New aggregated RSS feed of health informatics launched

We know that many people are overwhelmed in trying to keep up with the latest news in their field, let alone trying to read a bit more widely. RSS feeds are one useful way that many people have tried to manage the information overload (see, for example, Bill Perry’s recent presentation >>>) – but even they can be overwhelming once you subscribe to more than a few.

We are exploring ways in which IMIA can provide benefit to its members by using Web 2.0 tools to help to manage this overload, and have launched the first of our experimental aggregated RSS feeds. You can find it on the ‘News from RSS feeds’ page (above), or the short version in the sidebar (IMIA RSS bundle).

We will be adding to, or refining, the list of feeds used in this bundle, and exploring the development of new feeds using some of the other tools available, as well as looking at methods for filtering news items.

We welcome your feedback (to news[at]imia-services.org) on this new service, and on suggestions of your favourite or recommended feeds.
