NAMEC Recognizes ACHL, ArcheMedX and Partners With 2017 ‘Best Practice in Collaboration Among CME Stakeholders’ Award

ACHL, Pro-ficiency, Simumetrix and ArcheMedX were recognized ​​for collaboration on The Evolution of Therapies for NSCLC: Navigating New Therapies & Counseling Patients in Clinical Decisions

The Academy of Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL), Pro-ficiencySimumetrix and ArcheMedX have been recognized by The National Association of Medical Education Companies (NAMEC) for their innovative collaboration on The Evolution of Therapies for NSCLC: Navigating New Therapies & Counseling Patients in Clinical DecisionsThe collaborative initiative, which was supported by an educational grant from Genentech, was designed to disseminate professional and patient education in the most comprehensive, measurable and engaging way possible.

The clinician education was developed by ACHL, produced in collaboration with Simumetrix, and then designed, delivered and assessed within the ArcheViewer, an award-winning digital learning and insights platform pioneered by ArcheMedX. The patient education was delivered via Pro-ficiency’s ProPatient platform, designed to help bridge the communication gap between clinicians and patients while providing an educational resource developed specifically for the patient and/or caregiver. The initiative launched on June 30, 2016, and was available for CME credit through June 30, 2017.

“Leveraging the ArcheMedX platform enabled ACHL to deliver a more engaging and impactful educational experience for each clinician learner,” said Lisa Keckich, executive director at ACHL. “By utilizing the ArcheViewer and working closely with the ArcheMedX team, we were able to ensure that content was dynamic and agile and that lessons drove learning, increased competency and improved clinician performance. ”Since launching the educational initiative, thousands of lung cancer clinicians and patients have enhanced their personalized approaches to care and simplified important challenges related to diagnosis and treatment. Data from the initiative also demonstrated that patients better understood their disease and felt more confident to self-advocate with their clinical care team. These results would not have been possible without all parties successfully collaborating from conceptualization through launch.
