  • Publication number: 20220138234
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating mapping of semantically similar terms between and among two or more information systems. In particular, to facilitate automatic discovery, establishment, and/or statistical validation of linkages between a plurality of different nomenclatures employed by a plurality of information systems, such as multiple electronic health record systems. In embodiments, the imputation of latent synonymy in corpora comprised of samples of historical records from each system enables automated terminology mapping between disparate systems' records, thereby establishing reliable linkages that may subsequently be utilized for realtime decision support, data mining-based research, or other valuable purposes.

  • Patent number: 11308166
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating patient health care by providing discovery, validation, and quality assurance of nomenclatural linkages between pairs of terms or combinations of terms in databases extant on multiple different health information systems that do not share a set of unified codesets, nomenclatures, or ontologies, or that may in part rely upon unstructured free-text narrative content instead of codes or standardized tags. Embodiments discover semantic structures existing naturally in documents and records, including relationships of synonymy and polysemy between terms arising from disparate processes, and maintained by different information systems. In some embodiments, this process is facilitated by applying Latent Semantic Analysis in concert with decision-tree induction and similarity metrics.

  • Patent number: 11183302
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are provided for determining and ascribing clinical conditions or diagnoses to patients and provide them to a caregiver, such as attending clinicians or other appropriate health services personnel. In particular, embodiments of the disclosure determine likely phenotypic findings that are salient to the decision-making context for a current human patient, based on anticipative sequence-mining and trajectory-mining. A sequential pattern mining and sequence itemset matching system is provided for determining likely, temporally-relevant concepts that are manifested in the information that is produced during the course of a patient's care. A clinician or caregiver may be provided the sequence itemset matching by generating a list or notice. In addition or alternatively, the results may be stored in an EHR associated with the patient.

  • Patent number: 11100289
    Abstract: Methods and systems for enhanced natural language processing of clinical documentation are provided. Using natural language processing, a clinical condition is extracted from unstructured data within a current electronic document. A clinical ontology identifying itemsets associated with the clinical condition is retrieved, and indicators of relevant clinical concepts, as identified from the ontology, are searched from within the patient's longitudinal record, which comprises documentation from at least a prior encounter. Based on the whether the clinical concepts are present in the patent's record, a confidence is assigned to the NLP-extracted clinical condition, and one or more actions may be performed.

  • Patent number: 11087881
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating clinical decision making, and in particular, facilitating treatment of a person having congestive heart failure. The method includes the step of receiving patient information for a patient. The method also includes the steps of determining whether the patient information suggests a trigger event, and upon determining a trigger event, determining at least one goal associated with the trigger event. The method also includes the steps of selecting a first plan, from a library of plans, corresponding to the goal and executing the plan, which further includes determining a solver to determine patient conditions or recommended treatments, receiving parameters for the determined solver, and preparing patient information for the determined solver.

  • Publication number: 20200251225
    Abstract: Methods, computer systems, and computer readable media for transforming raw healthcare data into relevant healthcare data are provided. Transformation of raw healthcare data into relevant data is accomplished by receiving raw data from a plurality of disparate data sources, indexing the data, and mapping the data. Embodiments transform raw data into relevant data through the use of natural language processing, synonymy and ontology mapping, and adaptive knowledge processing. The relevant data is stored in a one record that includes information necessary to understand and represent that patient.

  • Patent number: 10734115
    Abstract: Methods are provided for validating theoretical improvements in the decision-support processes facilitating surveillance and monitoring of a patient's risk for developing a particular disease or condition and detecting the disease or condition. Patient information is received from a source and populated into an active risk assessment that monitors the patient's risk for developing Sepsis. At least a first and second set of actionable criteria for determining a patient's risk for developing sepsis are received. For each set of actionable criteria, it is determined that actionable criteria have been met. In some embodiments, software agents, operating in a multi-agent computing platform, perform each determination of whether actionable criteria are met.

  • Patent number: 10672516
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating clinical decision making by directing the emission of computer-generated health-care related recommendations towards contexts in which the recipient will likely find the recommendations salient and will likely welcome them and act upon them. ‘Uptake’ of computer-generated recommendations for diagnostic tests or therapeutic interventions is thereby substantially increased, and ‘alert fatigue’ is substantially decreased. Embodiments of our technology overcome certain drawbacks associated with the prior art by providing a means for ascertaining which decision-support recommendations are likely to be favorably considered by the recipient and acted-upon (recommendation ‘uptake’). System and method embodiments for providing a predicted probability of user uptake of a context-specific system-generated recommendation patient are disclosed herein and for applying that information to decide whether or not to emit the relevant recommendation.

  • Patent number: 10580524
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating record matching and entity resolution and for enabling improvements in record linkage. A power-spectrum-based temporal pattern-specific weight may be incorporated into record linkage methods to enhance the record linkage accuracy and statistical performance. For example, in embodiments, a value-specific weight may be calculated from a population-based frequency of field-specific values and provides an opportunity to capture and measure the relative importance of specific values found in a field. A timeseries-derived Bayesian power spectrum weight may be calculated from the population-based frequency of temporal pattern-specific values in terms of intensities at various frequencies of the power spectrum computed from the timeseries, and further provides an opportunity to capture and measure the relative importance of specific sequences of care episodes.
