  • Patent number: 10896745
    Abstract: A smart placement module determines components of received medical data, such as medical reports and image montages, to forward to one or more secondary location, such as an EMR system, based on smart placement rules that are established by a user that receives the medical data, such as a referring doctor. Thus, the smart placement module decreases or removes the need for the receiving user to manually select and transfer certain medical data for storage at the EMR system. Accordingly, the receiving user, and other authorized EMR system users, may have prompt access to the medical data via their respective connections to the EMR system. In one embodiment, the smart placement module transmits a patient identification file that is usable by the receiving EMR system to allow the EMR system to associate received medical data with other data regarding a respective patient.

  • Patent number: 10892046
    Abstract: Techniques for dynamically extracting electronic health records are described. Some embodiments provide an Operational Intelligence Platform (“OIP”) that is configured to dynamically extract electronic health record data from a source customer database that represents health records in a hierarchical format, and store the extracted data in a clinical data engine that represents the health records in a manner that logically preserves the hierarchical format while providing a relational access model to the health records. The OIP may extract health-record data in substantially real-time by performing on-the-fly capture and processing of data updates to the source customer database. Such real-time extraction may be performed in cooperation with large scale, batch extraction of records from the source customer database.

  • Patent number: 10818393
    Abstract: A system for clinical decision support includes a database of previously-recorded waveform data from comparator-patients and a comparator module. The comparator module receives physiological waveform data for a patient and identifies a pattern in the patient's physiological waveform data, wherein the pattern accounts for a morphology and a rhythm of the patient's physiological waveform. The comparator module then compares the patient's physiological waveform data to the previously-recorded waveform data using a pattern recognition algorithm to detect the pattern in the previously-recorded waveform data to identify one or more matches. The comparator module further generates a result set based on the one or more matches.

  • Patent number: 10811125
    Abstract: A method, a computing system and a computer program product are provided. A computing system identifies elements within a collection of medical documents. The elements include patients, adverse events and medical drugs. The medical documents are analyzed by the computer system to determine associations between the identified medical drugs and corresponding identified adverse events. The identified elements and the determined associations may be encoded as features by the computing system. The computing system identifies portions of the medical documents as containing the identified elements and the determined associations. The computing system generates a classification model based at least on the encoded features associated with the identified portions for identifying medical case safety reports within medical documents. The classification model is applied to a new document to determine a classification of the new document with respect to a medical case safety report.
