What are RSS feeds?
RSS is best known as Really Simple Syndication. It represents an easy and free way to get the latest Healthcare Product Alerts that you want whenever it is updated, even if you are not on the ecri.org Web site. You are able to choose which types of Alerts that what you want to track and how often you want to be updated.
To use RSS, you will need to use a RSS reader (News Reader) which is a type of program that provides a user interface to the feeds you select. There are a variety of RSS Readers available. ECRI Institute's RSS feeds for Healthcare Product Alerts should work well with any available feed reader that uses the standard XML-based format for RSS.
