  • Patent number: 10765379
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing machine-generated medical alerts associated with physiological events detected from one or more patients are described herein. An alert management system may receive medical events detected from a patient and physiological data associated with patient historical medical alerts. The system comprises an alert prioritizer circuit to generate an event priority indicator for the detected medical event, using a comparison between the detected medical event and the physiological data associated with patient historical medical alerts. The system can identify prolific alert patients using the information about the historical medical alerts. The alert prioritizer circuit can adjust a priority of the detected medical event, and an output circuit can present a priority to a user or a process using the event priority indicator and the identification of prolific alert patient.

  • Publication number: 20190008384
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing machine-generated medical events detected from one or more patients are described herein. A medical event management system includes an event analyzer circuit to detect a medical event using physiological data from a patient-triggered episode acquired from a medical device. The event analyzer circuit determines a confidence score of the medical event detection, and generates an alignment indicator indicating a degree of concordance between the detected medical event and the information about the patient-triggered episode. The system assigns priority information to the patient-triggered episode using the generated alignment indicator and the confidence score of the detection. An output circuit can output the received physiological information to a user or a process according to the assigned priority information.
