  • Patent number: 10702213
    Abstract: A method and device for differentiating heart failure risk scores that includes determining receipt of a current data transmission and acquiring patient metrics from a remote monitoring device, determining a daily heart failure risk score for each day occurring during a time period from a previous received data transmission to the current received data transmission based on the acquired patient metrics, and determining a maximum daily heart failure risk score of the determined daily heart failure risk scores during a lookback window prior to the current received data transmission. A heart failure risk score is determined for the received data transmission based on the determined maximum daily heart failure risk score, and a heart failure risk score alert is determined for the received data transmission based on the proximity of the determined maximum heart failure risk score and the current received data transmission.
