Advancing Value-Based Health Care In a Pandemic – Rapid Response Training Critical for Improving Care and Safety

In this paper, we will discuss the importance of continuing education to equip medical professionals with knowledge and skills to improve patient health across the breadth of populations and a spectrum of diseases. The rapid emergence of COVID-19 as a pandemic, affecting millions around the globe, further highlights this need.

In December 2020 the Deloitte UK Centre for Health Solutions published their final report in the series: ‘The future unmasked – Predicting the future of healthcare and life sciences in 2025’. Amongst other things the report considers how the who, what and where of work will change by 2025. The prediction about AI technology enabled lifelong learning on page 16 make for interesting reading. Also see page 18 which cites recent Area9 Lyceum health education initiatives with a range of partners and recently validated academic research on the efficacy of our technology as supporting evidence.

Pharma and Med Tech: Innovations and Complexity – Raising the Stakes for Professional Training

Innovations in pharmaceutical and medical technology—gene therapies, stem-cell treatments, and other cutting-edge therapeutic approaches—demand intense training, both inside and outside the company.

Training and education for sales teams and medical affairs personnel, as well as for doctors, nurses, and other clinicians, must be highly effective in increasing competence, as well as efficient in terms of time. Adaptive learning offers a proven approach.

From prestigious groups like NEJM Group (publisher of the world renowned New England Journal of Medicine) and the American Association of Clinical Chemistry, to healthcare companies like Coloplast, to pharmaceutical companies like Abbvie, businesses across healthcare trust Area9 Lyceum to provide optimized training in support of life-or-death decision making.

Whether it is sales training in a compliance environment, or Continuing Medical Education and preparation for Board Certification, the Area9 Lyceum adaptive approach is ideally suited to build proficiency and confidence quickly in a highly engaging way.

Airway Manager on the NEJM Knowledge+ platform brings you world class education with leading-edge adaptive learning technology.

Area9 Lyceum teamed up with NEJM Group, and AMEC – the leading authority in airway management education to provide the newest educational experience for physicians and clinicians who encounter emergency airways.

Customer Case Studies

The New England Journal Of Medicine

The New England Journal Of Medicine is the most widely read, cited, and influential general medical periodical in the world. NEJM Group and Area9 Learning partnered in February 2013 to create the first-of-its-kind platform that adapts to clinicians’ learning goals, pace and knowledge gaps to deliver the information they need.

Hear from Jeffrey M Drazen, MD, Editor-in-chief, NEJM Group, and physicians on how Area9’s technology makes a difference to their lives, via the NEJM Knowledge+ platform.


When the American Association of Clinical Chemistry, a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to better health through laboratory medicine, wanted to help laboratory medicine experts expand their knowledge and enhance their ability to find answers to challenging patient health problems, it turned to Area9 and NEJM Group.

"On the more positive side of it, this learning resource, overall, is well put together and very useful as a preparation material for the board exam in Clinical Biochemical Genetics by the ABMGG. I just finished and passed my board exam and I found that this and the previous learning modules have covered the majority of the board exam topics and MCQs in the clinical and laboratory areas of this subspecialty. I would highly recommend these IEM learning modules to those who are going to sit for the board exam in this specialty (lab and MDs). In fact, I have recommended it to several fellows who are now waiting for the prime time of these learning modules."
