There are few topics as hot as healthcare these days and healthcare professionals are undoubtedly interested in staying up-to-date on the latest headlines. Luckily, Barton associates has created Barton Healthcare Headlines, a free mobile application that streams the latest news articles and blog posts from more than 75 different sources straight to the user’s iOS device. Here’s how it works. Users open the application and select the feeds they wish to appear in their news stream. The feeds are organized by specialty to make it easy to choose the topics that are relevant to the user. When the user returns to the news feed screen, it will populate with headlines and a brief description of the articles from each of the sources in reverse chronological order. Tapping a headline brings the user to the article page. If it’s a good article, he or she can share it via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or email. Users can also save the article, which will be stored in the app’s “Saved” section. Since Barton Associates is a locum tenens staffing company, the application also includes the latest locum tenens jobs available through the company. Much like the news feed, users can customize their jobs feed to only feature the specialty or specialties relevant to them, save jobs, and share them via social media and email. One other cool feature is the ability to express interest in a job right from the application. Users just need to tap “Express Interest” and fill out basic contact information, and their information will be sent to a Barton Associates staffing specialist who will contact the user about the opportunity. Healthcare Headlines is a convenient way to keep up-to-date on the latest healthcare news from the best sources. Download it today!
