What is RSS?
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds are an easy and efficient way to receive notification when new information is available in your specific area of interest.
How Can I Benefit From RSS?
RSS feeds save time, allowing users to receive notification only when new content is available. Website visitors choose the information they wish to subscribe to and can unsubscribe from any feed at any point.
How Do I Subscribe to Your RSS Feeds?
First, you will need an RSS feed reader (also called a news aggregator); there are a number of RSS readers available. A short list is available at http://www.rss-specifications.com/rss-software.htm
RSS readers are simple programs that display the contents of an RSS feed in an easy-to-read format.
Once you have an RSS reader, simply click an icon below and a new web page will appear. Next, copy the address of the new web page and paste it into your RSS reader. Repeat the steps to subscribe to another feed.
If you don't want to install any software, you can also access our RSS feed through free Web-based RSS readers, including Google Reader, My Yahoo, and MSN.
What Information is Available in Your RSS Feeds?
The "Health Information Articles" feed provides original health articles reviewed by Cleveland Clinic physicians and affiliated staff. The feed is updated twice a week and the topic is changed monthly.
The current topic is Cataract Awareness.
Our "Web Chat Transcripts" feed provides transcripts of online health chats. The Cleveland Clinic Online Health Chat is a service that gives participants an opportunity to chat with our physicians online and ask health questions. This feed will send the chat transcripts to those who don't have time to participate in the chat events.
