Launch of First Year-Round Annual Scientific Medical Meeting Announced at Health 2.0
Date:10/12/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Within3, the leading developer of secure, private online communities for health and life sciences institutions, today announced that the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) will become the first medical society to extend its Annual Scientific Meeting to a year-round forum by creating a Within3 online collaborative community for its 11,000 members.

ACG will launch the ACG GI Circle, an exclusive online community developed for and managed by ACG on Within3, later this month.

Rather than limiting active discussion of sessions and posters to the meeting's short duration, ACG Annual Scientific Meeting attendees, authors and presenters will, for the first time, be able to continue discussions of advances in gastroenterology online after the meeting ends. As well, they can engage with other experts on clinical challenges.

The announcement was made at the Health 2.0 meeting in San Francisco, where Within3 CEO Lance Hill will also speak October 7 at 11:00 am about the need for empowering active collaboration among healthcare providers. Such collaborative communities working in a secure environment are instrumental in advancing medical science and improving patient care.

"There is a great need for purposeful collaboration among healthcare providers to speed new therapies to market and disseminate best practices in clinical delivery," Hill said. "Within3 communities provide the three key ingredients for active medical collaborations: built-in regulatory safeguards for liability protection, a best-of-breed social technology platform for ease of collaboration, and a trusted private community whose participants and credentials are known."

Within3's healthcare communities will also be showcased at Booth #23-24.

Oracle chooses Within3 as first healthcare application of Beehive

Within3 also disclosed today that it has been chosen by Oracle for the first healthcare application for Beehive, Oracle's Health 2.0 collaboration platform for the delivery of real-time intelligence at the point of care.
