  • Publication number: 20200087702
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein provide for reagents and methods for rapidly isolating viable microbial cells, including S. pneumoniae, from positive blood culture samples. The resulting microbial pellet can be used for both identification and growth-based methods such as antimicrobial susceptibility testing. The buffers described herein may contain a base solution, non-ionic detergents, thiols, and optionally, ammonium chloride. The disclosed methods provide a process for rapidly isolating and concentrating viable microorganism(s) from PBC samples using only one sample preparation tube and centrifugation while removing cellular debris from the mammalian blood cells that may interfere with identification methods.

  • Publication number: 20200027531
    Abstract: A computing entity accesses instances of medical information corresponding to a population of patients and generates a plurality of medical sentences corresponding to the population by, for each patient of the population, generating one medical sentence corresponding to the patient and a timestamp associated with each instance such that the one medical sentence comprises one or more medical codes in a chronological order. The computing entity generates a vector dictionary comprising a plurality of multi-dimensional vectors based on a vector generation model trained using machine learning and the plurality of medical sentences with each multi-dimensional vector corresponding to a medical code. The computing entity generates a digital representation of a first patient of the population using an anagram model and the vector dictionary, determines a health state of the first patient based on the digital representation, and provides an output indicating the health state of the first patient.

  • Patent number: 8340983
    Abstract: A method and system for furnishing an on-line quote for an insurance product, such as auto insurance, the user is allowed to enter basic user information on an on-line quote system application which calls a common data entry system to request credit information for the user. The common data entry system sends the requested credit information to the on-line quote system application, and the user is allowed to enter a selection of coverage. The user is then allowed to enter underwriting information on the on-line quote system application which calls a rating engine of the common data entry system to request rating information. The on-line quote system application displays a quote for the user based at least in part on the rating information, and the user is offered an option to talk to an agent. A fast-forward feature simplifies the entry of modifications for the user.

  • Publication number: 20090177501
    Abstract: A method and system for furnishing an on-line quote for an insurance product, such as auto insurance, makes use of computer hardware and software to provide a user with an on-line, real-time quote. The system allows the user to enter user information and recommends coverages, liabilities, and deductibles to help the user determine the best insurance coverage for the user's needs. Upon entering the user data and coverage information on a presentation server, deployable content profile information is retrieved by the presentation server, and a quote is displayed for the user. If the user indicates a continued interest in the quote, a client number is presented to the user and sent to a computer telephony integration database.
