I have monitored media stories through searchable media databases such as Infomart to report on media hits and produce media digests on specific topics or people to be emailed to an executive or a group.
I have produced daily and weekly digests of English and French language media stories for internal use and to distribute to members. These digests were industry and topic specific.
To support the membership of Research Canada I conceived of and developed a portal to provide media services to the research community including news release distribution and digests of important stories for the research community. This was well received by the community.
Health Research Innovation Portal
I conceived of the Portal as a single place to go to find news, releases and comment for, about, and by the research and innovation community. It was designed to place Research Canada at the centre of the community while providing a key online meeting place that up until then had not existed. The services it provides are valuable to a community that felt that they had been priced out of the news market.
The Media Portal helped promote the World Health Summit held in Montreal in May 2017, sponsored in part by the Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM)/Montreal Clinical Research Institute. This communication tool was very useful to publicize this international summit and to enhance the visibility of our institute. As a Member of Research Canada, it is definitely a huge advantage.

I designed and contracted a program to build a database (built on the Filemaker platform) to manage and distribute media monitoring to members, bill for distribution services, and track member relations..
