Get Involved
The Pivio system is designed to provide medical
students and physicians with a platform to track
and document their competency across the span
of medical school education, training and
professional practice.
System will enable storage and/or transfer of
data created throughout an academic and
professional career.
It will enable users to share data with credential
verification organizations and others at the
individual’s control.
Motivate physicians towards continuous
improvement by:
◦ Increasing awareness of performance against goals
◦ Assist in managing learning plans for growth as a
◦ Making profiling their own practice easier, including
benchmarking against available standards, to
identify needs for continued learning and
◦ Matching identified needs to available resources for
performance improvement
Make credentialing easier and more
Allow physicians to release customized
practice profiles for their patients
Faster access to verified data in support of
self-reported data
Pivio is a combination of the word pivot and an
abstraction of the Latin word “via” meaning ‘way’,
or ‘path’.
The name conveys versatility and a guide in the
life-long progression of users as they journey
through their academic and professional careers.
The tagline (Manage your records. Master your
career.) is a functional description of the product
and illustrates how it can assist users with being
in control of their information and growth.
Platform contract signed. Development of Pivio
system has begun.

In pilot/launch users will be able to import
information from ACGME case logs
On April 1st, AAMC/NBME hosted a Clinical
Thought Leaders discussion on case logs
Should we be considering development of a
standard for case logs?
Accelerated a competency standard to enable easy
management of competency information across
◦ A standards research report is now available
◦ Development of the XML specification and web
service to advance lifelong learning and
continuous improvement is underway
Continuing work with MedBiquitous to assess the
ability to include the Educational Trajectory,
Professional Profile, and other standards
Working with PESC to create a more widely used
electronic portfolio standard and include support for
this standard in future versions of the Pivio system
Centered around data flow across institutions by
creating similarities across data fields
Development of these standards will allow Pivio to
connect with other systems/tools to pre-populate
certain data more efficiently
A draft standard should be presented in May at the
PESC Data Summit
Competency tracking
Reflection and learning plan templates
Benchmarking/Comparative tools
Learning pathways and education/program
Integration with other AAMC/NBME programs
Development of additional features for
physicians and allied health professionals
What else should be on our radar?
Medical students, residents, faculty and program
staff have participated
Topics include marketing, pricing,
features/functionality, and CV/Resume templates
Focus groups will continue to be utilized to assist
the team in future development and planning of
the Pivio system
