  • Publication number: 20140058738
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein provide predictive analysis of medical treatment pathways to assist healthcare providers and/or patients determine the statistical probability of a treatment outcome, among the experience of a large patient and provider population, of a particular treatment step along a defined treatment pathway for a specific patient of interest. Specifically, a plurality of predictive models, based on data from a large and demographically similar patient population, are created for a plurality of treatment paths stemming from a selected treatment node within a medical treatment pathway of a clinical guideline. Medical data for the patient of interest is input to the plurality of predictive models, and model generated treatment outcome probabilities for the patient of interest are generated and compared for each of the plurality of treatment paths stemming from the selected treatment node.

  • Patent number: 7703670
    Abstract: The present invention describes a method and system for creating and exposing order status within a supply chain of trading partners having disparate systems. A trading partner exchange (TPE) interfaces with each of the disparate systems and gathers information pertaining to a particular transaction. The information can be made available to an access platform through an access platform interface. Initially, a transaction is reported to the TPE where it is assigned a unique identifier. Subsequent activities pertaining to the transaction which are reported to the TPE by the trading partners can be linked to the unique identifier. By using the access platform, a customer or any trading partner can acquire the status of a particular order from the TPE.

  • Patent number: 7143094
    Abstract: The present invention describes a method and system for ensuring data consistency amongst a plurality of disparate computing systems that communicate in order to provide an electronic transactional service. Information or data that is common between various databases associated with each of the disparate systems can be identified and monitored during communication. Once the common data gets modified, the modified data can be converted to a format compatible with all the other databases. All the other databases can then be updated to ensure that the modified data is consistent amongst the databases of the various disparate systems. In one aspect of the invention, adapters interfacing with each disparate computing system can identifications to common data. The adapter can communicate the modification to a central data control point (DCP), which can then update all other databases with the modification.

  • Publication number: 20030004822
    Abstract: A method for integrating multi-channel retailing can include distributing and replicating selected data across retail channels via asynchronously transmitted messages in a common data format. The method can include the steps of: intercepting data processing messages in a retail IT system for use in one type of retail channel; formatting data in the intercepted messages using a user-definable markup language; and, asynchronously communicating the formatted data to at least one other retail IT system for use in at least one other type of retail channel. Notably, the user definable markup language can be XML. In one aspect of the invention, each converted data processing message can be asynchronously forwarded to a data control point; and, the forwarded messages can be asynchronously routed in the data control point to the others of the retail IT systems.

  • Patent number: 4554593
    Abstract: Image processing system for reproducing on a bilevel medium documents having mixed formats (text, halftone, and continuous tone) by selective thresholding of scanned pel values based on detected characteristics of the material to be reproduced. The characteristics of interest for each pel include its reflectance (gray) level, a gradient value derived from surrounding pels, a hysteresis value based on the thresholding decisions for preceding pels, and a look-ahead value based on following pels. Depending on relationships among the characteristics of interest, the pel values are applied to one of a plurality of thresholders most suitable for thresholding the determined format. The determination (discrimination) process can be improved by including a novel defocused symmetry discriminator (or a high-frequency detector) in conjunction with an information homogeneity discriminator to eliminate local anomolies.
