  • Publication number: 20060195340
    Abstract: A system and method for restoring health data stored in a database includes storing the healthcare data in a database located in a central server connected to a community of independent sources of the healthcare data for a first plurality of patients; replicating at least a portion of the database in at least a two servers networked to the central server, the at least two servers networked as a function of coverage of at least one electrical power grid providing service to the central server such that the at least two servers receive service from at least one electrical power grid outside of the coverage of the at least one electrical power grid providing service to the central server; replicating the at least a portion of the database in a second central server connected to a second community of independent sources of healthcare data for one or more patients, the second central server including a second database of healthcare data for a second plurality of patients; and enabling access by a client machine to

  • Publication number: 20060129435
    Abstract: A system and method for receiving health data from a community of independent sources of health data related to one or more patients, the health data being selected from the set including oral data, written data and/or electronic data; formatting the health data to enable creation of a universal patient record for each of the one or more patients by tagging of the health data to enable extraction of pertinent portions of the health data for coding of health encounters with the one or more patients; and enabling controlled access to the formatted health data via a network connecting the community of independent sources of health data, the network including at least one central server including a central database storing the formatted health data and at least two on-site servers, each on-site server located at one of the independent sources of health data and each on-site server configured to hold a database replicated from the central database.

  • Publication number: 20060129434
    Abstract: A system and method for disseminating healthcare data in a database includes storing the healthcare data in the database located in a central server connected to a community of independent sources of the healthcare data for a plurality of patients; incorporating one or more updates to the healthcare data in the database from one or more of the independent sources to enable one or more healthcare providers, including rarely-used healthcare providers, to receive current data concerning the plurality of patients, the current data including demographic data on the plurality of patients; coding the healthcare data in the database to enable on-the-fly transmission of the healthcare data to one or more healthcare service providers outside the community of independent sources.
