Welcome to RSS

Our RSS feature allows you to easily incorporate headline information from our web sites and to navigate back to our sites for detailed summaries and other features.

Essentially, an RSS file is an XML file with headlines, article summaries, and descriptive meta-data such as title, author, and publication date. That definition can be extended to include other information as well. For example, our Concept file contains a complete inventory of our guideline titles as well as all of the linked UMLS concepts.

Our "What's New" file is essential to anyone who wants to capture our latest summary information. By incorporating our "What's New" file, you will receive links to our latest Tool, Guideline, and Measure summaries, updated on a weekly basis.
