CLEVELAND, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Within3, the market leader in digital collaboration for healthcare and life sciences institutions, in cooperation with the Business Development Institute, producer of conferences and educational programs, presented the third Future of HCP Collaboration Leadership Luncheon. The event, part of a continuing professional educational series, brought together industry executives to explore how they are using innovation and technology to reshape collaboration in healthcare.

The luncheon featured a keynote presentation given by Steven Krein, Co-founder and CEO of StartUp Health, www.startuphealth.com, an academy that helps entrepreneurs build sustainable health and wellness companies. Mr. Krein energized the audience with his presentation, Reimagining Healthcare, sharing some of the entrepreneurial ventures that are transforming our industry. He talked about living in the "Golden Age of Entrepreneurship," a time in which innovators are launching groundbreaking ideas for both patients and providers.

Vibrant roundtable discussions followed Mr. Krein's compelling presentation. An experienced moderator representing a top-10 global pharmaceutical company led each of the four roundtables. Dynamic dialogue ensued as participants discussed how innovation and technology are bringing change to their companies. Moderators guided the discussions by sharing their personal digital collaboration stories, including how they received robust clinical insights, improved their interactions with healthcare professionals, and saved time and money. Each spoke about how they successfully navigated the challenges of bringing something new and different into their large organizations.

Ellynn Decter Szoke, Chief Marketing Officer of Within3, commented, "This was our third Future of HCP Collaboration Leadership Luncheon.  We started the forums based on the belief that the more we communicate and share with each other, the more we learn and the better off we are as an industry. Living in a time of immense change can be daunting, but it can also be empowering as we embrace options never before available. We are very pleased with how engaged the audience was and we hope they left better prepared to become change agents for their organizations."
