Data gets all the headlines, but it is knowledge that makes a difference. Knowledge is what we learn and apply to achieve our goals.


Mobilising Computable Biomedical Knowledge (MCBK) is a global movement founded in 2018 at the University of Michigan, USA. MCBK has a Manifesto and its official journal is Learning Health Systems.

The aim of MCBK is to activate an international community from academia, the sciences, industry and government agencies working together to ensure that computable biomedical knowledge is findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.

The full programme is shown below and topics will include:

  • Emerging standards in clinical knowledge representation
  • Work with NICE on computable guidelines
  • Regulation of computable knowledge in decision support
  • Learning health systems
  • Industry updates
  • Specific UK opportunities to lead the field
