MedBiquitous Standards make it possible to track healthcare specialty certification, licensure, training, education, and certification activities across organizations in a standardized fashion. This in turn allows for faster credentialing of professionals and faster availability of accurate data to the public. It also accelerates technical development, saving money in the process. MedBiquitous standards have supported the credentialing of 800,000 certified MDs & DOs and helped certifying boards and others realize significant savings.
The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) uses MedBiquitous standards to track progress of certified physicians towards completing the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirement for Performance in Practice. When a pediatrician completes an approved activity provided by an organization using MedBiquitous standards, information about his or her completion is sent to the ABP electronically. The ABP records that data and updates the physician’s MOC portfolio to indicate that the Performance in Practice requirement has been met.
MedBiquitous has the following standards, specifications, and information related to Achievements and Credentials:
