  • Personalized Training: Tailored moment-by-moment to meet the diverse needs of health care professionals

  • Integrated environments to blend face-to-face, simulation and adaptive learning
  • Award-winning life-long learning platform

Area9 Lyceum can help enable an interactive learning experience through a range of tools and services - making your health care content exceptionally agile, relevant and actionable for any learner.

Health care around the world is in a period of great transformation to a more outcomes-focused approach. One important element of this paradigm shift toward value-based health is reforming medical education. Area9 Rhapsode™ is the fourth generation learning platform from Area9 Lyceum that adapts content and training to match the needs of each user. This allows for a reduction in training time, a boost in knowledge, as well as skill acquisition, and the ability to build self-awareness. It is designed to work with an individual’s four key competencies that can help them become autonomous and reflective learners -  knowledge, skills, character and meta-cognitive ability.

Area9’s personalized adaptive learning platform is a proven high-impact solution.  In recent years, Area9 teamed up with NEJM Group - the publisher of the New England Journal of Medicine - to develop NEJM Knowledge+, a first-of-its-kind smart technology designed to meet the training and development needs of clinicians.

This award-winning platform adapts to clinician’s learning goals, pace, and knowledge gaps and delivers the information each clinician needs. For time-starved doctors with demanding jobs, the adaptive approach of NEJM Knowledge+ has been shown to be more effective and efficient compared to traditional board certification preparation. NEJM Knowledge+ uses research-proven methods to accelerate proficiency, continuously sharpen skills, and promote lifelong learning.

“We set out to create a truly innovative product that would be relevant and convenient to physicians. Area9, a physician-led company that is an innovator in interactive educational software, asked us to consider them as a partner, not a vendor. We did, and that partnership has been extremely successful.”

  • Chris Lynch, VP for publishing, NEJM group - a division of the Massachusetts medical society

NEJM Knowledge+ has been recognized for its effectiveness in preparing clinicians for board exams, earning CME and MOC, and engaging in lifelong learning.  A recent study showed that NEJM Knowledge+ users in the U.S. (during 2014-2016) passed the ABIM-CE on their first attempt at a significantly higher rate than the national average (95% vs. 89%).
Area9 Lyceum leverages more than 20 years of research to identify the human factors that influence learning, such as when students prepare for exams or health care professionals prepare for continuing medical education. Other key industries include aviation, defense, heavy industry, telecommunications, professional services and higher education.
