  • Patent number: 10354760
    Abstract: A system and method for mediating anomaly notifications in health data to health alerts using data structures and logic to organize, contain, and disposition identified health anomalies. Multiple generators of anomaly notifications operating asynchronously and independently can be processed. The case manager organizes anomaly notifications and supports collaborative decision making among users with diverse areas of expertise. A network server stores health data that has been gathered from various sources. A user can visualize the data on a client computer networked to the server by downloading from the server user specified sets of health-related data based on a case or set of anomalies describing a subset of the data, and source code for visualizing the data.

  • Patent number: 10318915
    Abstract: A centrally controlled healthcare environment interconnects manufacturers of medical products, healthcare providers, and patients in a manner that provides a variety of functionalities. A particularly advantageous application of the system provides a mechanism for regulating and recording the flow of free drug samples from manufacturers to healthcare providers and then to patients. This involves a method by which a unique record is created each time it changes hands on the way from the manufacturer to the patient. A machine-readable unique code assigned to the sample is scanned automatically when the sample it is withdrawn from inventory at the manufacturer. The code and a unique identity of the individual withdrawing the sample are stored as a first record. This process is repeated at each location and for each individual handling the sample, including when it reaches the healthcare provider. Thus, a series of unique records is created that track the sample.

  • Patent number: 10296712
    Abstract: A programmed computer system receives an imaging study of the patient including metadata associated with the study. The metadata are analyzed to determine an anatomic region represented by the study. Additional imaging studies for the same patient are requested and the metadata associated with the additional studies are analyzed to determine relevant studies for the same or adjacent anatomic regions. Once the relevant prior studies have been identified, the computer requests the images associated with the identified prior imaging studies including the associated reports for review by a physician or other medical personnel.

  • Patent number: 10297346
    Abstract: In an appointment-making method for a user's mobile device, a request for an appointment with a doctor is transmitted by the mobile device. Information as to doctors and services available for patient registration therewith is obtained and transmitted to the mobile device. A confirmation response from user's mobile device is received, and an appointment with a doctor is fixed. A registration number is assigned to the user in response to the received confirmation response. According to the assigned registration number, a patient queue for the doctor or the department is established, based on a predefined queue algorithm. Data as to queue length associated with the registration number is transmitted to the mobile device and payment of medical fees can also be made through the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10276266
    Abstract: A medical information system informs prescribers of prescription compliance information in a system for preparing a prescription. The point of prescribing messaging system can assist physicians in understanding prescription compliance when prescribing medication for patients by reviewing pertinent compliance data displayed with the apparatus such as filling dates, dosage and supply information, etc. The system may include a point of prescription application configured to access, either locally or remotely, compliance data typically generated from a pharmacy system. Prescription filling data and supply/dosage information may be compared to generate automated alerts to a physician or prescriber to identify over use, under use, compliance or non-compliance situations based on the accessed and compared data or otherwise identify differences between prescribed medication information and filled medication information.

  • Patent number: 10275895
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to methods and a mechanism for manipulating images generated by radiotherapy machines used in radiation diagnostic and treatment applications. In one embodiment, a method is provided for intelligent automatic propagation of manual or automatic contouring across linked (e.g., registered) images and image data sets by acquiring one or more images of one or more image data sets; determining the correlation between the images with respect to identified structures; and generating a deformation map that establishes a correspondence for each point in the source image with a point in the target image. Subsequently, the intelligent propagation mechanism applies this deformation map individually to each structure of the source image and propagates the deformed structure to the target image.
