Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014

ArcheMedX announced today, in collaboration with Elsevier’s Office of Continuing Medical Education (EOCME) and AcademicCME, the launch of two innovative continuing medical education (CME) programs powered by the ArcheViewer, a data-driven, e-learning architecture. These new educational programs deliver a more interactive learning experience around recent science, clinical trial data, and best practices when creating individualized treatment plans for patients diagnosed with Overactive Bladder Disease or Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

The launch of these educational series by AcademicCME, ArcheMedX, and Elsevier, follows the success of their first collaboration, “Improving Patient Outcomes in Multiple Sclerosis.” Since launching in September 2013, this innovative e-learning initiative continues to demonstrate meaningful and significant improvement in learning and competence among the clinicians who participate in the four-part mini-curriculum.

“The success of our first educational series in partnership with AcademicCME and ArcheMedX demonstrated how we can enhance the continuing education the CME community offers to healthcare providers throughout the US and abroad, and we are thrilled to now support the lifelong learning of oncologists and urologists in increasingly effective and efficient ways,” commented Sandy Breslow, Director of the EOCME.

According to learning outcomes data released earlier this year, paired analysis of pre- and post-lesson assessment data shows that learners participating in the Multiple Sclerosis education consistently and repeatedly improved learning, competency, and performance including a 68% increase in knowledge change between their pre-test and the first time they attempted their post-test.

As Dr. Timothy Hayes, President of AcademicCME, explains, “Learners continue to look to Elsevier’s Office of Continuing Medical Education for world-class CME that simplifies lifelong learning and, with the proven success of the ArcheViewer, we believe that the rapidly changing fields of Oncology and Urology are a natural next step for the more interactive and engaging educational experience we are delivering together.”

Clinicians who participate in either educational series will engage in content developed by world-class faculty and leverage a structured set of learning tools (powered by the ArcheViewer) that enable each learner to:

  •     archive relevant lessons to their personal ‘learning stream’;
  •     take and synchronize notes at any moment during the lesson;
  •     set critical reminders that prompt the learners to reflect and apply what they have learned over time,
  •     search through and review resources (i.e., articles, studies, tools) selected by faculty; and,
  •     submit questions directly to faculty

Access to these two new initiatives, “Emerging Science and Therapies in Lung Cancers” (for Oncologists) and “Strategies to Improve Outcomes in Patients with Overactive Bladder” (for Primary Care Physicians) is now available for Elsevier’s registered learners.
