UC Berkeley graduate students develop hospital-ranking app
The Daily Californian

A group of graduate students from the UC Berkeley School of Information have developed an app to help patients find medical services catered to their specific needs.

With the app, “My Best Hospital,” users have the ability to evaluate hospitals nationwide, based on four different measures, by using a sliding-scale interface aggregated from publicly available data. Graduate students Christopher Walker, Rahul Bansal, Lisa Kirch and Joe Morales created the app as a project for a summer course in the Master of Information and Data Science program.
