The Surgeon Will Skype You Now
The surgeon, who has spent 15 minutes gently tearing through tissue, suddenly pauses to gesture ever-so-slightly with his tiny scissors. "Do you see what's on this side? That's nerves." He moves the instrument a few millimeters to the right. "And on this one? That's cancer."

Innovation Through Collaboration | INSEAD Knowledge
Collaboration now is vital even in high competitive healthcare industry:
"But all too often, these collaborations are dogged by a rash of challenges and culture clashes – between for-profit pharma and academia, between corporate cultures, between established institutions and nimble startups, and a financial sector more attuned to funding therapies in late-stage clinical trials. A lack of openness and trust working with outside actors in general, and misunderstandings across national cultures also come into play."

Collaborative Innovation: The Cure for Pharma's Innovation Affliction? | LinkedIn
Notably the healthcare and pharma branch that until now was always "closed shop minded" starts to rethink innovation:
"Reaching out and collaborating in a hub and spoke system is nothing new to the pharmaceutical industry but thanks to ubiquitous and pervasive connectivity there are more spokes and fewer hubs these days. This not only levels the playing field for small biotech companies but also creates diseconomies of scale for behemoth corporations that carry the weight of extensive overhead. InnoCentive, the open innovation company that connects searchers and solvers to create innovative solutions was born out of the challenges of Eli Lilly faced in the late 1990’s when their product pipeline dried up."
