  • Patent number: 11482336
    Abstract: A risk-based patient monitoring system for critical care patients combines data from multiple sources to assess the current and the future risks to the patient, thereby enabling providers to review a current patient risk profile and to continuously track a clinical trajectory. A physiology observer module in the system utilizes multiple measurements to estimate Probability Density Functions (PDF) of a number of Internal State Variables (ISVs) that describe a components of the physiology relevant to the patient treatment and condition. A clinical trajectory interpreter module in the system utilizes the estimated PDFs of ISVs to identify under which probable patient states the patient can be currently categorized and assign a probability value that the patient will be in each of the identified states. The combination of patient states and their probabilities is defined as the clinical risk to the patient.

  • Patent number: 11468442
    Abstract: A payment processor acting on behalf of a third party administrator to make payment on an adjudicated claim makes a straight through payment to an acquirer for a health care provider's merchant account. Via the authorization process, the payment processor generates an authorization code which is returned to the health care provider on its merchant statement for the payment. Concurrently, the remittance advice from the third party administrator is linked to the same authorization code as the payment by the payment processor which sends the advice in an 835-formatted transmission to the health care provider. Thus, the remittance advice may be linked (reconciled) with the payment on the merchant statement by the common authorization code.

  • Patent number: 11386984
    Abstract: A notation assistant system has a machine learning system, a notation processing system, a scoring system, and a suggestion system. The machine learning system trains a classifier for rating a factor related to a clinical narrative note that describes a patient's health status. The notation processing system processes a clinical narrative note and the scoring system determines a factor rating, such as a completion score or a clarity score. The scoring system provides the factor rating to an end-user device to display to a user. The notation assistant system is configured to perform a method as a user is entering a clinical narrative note to provide real-time feedback, such as the factor rating. The suggestion system is configured to provide suggestions for modifying the clinical narrative note to improve the rating factor. The notation assistant system applies to patient health conditions such as a health status of a patient's heart for a patient receiving care for congestive heart failure.
