Use Data to Drive Improvement
MedBiquitous standards let you connect what you’re teaching to international frameworks. MedBiquitous standards allow you to bring together curriculum data for benchmarking or use the data to drive accreditation and improvement.
The Association of American Medical Colleges is using MedBiquitous standards to collect curriculum data from medical schools in the US and Canada. In 2014, they collected curriculum data from 120 medical schools. Now they have a rich source of data for reports on medical school curricula. They also plan to use the data to support medical schools’ preparation for accreditation.
MedBiquitous standards also let accreditors collect continuing education (CE) data using a common language. MedBiquitous standards also enable the collection of data on CE that supports specific FDA Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS).
The Accreditation Council for Medical Education (ACCME) uses MedBiquitous standards in its Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) to collect program and activity data from accredited continuing medical education providers. In addition, the standard has been used by accreditors of continuing education and a consortium of extended-release and long-acting (ER/LA) opioid analgesics companies to bring together data about REMS-compliant CE programs from across the health professions.
