  • Patent number: 10170204
    Abstract: The inventions disclosed herein include methods, systems, and tools for use in processing prescriptions. Among the benefits of these methods, systems, and tools are promotion of efficiency in filling prescriptions and reduction of errors. A heightened analysis element may be established that alerts a pharmaceutical professional to a particular component of a prescription (a prescription element) for special attention. An insignificant differences notice may de-emphasize certain prescription elements to inform a pharmaceutical professional that the information of such prescription elements is less critical. Methods of the present invention may be used to designate a prescription as a renewal, partial renewal, or partially equivalent renewal. The disclosed inventions include methods of creating and/or using such heightened analysis elements, insignificant differences notices, and/or designation of a prescription as a renewal, partial renewal, or partially equivalent renewal.

  • Patent number: 10157262
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for determining patient financial responsibility for multiple prescription products across multiple healthcare transactions. A service provider computer can receive multiple healthcare transactions, and can evaluate each to determine if it includes a total group transaction number and a transaction number. The service provider computer can compare the transaction number to the total group transaction number to determine if all transactions within a group have been received. Once received, the transactions can be transmitted to the claims processor computer for adjudication. Upon receiving the adjudicated response for each transaction within the group, the service provider computer can identify the patient co-pay for each of the adjudicated responses in the group and can calculate a total patient pay amount based on the group of patient co-pays. The total patient pay amount may then be transmitted to a healthcare provider computer associated with a healthcare provider.

  • Patent number: 10140422
    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: 10123748
    Abstract: Electronic health records of a plurality of patients are received. A risk prediction model for a disease based on the electronic health records of the plurality of patients is created. An electronic health record of an original patient is received.

An ordering of the two or more patients of the neighboring group of patients is received, wherein the ordering of the two or more patients of the neighboring group of patients is based upon how similar each patient of the two or more patients is to the original patient. The risk prediction model is updated based on the ordering of the two or more patients of the neighboring group of patients.

  • Patent number: 10042982
    Abstract: Healthcare costs accumulated across a plurality of claims systems are managed using a centralized accumulator, which receives cost accumulator data for adjudicated claims from multiple sending claim systems. An accumulator record type is identified from the cost accumulator data and used to generate a cross-reference record. The record type includes an adjudicated claim. A routing message is generated for at least one receiving claim system according to the identified accumulator record type, the cost accumulator data received from the sending claim system, and an identity of the at least one receiving claim system. In response to sending the routing message to the receiving claim system, an acknowledgement is received, which is used to update the cross-reference record by the processor.
