Quick Notes about NEJM Accounts

1. Employees and physicians do not have to pay additional fees to access NEJM when their accounts have been paired with our institutional subscription.

2. For the accounts to be recognized under the institutional subscription, they need to register on a hospital computer with IntraLee access. These will be hospital computers that require a lee health sign-in or thin clients marked with EPIC. If access via CITRIX Access Gateway is available, they may use Internet Explorer within the CITRIX environment. 

3. The pairing of the personal account lasts 180 days. After this period, users will need to sign in again from within the hospital’s network (or CITRIX) to receive a 180-day extension. 

4. If a user subscribes to an electronic table of contents (eTOC) and the institutional pairing expires, they will still receive the eTOC, but the links to the articles will not grant full-text access. 

5. To continue having full-text access via the eTOCs, users will need to pair their accounts again, as described in point 2. NEJM will reflect the change in the next scheduled eTOC. Until then, users can visit to access the article directly. 

6. If the end-user does not have a personal account or has not subscribed to an eTOC and needs remote access to NEJM before visiting a Lee Health campus, they still have the option of using OpenAthens.
