Rationale: A flood of news is being generated on the U.S. healthcare system, coming from dozens of established news sources and hundreds of blogs. Thousands of stories appear each day, making it difficult to get a real sense of what is happening in a particular focus area, let alone identify quality content for review.

Health systems, payers, capital firms and other stakeholders have critical questions such as: (1) what is happening within a particular healthcare topic? (2) what new players are in this space? and (3) what deals, installations and partnerships have occurred?

The goal of this tool is to provide assistance to research efforts within the healthcare IT field, reducing analysis load while providing a simple method to follow an emerging healthcare topic or player.

Methodology: News items are selected via a search algorithm and then scored across several factors, including the perceived quality of the source. Depending on the frequency of news for a particular topic, its news summary may represent a few days, or a few months activity. Links to other entities are determined through manual review as well as via algorithm.

Although some direct testing occurs, note that with the incoming volume of data (5,000 news items per day) it would be infeasible to sample each record, and the odd categorization error is likely. Finally, your comments are welcome.
