  • Publication number: 20180374159
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method of providing a complete payment of a medical claim to a medical service provider. According to an exemplary embodiment, multiple insurer/employer payer processers each provide funds associated with an insurer's/employer's portion of a claim and funds associated with the patient's portion of the claim to a central financial interchange settlement process which provides a complete payment to the medical service provider. According to an exemplary embodiment, the financial interchange is operatively associated with a patient reserve trust which operates as a guarantor of the patient portion funds paid to the medical service provider in the event the patient's adjudicated portion is ultimately unpaid by the patient.

  • Patent number: 9100122
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed to analyze and predict the interference susceptibility of receiver designs. In some implementations, the systems and methods may be used during a receiver design phase to predict how well a receiver design will perform in the presence of certain types of signals in a deployment region of a receiver. The systems and methods may allow potential shortcomings in a receiver design affecting interference susceptibility to be identified and remedied before any actual receiver hardware is constructed, thereby reducing costs typically associated with complex hardware redesign efforts.

  • Publication number: 20140088999
    Abstract: Segregated employer group settlement accounts (101, 102, . . . , 10N) receive payments for medical insurance claims and an explanation of benefits (EOB) memory (14) receives an explanation of the medical services of multiple medical service providers against which parts of the payment are to be applied and explanations of amounts due by individual patients. An electronic sorting and transfer processor (16) in accordance with the explanations of benefits, electronically transfers funds from each of the employer group settlement accounts into each of a plurality of medical service provider settlement accounts (261, 262, . . . 26M) without co-mingling funds. The funds from the service provider settlement accounts are transferred (30) to each medical service provider's banking institution (32) concurrently with an electronic transfer of the corresponding EOBs to the medical service provider's accounting system (34).

  • Publication number: 20130307715
    Abstract: Disclosed subject matter relates to techniques for predicting jamming effectiveness. In one approach, platform models and propagation models are used to predict maximum threat communication range when jamming is used and when jamming is not used. The maximum range information may then be used to calculate jammer effectiveness. In another approach, probability-based techniques are used to predict jamming effectiveness for a system of interest.

  • Publication number: 20110289845
    Abstract: Processes and apparatus for treating organic and inorganic materials in a metal bath contained in a high temperature reactor to produce synthesis gas are provided. Two or more feed materials that possess differing syngas generation potentials are mixed in a mixer and fed as a composite feed stream into a gasifier to produce syngas. The feed materials are prepared and analyzed for heat value prior to injection and the composition of materials in and exiting the reactor are monitored. By controlling the feed rate of the mixture into the gasifier as well as the feed rates of one or more of the individual feed materials into the mixer, the syngas is produced at a target production rate, with target energy content (BTU). Based upon the results of the analysis and monitoring, oxygen, steam, and/or other feed materials are also injected into the reactor, to control processing and synthesis gas quality.

  • Publication number: 20100035193
    Abstract: Power cycle generation equipment is operated in a more efficient and economical manner by using an uncooled (and potentially uncleaned) fuel gas supplied to the equipment directly from a gasification process, i.e., without first quenching or pressurizing the gas. In one embodiment, a burner used in conjunction with the power cycle generation equipment accepts such fuel gas directly from a syngas generator (or perhaps after particulate removal). The burner preferably operates with fuel gas and oxidizer inputs reversed as compared to existing configuration.
