The AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium is developing an integrated clinical and educational platform for teaching and learning that would support a competency-based educational pathway in medical school. Panel members from four of the 11 consortium schools will lead a discussion of informatics approaches undertaken by the consortium to achieve this goal. Such approaches include 1) interactive portfolios with real time aggregate data of group and individual performances, 2) a cloned HER and health system data platform to support an ongoing interactive ‘virtual patient and health system database,' 3) a Learning Management System including synchronous and asynchronous learning components that would interface with the virtual database, and 4) a mobile platform that could support access of the database and LMS at the bedside and elsewhere. After a brief presentation from members of the consortium, audience participants will interact with panel members to brainstorm informatics and technology infrastructure to apply at one's home institutions. Opportunities to collaborate with existing consortium institution projects will be available.
