HYP3R is a startup offering a real-time, location-based social media engagement platform. They have introduced the Geosocial Index, designed to measure "the world’s top places, ranked by social activity and capacity." The index focuses on measuring activity related to hotels, stadiums, airports, theme parks, landmarks, and yes - hospitals.

HYP3R statestheir  "goal is to organize the social activity of places around the world and provide the first standardized social media ranking for locations to help businesses understand how their venues are performing." They explain that "the Geosocial Index measures the number of posts, the number of users and the reach per post (e.g. the more followers, the more reach) at a venue, all over a certain time period, while taking into account the venue’s capacity. This creates an apples-to-apples comparison for venues of all sizes. As an example, an Geosocial Index of 2.0 means the hotel generates twice as much social activity as similarly-sized hotels."

They go on to define the HYP3R Score as "calculating the number of posts, users and reach at a venue, and then ranks that level of social activity on a scale with all other venues in the same industry. The HYP3R Score is a standard deviation that goes from 0 (no social activity) to 100 (highest amount of social activity)."
