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.

  Data Definitions

research image

Recent News: The twenty most recent news items for this Topic / Solution Partner / Health System / Payer / Capital Firm (hereafter Entity), with average or better quality score. The Entity may be mentioned within the story, but not be the primary focus of the item. Quality is determined via algorithm and includes a news source ranking as well as placement of the Entity within the news item.

Linked News: Similar to the above, but filtered to only those news items for a which a Label can be displayed to illustrate the specific news connections between this and other Entities. For example, a news item on the topic of Telehealth may also include mention of a specific telehealth Solution Partner. A news item for a revenue cycle management Solution Partner may include mention of a particular Health System where a contract was announced (see Connections Tab).

High Score: The twenty most recent high-scoring news items available. Here, the Entity is more likely to be the focus of, or feature prominently in the news item. Medium-quality news may be supplemented to fill out the container when necessary. Depending on the frequency of news generated for a particular Entity, its news summary may represent a few days or a few months’ activity. Where possible, a Label is displayed that illustrates the specific connections between this record and others.

Top News Sources: A ranked list of the top Authoritative Sources for each Entity. Authoritative Sources are well-known news outlets and PR vehicles, rather than local news outlets which may merely reprint press releases. There are currently 100+ Authoritative (out of 5,000+) unique healthcare news sources in inventory, and this list is updated weekly.

Mirrored Topics: Topics are mirrored where a user searching news for one term, would expect similar results for the other term in this relationship, i.e., ‘EHR’ and ‘Electronic Health Record.’ In other cases, the mirrored Topics are different terms but are now used interchangeably in healthcare news, such as with ‘Telehealth’ and ‘Virtual Care.’ High-scoring news for one Topic will be mapped to its mirror(s) so that it can be found in searches there as well. Solution Partners linked to one Topic/Capability will also be connected to their mirror(s).

Related Topics: A subjective mapping of other topics that might be of interest. Your suggestions are welcome.

  • Solution Partners: Partners with this specific Topic/Capability.

  • See Also: Related Topics of interest. Your suggestions are welcome.

..for Solution Partners

  • Capabilities/Topics: Solution Partners will often have links to multiple Topics, or Capabilities, rather than being boxed into a single arbitrary classification - a differentiator for this dataset. Note: This classification is driven as much by news content as from the vendor’s self-description, website or press releases, i.e., if the news media repeatedly refers to a Solution Partner as an RCM provider, it will likely have that classification in addition to any Capabilities claimed by the vendor.
  • Financing: Links to Capital Firms with announced funding events for this Partner (not a primary focus).
  • Provider Implementations: Links to Health Systems or Hospitals with an announced partnership of some sort.
  • Payer Implementations: Links to Payer Organizations with an announced partnership of some sort.
  • See Also: Links to potential competitors for this Solution Partner, based on shared Capabilities (limit 10).

..for Health Systems

  • Interests: Direct interests (Topics) for this Health System, based on published news, i.e., a Health System that announces a Precision Medicine initiative, etc.
  • Inferred Interests: Inferred interests based upon the Partner relationship graph - contracting with a Telehealth provider infers an interest in Telehealth and Virtual Care, etc.
  • Solution Partners: Links to Solution Partners with an announced partnership of some sort.

..for Payer Organizations

  • Interests: Direct interests (Topics) for this Payer Organization, based on published news, i.e., a Payer that announces a Wellness initiative, etc.
