Using RSS Feeds as a Regulatory Intelligence Tool: The (Updated List of) Feeds you Need to Follow

Which websites should regulatory professionals be reading, and how should they be reading them?

For regulatory professionals—and especially those involved in regulatory intelligence—staying current with the latest information is a constant struggle. And while each professional's list of required reading sources may differ significantly, all regulatory professionals could stand to benefit from taking advantage of a technology platform known as RSS (Really Simple Syndication).

The RSS platform is similar in many respects to the XML platform used to submit applications electronically to most regulatory agencies, and is actually based on the same XML architecture. Each website using RSS pushes out their latest information in a standardized format, allowing users to receive the latest news in their email inboxes or using online tools.

The appeal is relatively simple: Instead of needing to physically go to the web address of each website a professional wishes to visit (i.e. a "pull" method of consumption), RSS feeds "push" the latest news out, allowing a user to simply monitor a single location (known as an RSS "reader" or "aggregator") to find all of the latest news from the websites they wish to follow.

2014 RAPS - RegIntelligenceWhile most email services support RSS feeds, including Microsoft Outlook, web-based platforms often provide an array of services not found in email-based versions. For example, the RSS service Feedly is a web-based RSS reader which allows users to group RSS feeds based on their own preferences. A user might, for example, group together all their most important feeds to allow for quicker information triage each day. Another benefit is Feedly's mobile app, which allows users to read the latest stories when away from the office. The service also allows integrationwith many web-based tools like Evernote.

Other RSS readers include Newsblur, Digg Reader, The Old Reader and FeedDemon.
