ArcheMedX and Imedex Announce Collaboration to Power the Imedex e-Learning Center
The ArcheMedX connected learning platform will simplify clinician learning across the more than 40,000 online educational experiences Imedex delivers each year.
Orlando, FL (January 16th, 2014) ‐ ArcheMedX and Imedex announced a partnership and agreement today to deliver innovative, continuing medical education (CME) programs powered by the ArcheMedX Learning Architecture, an informatics-driven, connected learning platform. By powering the Imedex e-Learning Center (elc.imedex.com), ArcheMedX will enable Imedex to simplify and improve clinician learning across the more than 40,000 online educational experiences Imedex supports annually.
“The entire Imedex team is delighted to partner with ArcheMedX and believe that delivering our high quality education through the ArcheMedX platform will provide an even more engaging and impactful learning experience. By working together we will drive increased knowledge change among the thousands of clinicians who visit our e-Learning Center each month,” commented Ray Hall, VP, Marketing & Support Services at Imedex.
In an age when clinicians face a daily challenge to stay up to date with new and emerging best practices, the Imedex e-Learning Center will deliver educational content (audio/video, slides, cases, audio) within the ArcheViewer, an informatics powered e-learning architecture that provides a structured set of learning tools for each clinician. As Ray Hall explains, “The ArcheViewer will connect our high quality content and programs together in more innovative and structured ways and provide the Imedex team new and actionable insight into the effectiveness of our learning programs. “
The ArcheViewer will empower learners visiting the Imedex e-Learning Center to take their natural learning actions around content offered in the e-Learning Center by creating and archiving notes synchronized to the relevant moment in the lesson, setting enduring reminders in accordance with spaced-learning theory, and searching related resources and tools that have been indexed for rapid retrieval. In real-time, Imedex will be able to analyze how learners engage in various lessons powered by the ArcheViewer, enabling Imedex to utilize the lesson tools within the ArcheViewer to update content on the fly and nudge individual learners to engage more actively or to focus on their subject matter weaknesses.
Dr. Brian S. McGowan, Chief Learning Officer at ArcheMedX commented, “In partnering with the organization that pioneered the Educational Impact Score (EIS), we know that Imedex understands how critical it is to structure learning, both in terms of educational experience and learning analysis.” Dr. McGowan adds, “For nearly 30 years Imedex has been leading and innovating how medical education is delivered, now through this partnership they are empowering their community with a structured learning experience unlike anything that has been offered before.”
Access to the new ArcheViewer powered programs will begin in early 2014 for Imedex registered learners.
