Our Collective Response to COVID-19

by Joel Selzer Mar 26 , 2020 4 min read

We are all finding ways personally and professionally to meet the challenge posed by COVID-19. 

Earlier this month, as the threat of COVID-19 was becoming increasingly clear, we at ArcheMedX took decisive action to protect our employees, their families, and our business partners by freezing all travel, ensuring we could work safely and securely from home, and investing in our data infrastructure to enhance business continuity.  These early decisions have served as a stabilizing force during the crisis, and like many other organizations, they have enabled the ArcheMedX team to focus its time and attention on collectively serving the larger community.

For example:

  • We quickly joined with thousands of business leaders to actively support the #stopthespread and #flattenthecurve national movement and led local efforts in our hometown of Charlottesville, VA, to unite CvilleBioHub, the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council, and the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce to launch #FlattenTheCurveCville and mobilize local forces in the fight against COVID-19
  • Several members of our team are donating their personal time and energy to assist local health systems in responding to critical shortages of personal protective equipment and assisting national healthcare and life science organizations in assessing how they can best adapt their educational initiatives and work practices in this new age of social distancing and restricted travel.
  • We have also collaborated with Johns Hopkins University, DKBMed, the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education, and FreeCME to develop and distribute our first COVID-19 education and training experience to frontline healthcare workers free of charge (see below).

The educational activity, COVID-19: Keeping Up With A Moving Target, is powered by the ArcheMedx platform and was developed in collaboration with Dr. Paul Auwataerter, Clinical Director, Divisions of Infectious Diseases at Johns Hopkins University, DKBMed, the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education, and FreeCME.

Please note: The initial presentation was recorded on March 18th and the intention is to provide weekly updates to this educational activity starting the week of March 30th. 

Day in and day out, our mission at ArcheMedX is not merely to improve online learning and generate actionable insights, but to support the healthcare and life science industries in the vital work of protecting life and advancing wellness.

To that end, we are offering free use of the ArcheMedX platform to deliver COVID-19 education and training initiatives to those on the front lines. This offer is available to any healthcare or life science organization that needs to provide critical information to clinicians or employees across the globe.

Please contact the ArcheMedX team to explore how we can work together to #stopthespread and #flattenthecurve.
