  • Publication number: 20100197513
    Abstract: A system, a method and a computer-readable medium are provided for associating a nucleic acid profile or proteomic profile with a patient state, to utilize a healthcare protocol or guideline for decision support, in which the patient state provides a description of a current status and a history of a patient, and the nucleic acid profile or proteomic profile is an analysis of characteristics including genetic constitution, gene expression, or modification of the protein content of the tissue or cell, all of which aid in diagnosis of the disease state of a patient. The nucleic acid profile or proteomic profile shows a molecular indicator of the patient state. The invention also provides a method for associating a stage in the healthcare protocol or guideline with the nucleic acid profile or proteomic profile.

  • Publication number: 20100063839
    Abstract: The invention relates to a molecular diagnostic decision support system (MD-DSS) for providing patient related information (PRI). A patient information database (EMJ), a data input section (DAT) with molecular diagnostic input data (MDx) about the patient, a clinical guideline database (CL), a knowledge database (KB) are part of the system. A middleware section allows input data (MDx) to be processed into patient related information (PRI) by a first (1DSM) and a second (2DSM) decision support mechanism using the patient information database (EMJ), the clinical guideline database (CL) and the knowledge database (KB). The first (1DSM) and the second (2DSM) decision support mechanism are operably coupled through the middleware (MW) so as to interact (10, 11) during the processing of the input data (MDx). Due to this coupling of the two decision support mechanisms patient data are more efficiently combined with input data (MDx), and a more comprehensive approach with respect to the patient is obtained.

  • Publication number: 20090027717
    Abstract: A system and method for transferring images among spectrum agile radio devices without the need to retransmit image data. The system and method of the invention encodes and transmits packets so as to permit the efficient recovery of image data that is lost during transmission without the need to retransmit the packets. Instead of encoding packets containing adjacent pixels and transmitting them line-by-line, the system and method of the present invention encodes and transmits packets containing pixels from non-adjacent areas of a frame. As a result, any losses that occur within an individual packet are distributed throughout the image rather than in a specific line or isolated region of the image. This permits the efficient recovery of image data that is lost during transmission without the need to retransmit the data.

  • Publication number: 20080312961
    Abstract: Variable and ambiguous factors in clinical guideline execution are further defined by prior expert medical scrutiny and testing. The definitions promote uniformity and ease of use, afford efficient interpretation by a medical device which can variably invoke the guideline (160) suited to the sensed current situation, and facilitate enterprise-wide administration of the rules under which a guideline for current operation is selected, preferably based on an ontology language (140). Guidelines are automatically deployed, and the deployment is managed. A patient care guideline formulated, medically approved and released includes logical structure (516) that has been specifically tailored to at least one value of at least one, but fewer than all, of a plurality of variables. Each of a set of clinical guidelines, including that guideline, is within a range of a function of the variables. A processor evaluates the function to select, from among the set, that guideline for current execution (S620).
