  • Patent number: 10872131
    Abstract: A method of identifying insights related to the occurrence of an adverse health outcome of interest, comprises extracting electronic clinical data associated with historical healthcare encounters. The method also comprises defining patient groups based upon similar data patterns present in the extracted electronic clinical data wherein the patient groups have varying likelihood for the adverse health outcome. Still further, the method comprises deriving hypothesized etiological explanations for why one or more patient groups have higher likelihood when compared to other patient groups. Optionally, the method comprises identifying clinical interventions that are intended to reduce the likelihood of the adverse outcome for certain patient groups.

  • Patent number: 10832818
    Abstract: An alarm notification system can enable a clinician to respond to an alarm notification received via a computing device, which may have more advanced functionality than a pager. The clinician's device can include a notification client which can respond to alarm notifications. The notification client can also provide one or more user interfaces that enable the clinician to view information about an alarm, such as information about a patient's status, physiological parameter values, trend data, audio/video of the patient, combinations of the same, or the like. Further, the notification client can provide functionality for a clinician to respond to an alarm, annotate an alarm, and/or indicate that the clinician can or cannot respond to the alarm, among other features. In addition, the clinician device can also (or instead) include an admit module that provides for automatic association of a patient to a device or location.

  • Patent number: 10818384
    Abstract: Introduced here are health management platforms able to infer the health state of a subject based on behavioral changes reflected in the digital activities performed by a subject. A health management platform can initially acquire contextual data pertaining to digital activities performed by the subject. The health management platform can identify the target(s) of the digital activities by parsing the contextual data, and then compile the digital activities and corresponding activities into a personalized valence index. Thereafter, the health management platform can compare digital activities performed by the subject to the entries included in the personalized valence index. If a matching entry is not discovered, the health management platform can identify an instance of behavior change. These instances of behavior change may be indicative of changes in the subject's health state.

  • Patent number: 10792110
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed whereby a surface detection system is employed to obtain intraoperative surface data characterizing an exposed surface of the spine. In some embodiments, this intraoperative surface data is registered to segmented surface data obtained from volumetric data of the spine in order to assess the intraoperative orientation of the spine and provide feedback associated with the intraoperative orientation of the spine. The feedback may characterize the intraoperative spinal orientation as a change relative to the preoperative orientation.

  • Patent number: 10734113
    Abstract: A computer aided medical method includes the following steps. An initial symptom of a patient and context information is collected through an interaction interface. Actions in a series are sequentially generated according to the candidate prediction models and the initial symptom. Each of the actions corresponds to one of the inquiry actions or one of the disease prediction actions. If the latest one of the sequential actions corresponds to one of the disease prediction actions, potential disease predictions are generated in a first ranking evaluated by the candidate prediction models. The first ranking is adjusted into a second ranking according to the context information. A result prediction corresponding to the potential disease predictions is generated in the second ranking.

  • Patent number: 10699814
    Abstract: The task is to provide a system which supports smooth patient referral from a referral source medical institution to a referral destination medical institution and which particularly prevents readmission due to cases that are difficult to determine simply based on patient attributes or due to the quality of medical services. To achieve this task, a referral difficult degree calculation unit calculates a referral difficulty degree which quantifies the risk that a patient cannot be discharged because a referral destination cannot be found, in consideration of a readmission risk calculated by a readmission risk calculation unit, the geographical distance between the patient and the referral destination medical institution, the total number of patients accepted, and the number of beds available. This referral difficulty degree is outputted to an output unit of the referral source medical institution or the referral destination medical institution.

  • Patent number: 10685744
    Abstract: Described herein are various technologies pertaining to storing and transmitting formatted genetic test results. A server computing device receives genetic test results from several genetics laboratories, where the genetic test results are in different formats. The server computing device formats each of the genetic test results such that the resultant formatted genetic test results have a uniform format. The server computing device receives a query from a client computing device that is displaying a graphical user interface (GUI) of an electronic health records application (EHR), and searches over the formatted genetic test results to generate search results, wherein the query includes an identifier for a patient whose medical record is being displayed in the GUI of the EHR. The server computing device transmits the search results to the client computing device, whereupon the search results are displayed on the display of the client computing device.
