competency-based education, Dr. Patton has focused his career on the impact of the learner on the healthcare system, and its reciprocal effects, towards the vision of a learning healthcare system. As the Director of MedBiquitous after its transition to the AAMC, Dr. Patton continues his commitment to the development of digital credentials and lifelong learning and employment records for clinicians; capabilities for the exchange of curriculum structure and content between the health professions; and improved access to data locally and nationally for continuous quality improvement and other analytics that will empower learners, educators and administrators.
