Our learners must answer to many masters: the home institution or employer, certifying boards, accreditors and regulatory agencies. All too often each entity has its own system and requires the learner to input data on their education or practice into the system for that entity. This results in a lot of redundant data entry for the learner. In a world moving to meaningful use of electronic medical records and more “cloud” based services, can we do a better job? What would healthcare education look like if supporting systems were centered around the learner?
