  • Patent number: 10765528
    Abstract: A spacer for separating bones of a joint includes a frame and a carriage. The carriage has ramped surfaces, and is slideably moveable in relation to the frame. A screw support is moveably connected to the frame to form a changeable angular orientation with respect to the frame. An actuating screw is supported by the screw support, and is connected to the carriage to cause the carriage to slideably move in relation to the frame when the actuating screw is rotated. Opposing endplates are configured to engage opposing bone of the joint, and each has ramped surfaces mateable with the ramped surfaces of the carriage. When the carriage is moved by rotation of the actuating screw, the ramped surfaces of the carriage and the endplates slide against each other, causing the endplates to move relatively apart, to increase the height of the spacer.

  • Publication number: 20200258604
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating customized annotations of a medical record are provided. The system receives a medical record and processes it using a predictive model to identify evidence of a finding. The system then determines whether to have a recall enhancement or validation of a specific finding. Recall enhancement is used to tune or develop the predictive model, while validation is used to rapidly validate the evidence. The source document is provided to the user and feedback is requested. When asking for validation, the system also highlights the evidence already identified and requests the user to indicate if the evidence is valid for a particular finding. If recall enhancement is utilized, the source document is provided and the user is asked to find evidence in the document for a particular finding. The user may then highlight the evidence that supports the finding. The user may also annotate the evidence using free form text.

  • Patent number: 10742595
    Abstract: A system includes a virtual private network (VPN) gateway and a client device. The VPN gateway receives a domain name system response through a physical coding sublayer. The VPN gateway fetches a fully qualified domain name corresponding to the domain name system response, and fetches one or more access control list rules from an access control list table for a specific user account. The VPN gateway installs an Internet protocol (IP) address in the access control list table for each access control list rule and handles requested data traffic to the IP address. The client device creates a virtual tunnel interface route with a port of a transmission control protocol (TCP) listener device and parses the domain name system response. The client device updates a domain name system cache with the fully qualified domain name and the IP address and sends unencrypted network traffic over the virtual tunnel interface route.

  • Publication number: 20200251207
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing audit risks utilizing the true state of the patient are provided. A number of medical records for a patient are subjected to predictive modeling for various conditions (known as patient ‘true state’). The true state is then cross referenced by the eligible Medicare documentation, and any findings that are being submitted to MediCare for reimbursement. The result of this cross referencing is the ability to classify each finding and/or true state into a “green, “yellow”, or “red zone”. The green zone is where the finding, documentation and true state are in good alignment. A red zone is where the finding and the true state are entirely at odds. The yellow zone is where the findings and the true state are in agreement, but where there is still audit risk that may be resolved through one or more “opportunities”.
