Together.Health is an organization that uses the power of community to accelerate change in healthcare. When the group isn’t hosting fireside chats and panels at some of the world’s biggest healthcare conferences, they’re busy working behind the scenes to develop standards, identify resources, and champion solutions that promise to move the entire industry forward.

This past week, I headed up to Philly with our CEO Jose Ignacio Rasco. We were proud to sponsor the eyeforpharma Philadelphia conference and lead a discussion for some of the world’s most talented pharmaceutical marketing executives on “What’s in a Name?” – why the name (and the domain name) you choose matters.
