  • Publication number: 20140324454
    Abstract: Methods and systems enable healthcare providers to treat a medical condition of a patient using a processor that may receive assessment data of the patient, which may include a health history and results from at least one diagnostic test. Treatment of the medical condition may also include using the processor to evaluate the received assessment data for identifying a medical condition of the patient and a metabolite that affects the medical condition, to identify a probiotic that regulates the metabolite, to develop a formula for a personalized medication that includes the identified probiotic based on the identified probiotic and the patient's medical records, and to send the formula for the personalized medication to a manufacturing site server for use in manufacturing the personalized medication.

  • Patent number: 8825503
    Abstract: Methods and systems enable healthcare providers to identify metabolites that may cause a medical condition in a patient. The healthcare providers may then use the identified metabolite to identify a probiotic that may affect the regulation of that metabolite. Patient information, such as medical history and diagnosis data may then be used in combination with the identified probiotic to create a personalized medicament for that patient.

  • Patent number: 8538094
    Abstract: An objective measure of human QOL is determined by a QOL quantification system. The QOL quantification system comprises a QOL rules engine, a QOL measure datastore, a score data archive, a user computing device, and a network. The QOL measure datastore comprises quantifiable measures of QOL of a QOL factor. The QOL rules engine comprises instructions for receiving user data indicative of a plurality of attributes of a selected QOL factor of the user, obtaining measures of QOL from the QOL measures datastore associated with the selected QOL factor, evaluating the user data against the QOL measures of the selected QOL factor, determining a user score indicative of the QOL of the selected QOL factor of the user, storing the user score in the score data archive, and comparing the user score to a score stored in the score data archive. The QOL rules engine may also suggest change options to one or more QOL factors to improve the user score.
