  • Publication number: 20190304021
    Abstract: A method and system for scanning claims data, the method comprising receiving, by a computing system, contract details associated with claims, receiving, by the computer system, prescription transactions data associated with the claims, parsing, by the computer system, the transactions data into column values, and executing, by the computer system, analytics on the parsed transactions. The analytics include comparing the parsed transactions against the contract details for accurate pricing, fees, and accepted treatment protocols concerning dose and quantity, comparing the parsed transactions with independent pricing data that is based on third-party pricing data and drug information, identifying material errors in the parsed transactions, determining withholdings from payment of the claims for a portion above a tolerance level based on the identified material errors. The method further comprising presenting, by the computer system, results of the execution of the analytics to a portal.

  • Patent number: 8167533
    Abstract: Wind energy systems comprise a wind accelerator having a support assembly and an outer structure surrounding the support assembly. The wind accelerator has a front region and a rear region. The rear region is substantially wider than the front region, and the outer structure tapers from the rear region to the front region. One or more turbines are mounted on the support assembly at or near the rear region of the wind accelerator or at or near the widest point of the wind accelerator.

  • Patent number: 8170896
    Abstract: A system and method for performing a business transaction including delivering a business message, comprising providing in a first transaction the business message to a first workflow process; transferring the business message from the first workflow process to a second process wherein the transfer is not part of the first transaction; wherein the business message is transferred to the second process using a protocol; and wherein transferring the business message to the second process will be successful even if the first workflow process abnormally terminates.

  • Patent number: 7844636
    Abstract: A message broker can allow any server in a cluster to publish to, and subscribe, to a message channel. A server subscribing to a channel can set up a message filter such that XQuery expressions can be used to filter against the messages arriving on the channel A message broker can also utilize a unique filtering algorithm to optimize data access. Static subscription information can be captured in order for a message broker to do client-side filtering. A message broker can also construct and maintain at least one table in memory that indicates whether any server in the cluster may ever do a dynamic subscription. For dynamic subscriptions, the publishing server can extract the information from a database, such as by executing a DBMS select on a subscription table using a primary key lookup.

  • Patent number: 7752599
    Abstract: An easy-to-use workflow language can be created by extending an existing, common language such as JAVA. The language can be extended by adding those constructs that are missing but desirable. Such desirable constructs can include parallelism, asynchrony, loops over asynchronous events, and flexible handling of XML. Such constructs can allow a user to define a virtual program using the extended JAVA syntax. For example, XML can be placed inside a JAVA class that defines the high-level orchestration logic a workflow should follow. That orchestration logic can refer to the JAVA class to carry out work, such that the logic to handle an incoming message is really in JAVA. This description is not intended to be a complete description of, or limit the scope of, the invention. Other features, aspects, and objects of the invention can be obtained from a review of the specification, the figures, and the claims.
