Gordon Lyles Blackwell, Jr. has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10691826
    Abstract: A method facilitating searching of data containing protected date information includes generating one or more randomly escalating dateID values for each date during a time period and storing such generated dateID values in a lookup table together with an encrypted, associated date value. Such generated dateID values can be stored in a datasource in place of protected dates in order to safeguard protected health information. In one or more preferred implementations, a de-identified date is stored in the lookup table in association with a dateID, and utilized for searching operations.

  • Patent number: 10671757
    Abstract: Technologies relating to converting an alphanumerical string that comprises personally identifying data (PID) into a signature for the string are described herein. The string is partitioned into several substrings, where each substring includes at least one character. For each substring, a sequence of bits that is uniquely mapped to the substring is retrieved from a mapping table. Thereafter, at least one bit is removed from each sequence of bits to create updated sequences of bits, and the updated sequences of bits are ordered based upon their values. For each updated sequence of bits, a substring that is uniquely mapped to the updated sequence of bits is retrieved from the mapping table. The retrieved substrings are concatenated in the order corresponding to the updated sequence of bits.

  • Patent number: 10658075
    Abstract: A system includes a non-transitory computer-readable medium containing computer-executable instructions for providing a method related to rapid reporting of meaningful use in electronic health records. The method includes storing patient encounter data in a database, pre-calculating data related to at least one meaningful use measure, storing the pre-calculated data in a plurality of small staging tables, and compiling the pre-calculated and stored data from the small staging tables into a single table that is adapted to be accessed by reporting software.

  • Patent number: 10635690
    Abstract: A method for synchronizing records stored at a first data storage location with records stored at a second, remote data storage location utilizes bitwise fingerprints and bitwise operations to determine records that exist in a first data set but not a second data set. A method for synchronizing records stored at a first data storage location with records stored at a second, remote data storage location utilizes bitwise fingerprints, and bitwise operations, and dynamic temporal segmentation to compare the timeliness of records in the first and second data sets.
