Project: A Healthcare IT Research Tool

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

Financing events are only a small part of the picture. Health Systems, Payers, Capital Firms and other stakeholders have critical questions such as:

  • What is happening within a particular healthcare topic?
  • What new players are in this space?
  • What vendor 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 solution partner.

News items are selected via search algorithm and then scored across several factors, including the perceived quality of the source. Depending on the frequency of news generated for a particular item, its news summary may represent a few days or a few months’ activity.

Links between Topics, Solution Partners, Health Systems, Payer Organizations and Capital Firms are determined through manual review as well as via algorithm. As connections between entities are established, ‘serendipitous exploration’ will become possible across data elements.

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. This site is updated weekly, and your comments are welcome.
