PHILADELPHIA, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

New ThrombosisClinic.com will be the first informatics-powered, connected
learning environment for continuing education

Elsevier's Office of Continuing Medical Education (EOCME) announced today that
it is extending its existing collaboration with AcademicCME and ArcheMedX to
re-launch the ThrombosisClinic.com website. The ArcheMedX connected learning
platform will power the new site to create a collaborative learning experience
for interdisciplinary teams of clinicians.

"The all-new, ThrombosisClinic.com will be a critical resource designed to
reduce mortality and improve outcomes for patients with thromboembolic disease
by providing clinicians with a more effective and more efficient lifelong
learning solution," said Sandy Breslow, Director of the EOCME. The new site
provides a one-of-a-kind educational resource for the entire interdisciplinary
clinical team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician
assistants, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare providers dedicated to
thrombosis prevention, treatment and management.

By delivering advanced education to the complete clinical team including
underserved clinical areas such as dentistry, orthopedics, and OB/GYN,
"ThrombosisClinic.com will provide clinicians from primary care to intensive
care access to evidence-based strategies that can be immediately employed in
practice," said Dr. Timothy Hayes, President of AcademicCME.

The site will centralize the clinician's natural learning actions and simplify
their lifelong learning journey. In an age when clinicians face a daily
challenge to stay current with new and emerging best practices, the all-new
ThrombosisClinic.com will introduce resources and an innovative set of
connected learning tools that clinicians need to streamline their information
gathering and support practical, lifelong learning.

Recent data suggest that the majority of clinicians are using new social
technologies for the express purpose of lifelong learning and professional
development. As a result, Brian S. McGowan, PhD, Co-Founder & Chief Learning
Officer of ArcheMedX, said, "A key innovation of the all-new
ThrombosisClinic.com site is the launch of a series of curriculum-based
"Virtual Courses" designed to more effectively educate interdisciplinary teams
as they participate in collaborative learning activities." Small, trusted
cohorts of learners will engage with faculty and assist each other in
completing educational objectives throughout the virtual courses and
collaborative learning environment.

Powered by the ArcheMedX Connected Learning Platform, the site will seamlessly
connect the virtual courses and new forms of educational content to Elsevier's
comprehensive archives of clinical publications, making it simple for
clinicians to access, review, share, and apply related educational content to
clinical practice. Access to the new Virtual Courses, collaborative learning
tools, and other educational activities on ThrombosisClinic.com will be
available for registered learners beginning in the second half of 2013.

connected learning tools are being leveraged, please contact Sandy Breslow
Director, Elsevier's Office of CME, or Timothy Hayes , MD, PhD, President of
