  • Patent number: 11158414
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments provide techniques for identifying gaps in health management data, and combining an estimated data subset with the health management data to fill in gaps in the health management data. The health management data can be derived from a wearable electronic fitness tracking device such as a smart watch or pedometer. The estimated data subset can be derived based on historical data for the individual, average data for a demographic group, crowdsourced, or estimated based on user profile information, and/or portable electronic device information, such as from a smartphone belonging to a user. The estimated data subset is combined with the health management data to form a revised health parameter dataset. The estimated data subset may be sent to a wearable electronic fitness tracking device, which causes the wearable electronic fitness tracking device to initiate a fitness program adjustment based on the revised health parameter dataset.

  • Patent number: 11147626
    Abstract: Systems and methods facilitate the planning and performance of hip and other surgeries. A computer model of a hip may be generated and displayed. A template of a hip component that replaces a native portion of the hip may be superimposed on the model. Changes in leg length, offset, or anterior-posterior (AP) position as well as a virtual distance between a landmark on the model and a location on the template may be determined. During surgery, a physical distance corresponding to the virtual distance may be obtained. The template may be moved relative to the model to match the physical distance, and new change values in leg length, offset, or anterior-posterior (AP) position may be determined. The new change values may be evaluated, and the surgery may proceed, or the process may be repeated using templates corresponding to alternative components.

  • Patent number: 11139062
    Abstract: This patent disclosure provides various embodiments of combining multiple modalities of non-text surgical data of different formats, in particular in forms of videos, images, and audios in a meaningful manner so that the combined data from the multiple modalities are compatible with text data. In some embodiments, prior to combining the multiple modalities of surgical data, multiple segmentation engines are used to segment and convert a corresponding modality of surgical data into a corresponding set of metrics and parameters. The multiple sets of metrics and parameters corresponding to the multiple modalities are then combined to generate a combined feature set. The combined feature set can be provided to a data analytics tool for performing comprehensive data analyses on the combined feature set to generate one or more predictions for the surgical procedure.

  • Patent number: 11120914
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided that implement a plurality of heterogeneous causality models and a metaclassifier for predicting a likelihood of causality between a drug and an adverse event (AE). The plurality of heterogenous causality models process drug information for the drug to generate a plurality of risk predictions for a drug and AE pair. The risk predictions include at least one of a risk score or a risk label indicating a probability of the AE occurring with use of the drug. The plurality of heterogenous causality models provide the risk predictions, associated with the drug and AE pair, to a metaclassifier which generates a single causality score value indicative of a probability of causality between the drug and the AE, of the drug and AE pair, based on an aggregation of the risk predictions from the plurality of heterogenous causality models. The metaclassifier outputs the single causality score value in association with information identifying the drug and AE pair.

  • Patent number: 11114185
    Abstract: A method, computing device and computer program product are provided to define a level of assurance in one or more links between patient records that relate to the same person based upon external information. In the context of a method, one or more links are identified between a patient record associated with a person and pre-existing patient records. Each pre-existing patient record has a plurality of demographic attributes associated with a patient. The method identifies one or more links based upon an analysis of the demographic attributes of the person and the respective patients associated with the pre-existing patient records. The method receives external information regarding a relationship between the person and the respective patients associated with the pre-existing patient records or regarding confirmation of an identity of the person. The method also defines a level of assurance in the respective one or more links based upon the external information.

  • Patent number: 11043289
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for monitoring, predicting and/or alerting for census periods in medical inpatient units are presented. A system can perform a first machine learning process to learn patterns in patient flow data related to a set of patient identities and a set of operations associated with a set of medical inpatient units. The system can also perform a second machine learning process to detect abnormalities associated with the patterns in the patient flow data. Furthermore, the system can determine patient census data associated with a prediction for a total number of patient identities in the set of medical inpatient units during a period of time based on the patterns and the abnormalities. The system can also generate an alert for a user interface in response to a determination that the patient census data satisfies a defined criterion.
