Convey is a new service of the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) that delivers a centralized, consistent, and complete financial interest disclosure system. Researchers, authors, faculty and medical practitioners spend countless hours filling out and submitting financial interest disclosures. Convey solves this problem by eliminating the need for individuals to re-enter their data each time they need to disclose to a different organization. As a global, user-controlled and interactive system, Convey can transmit the individual financial interest data to any participating organization or system. Medbiquitous has played a key role in helping create Convey’s capability of interoperability with other systems and it's ability to be technology/system agnostic when it comes to data transmissions. AAMC engaged Medbiquitous in 2014 to help create a standard data set and a standard data format in order to meet the needs of the COI programs in the academic medicine world, nationally. In a few months, Medbiquitous brought together subject matter experts from across various sectors including academic medical centers, COI software vendors, CME providers, event management professionals, researchers, medical practitioners, etc. to put forth a data standard that could successfully help address the data needs of this industry and assisted this industry in taking the first step towards data standardization. As part of the Innovation Demonstration, the Convey team will show you exactly how Convey works.
