  • Patent number: 10978179
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and computer program product monitors clinical research performance. One or more metrics of clinical research performance for investigator/provider/research sites across research studies are collected. The metrics include performance area, characteristic of the performance area with one or more attributes, point values for each attribute, and weight value for the characteristic. A performance score is produced for each of the entities based on the one or more metrics. A machine learning model is trained to determine performance scores based on the produced performance score for each of the entities. A request for entities is processed by applying performance scores from the machine learning model and appropriate corresponding data to a predictive model to determine resulting performance scores, rank and/or match for each of the one or more entities for a given protocol and/or assessment trigger.

  • Patent number: 10917281
    Abstract: An apparatus for displaying a moving region of interest located within a body includes a positioning system to determine a position and orientation (P&O) of a medical device as well as to track, using an internal position reference sensor, the motion of the region of interest over time. A compensation function block generates a motion compensation function based on the motion of the region of interest, which is configured to compensate for the motion of the region of interest between a first time, for example a time at which an image was acquired and a second time, for example a time at which a P&O of the device was measured. The measured P&O is corrected using the compensation function. A representation of the medical device is superimposed on the image in accordance with the corrected P&O.
