American College of Gastroenterology to Revolutionize Scientific Exchange on Within3
Date:10/26/2009

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Gastroenterology today launches the ACG GI Circle at their Annual Scientific Meeting, becoming the first medical association to expand into a year-round Within3 online collaborative community. Meeting attendees, authors and presenters can, for the first time, not only view abstracts, but also actively discuss the latest breakthroughs in clinical gastroenterology during -- and well after -- the San Diego meeting.

"The ACG GI Circle introduced today is a groundbreaking online resource that will help the College and its members advance GI science and enhance GI clinical practice," says Eamonn Quigley, MD, FACG, ACG President. "One of the most innovative features is the ability to upload and share breaking research, journal articles, and poster presentations. We hope this will dramatically shorten the time it takes for emerging science to be reflected in improved patient outcomes."

The ACG GI Circle is an exclusive online community built for and managed by ACG, and powered by Within3 technology. It was designed to foster ongoing scientific discussion and provide dynamic referral and networking, all of which meet the growing need for collaboration among today's healthcare professionals.

As a result, ACG is able to offer its members a secure social network to foster communication and collaboration within the GI specialty. The ACG GI Circle community will enable busy health professionals to keep current on the latest developments and issues in gastroenterology, and to stay connected to each other.

The College invested its time and resources into the development of ACG GI Circle with partnership support from AstraZeneca.

"AstraZeneca is proud to continue its longstanding support of the gastroenterology community by helping bring ACG members together in this unique and creative way," said Douglas Levine, MD, FACG, Executive Director, Clinical Research, AstraZeneca. "We believe this type of interaction helps both the profession and patients."

"Within3 is pleased to work with ACG designing this exclusive online community, the ACG GI Circle," said Within3 CEO Lance Hill. "This community showcases how a medical association can transform an annual meeting into an ongoing, year-round engagement. Enabling ACG's members to conveniently collaborate and leverage each other's collective expertise will result in enhanced scientific discovery and smarter clinical decision making at the patient's bedside."
