  • Publication number: 20200219617
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to dynamically creating a questionnaire for a patient to fill out while waiting to be seen by a healthcare provider. In various embodiments, an initial differential diagnosis may be determined from the dynamic questionnaire. A set of known medical queries and medical information from a set of known medical documents are grouped into categories. A bipartite graph is generated between the categories of medical information and categories of medical queries. A first query is selected and a user is prompted for input of medical data. A first set of candidate diagnoses is determined based on the user input. The remaining queries are classified to determine a ranking. One or more additional queries are selected from the ranked remaining queries, prompting a user for input of additional medical data. A second set of candidate diagnoses is selected based on the additional medical data.

  • Patent number: 10698964
    Abstract: A method for automatically extracting and organizing information by a processing device from a plurality of data sources is provided. A natural language processing information extraction pipeline that includes an automatic detection of entities is applied to the data sources. Information about detected entities is identified by analyzing products of the natural language processing pipeline. Identified information is grouped into equivalence classes containing equivalent information. At least one displayable representation of the equivalence classes is created. An order in which the at least one displayable representation is displayed is computed. A combined representation of the equivalence classes that respects the order in which the displayable representation is displayed is produced.

  • Publication number: 20200125636
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a system, program product, and method for use with an intelligent computer platform and cognitive processing and associated distribution. The embodiments support a mechanism for dynamically sharing critical and non-critical information responsive to a classification model, such that only relevant information or part of the information is shared. As the classification model is subject to modification, the dynamic sharing mechanism is dynamically updated to reflect such modification. Similarly, as an associated document or file is subject to modification, dynamic processing of the document or file takes place responsive to the classification model. The dynamic classification and document processing employ NLP and ML models to support the associated functionality.

  • Patent number: 10573184
    Abstract: An approach for notifying a passenger of a route deviation during travel. The approach includes calculating a passenger route deviation from a predicted travel route and comparing the passenger route deviation to a predefined threshold route deviation. The approach further includes providing the passenger a notification of a route deviation if the deviation exceeds a predefined route deviation threshold. In addition, the approach determines if the passenger acknowledged the route deviation notification within a predetermined time period and if the passenger fails to acknowledge the notification, then provides the notification to one or more third parties.
