  1. Provide a brief explanation of the need for the project:

The use of outcome and competency frameworks is a growing part of healthcare education and maintenance of certification. Currently, there is no standard way to represent these frameworks, and therefore no easy way to import/export competency frameworks across systems.

  1. Identify the stakeholders (e.g., telecom, consumer, medical, environmental, etc.) likely to be directly impacted by the standard:

Medical schools, hospitals, certifying boards, licensing boards, professional associations, continuing education providers, information technology vendors, accreditation organizations, healthcare professionals.

  1. This PINS revises a previous PINS submittal:


Note: A revised PINS is only required if the previously identified stakeholders have changed substantively (see item 6 on this form.).

  1. Description of Contents of Standard: (Provide a one paragraph description, not to exceed 500 characters.)

Competency Framework leverages the Healthcare Learning Object Metadata and may reference external competency definitions of different formats. It contains metadata about the framework as well as relationships (hierarchical and non-hierarchical) among competency objects and existing frameworks that comprise the competency framework.
