Finding an RSS feed

  1. Use Google to search for an RSS feed. You can search for your local news station's RSS feeds for more relevant headlines.

    For example, to get a US CDC feed, search “CDC RSS.” That will give you a link directly to the page on cdc.gov that lists their RSS feeds.

  2. Choose a category and copy the feed URL. This web address is what you will paste into your VMcast RSS slide. Make sure to include the http:// or https:// for the feed URL.

    For example, the feed URL below will load the headlines for the CDC Newsroom.

    http://tools.cdc.gov/podcasts/feed.asp?feedid=183

Preview your feeds

Always preview a feed before using it on your waiting room TV. Some feeds may not be appropriate for your office. By reviewing an RSS feed first, you can be assured that your patients are seeing appropriate content.
