  • Patent number: 9536046
    Abstract: Described is a technology by which medical patient facial images are acquired and maintained for associating with a patient's records and/or other items. A video camera may provide video frames, such as captured when a patient is being admitted to a hospital. Face detection may be employed to clip the facial part from the frame. Multiple images of a patient's face may be displayed on a user interface to allow selection of a representative image. Also described is obtaining the patient images by processing electronic documents (e.g., patient records) to look for a face pictured therein.

  • Publication number: 20120004925
    Abstract: Technology is described for developing health care policies for use in a health care facility. In one example method, a health care policy can be applied in a health care software application and stored in a health care database. A correlated feature set can be correlated to the health care policy being developed. A selection of health care cases can be obtained from the health care database for testing the health care policy. A model can predict a defined effect of the health care policy based on the correlated feature set. A cost of implementing the health care policy on a defined percentage of patients can be predicted using the defined effect by the model and a specified predictor by applying statistical analysis. The system can guide the allocation of resources in a patient-specific manner. The policies can also be applied in conjunction with user models to guide alerting.
