Healthcare Services Newsfeed 3/30-4/5
To determine the Top 20 healthcare stories over the past 7-days (3/30/1/-4/5/18) we focused on searching for news articles about the topics provided; for example, freestanding ERs, acquisitions made in health care in last week; as well as specific companies like United Healthcare or Kaiser Permanente.
Since no quantitative criteria was provided to identify the Top 20 stories from the search results, we used the following criteria to help us determine the most significant and important stories from the past week:
— Research related to a topic of specific interest to the client
— Article is about one or more of the companies that interests the client — for example Kaiser Permanente
Of the Top 20 news articles from the past week, many of them were about the implementation or development of EHR systems, but there were also several articles on acquisitions as well as the investments being made to build new ER’s. These news articles are summarized in the spreadsheet with a story title, a summary of the story and a link to the original source.
