September 2006 To create a shared online bank of VPs, adapted for multicultural, multilingual use: for the improved quality and efficiency of healthcare education across the EU e lectronic Vi rtual P atients Round 1: 2005…62% Round 2: 2006…89% - Pass! Second highest result from all of the 2006 eContentPlus project proposals
September 2006 eViP
Implement common technical standards for VPs and partner software systems, using the MedBiquitous VP specification
Collate VPs from partners’ existing collections and select cases for repurposing and enriching to local educational needs.
Adapt a subset of VPs for other healthcare disciplines
Restructure content to standards-compliant structure and metadata (using MedBiquitous Healthcare LOM ) including cultural and language metadata of the partners (English, German, Dutch, Swedish, Polish, Romanian) and IMS content packaging.
September 2006 eViP
Enrich the content of the repurposed VPs with the addition of supporting resources e.g. supporting clinical science resources, clinical skills videos etc.
Share enriched VPs with the wider EU community through an online referatory.
Provide access to VPs for non-partners through an open source player.
Evaluate how the eViP VPs meet the individual needs of the project partners and the wider community.
Project outline continued
September 2006 eViP
Share templates and tools within the EC community for the easy creation of new VPs.
Disseminate best practice guidelines and support tools for creating and sharing VPs
Embed a sustainable model for the storage and retrieval of VPs beyond the lifetime of the 3-year project

September 2006 eViP eViP and MedBiquitous
All Project members signed up to MedBiquitous, using MedBiquitous Virtual Patient specification and Healthcare LOM for metadata
Major opportunity to test, develop and embed the MVP specification in an international setting
Set up to promote local interest in common technical standards for VPs (in the first instance)
Permits other European partners to join the eVIP group by another route
Enabling Collaboration for Healthcare Education. Mission: To advance healthcare education through technology standards that promote professional competence, collaboration, and better patient care.
