  • Patent number: 11967428
    Abstract: A predictive model can be applied to data representing a history of events for an entity to compute a value indicative of an outcome related to a reference time for that entity. The effect of an event from an entity's history of events on an outcome for the entity at a reference time can vary based on the type of event and relative time of that event with respect to the reference time. The effect of an event from an entity's history of events on an outcome for the entity also can vary due to other characteristics of the entity in combination with the event. These effects are captured as weights. For an entity, functions of sets of events from the history of events are computed for the entity and a set of weights for events. The computed results are inputs to the predictive model.

  • Patent number: 11830259
    Abstract: State information can be determined for a subject that is robust to different inputs or conditions. For drowsiness, facial landmarks can be determined from captured image data and used to determine a set of blink parameters. These parameters can be used, such as with a temporal network, to estimate a state (e.g., drowsiness) of the subject. To improve robustness, an eye state determination network can determine eye state from the image data, without reliance on intermediate landmarks, that can be used, such as with another temporal network, to estimate the state of the subject. A weighted combination of these values can be used to determine an overall state of the subject. To improve accuracy, individual behavior patterns and context information can be utilized to account for variations in the data due to subject variation or current context rather than changes in state.

  • Patent number: 11710554
    Abstract: A method for developing codes and a cross functional set of rules that suggest to a physician, in real-time, potential diagnoses related to diagnostic results or other clinical data entered into the electronic Medical Record (EMR). The method generates a possible diagnosis for consideration and addition to the patient problem list. When the physician selects a suggested diagnosis, the problem list is automatically updated with the diagnosis. In view of the above, the physician has the needed information at the point of care so that the timeliness, safety and quality of care is improved. The generated documentation also assists other physicians throughout the continuum of care for the Patient. The method creates crosswalk from data element to diagnosis to enhance the completeness of documentation. As a result, the Diagnostic Related Group (DRG) is more accurately assigned by coders at discharge to drive more accurate and efficient billing for improved reimbursement and revenue.
