MedBiquitous Community Connection: MedBiquitous 2030 Update - April 19
Recorded On: 04/19/2022
In September 2021, the MedBiquitous community put forth the white paper "MedBiquitous 2030: Building the Digital Ecosystem for Health Professions Education."The goals of publishing the white paper and starting the initiative are to help others discover the power that comes from developing an infrastructure that all our learners and clinicians can utilize. Members of the MedBiquitous community have come to appreciate the power of allowing systems to work together to make our lives easier as we train and educate health care providers. It is now time to bring the entire HPE community into the conversation.
Join MedBiquitous Director, Johmarx Patton, as he provides further insights on the initiative and reactions from members of the community on how we might meet the challenges on transitioning health professions and health care delivery education to meet the digital frontier we are all facing.
“MedBiquitous Community Connection” is a series of free one-hour webinars featuring health professions educators and technology innovators from around the globe. “MedBiquitous Community Connection” provides a forum for community experts to share how digital technologies are promoting improvement and better outcomes across the continuum of health professions education. A portion of each webinar will reserve time for a brief Q&A session, allowing attendees the opportunity to dialogue with guest speakers.
