  • Patent number: 11324570
    Abstract: The present invention provides digitally driven methods to conveniently and efficiently monitor and evaluate the positions of a patient's teeth during the course of orthodontic treatment. In an exemplary embodiment, an initial set of 3D digital data representing a patient's dental structure is provided by means of an X-ray radiograph and/or an intraoral scan. Then during the course of treatment, a reduced image representing part of the dental structure may be quickly provided using a bite plate or a low resolution intraoral scan. A three-dimensional (3D) image of the full dental structure is subsequently rendered or “reconstructed” by registering elements of the initial image with corresponding elements of the reduced image. By reconstructing the dental structure from the reduced image, the treating professional can provide a precise, manipulable 3D image of the patient's complete dental structure for diagnostic and treatment planning purposes.

  • Patent number: 11328088
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are disclosed for trust based access to records via encrypted protocol communications with an authentication system. An example system is configured to authorize and provide selective and secured access to sensitive medical information according to one or more trusted relationships. The system is configured to receive a request for access to a patient's health record from an outside entity. Authentication information associated with the outside entity is determined. Whether the outside entity is authorized to access the requested data is determined. The determination is based on existence of a trust relationship being established between the outside entity and the patient, the trust relationship established by an action of the patient or a patient's representative. Access to the patient's health record is enabled based on a positive determination.

  • Patent number: 11309077
    Abstract: Systems and methods directed to technological improvements in coordinated and distributed processing of intraoral scan data for fabricating clear aligners for dental realignment include an appointment management system that schedules an appointment at an intraoral scanning site and generates and causes transmission of a message to a computing device of a user. An intraoral scan that generates three-dimensional data of a mouth of the user is conducted at the intraoral scanning site using an intraoral scanner. Clear aligners that are specific to the user for repositioning the user's teeth are fabricated based on a treatment plan generated based on the three-dimensional data by thermoforming material over three-dimensional printed molds. The clear aligners are sent to the user all at once. The user receives orthodontic treatment without ever having physically seen a dentist or an orthodontist that approves the treatment plan.

  • Patent number: 11309066
    Abstract: Methods are provided for the surveillance and monitoring of a patient's medical care when the patient is treated at two or more medical organizations having different medical record systems. Patient information is received from a first medical organization and populated into an active risk assessment array that monitors the patient's risk for developing a particular disease or condition. Patient information is then received from a second medical organization and populated into the array. It is determined that actionable criteria have been met, and in response, a notification or alert is sent to the medical organizations indicating that the patient is at risk.

    Abstract: Method and apparatus for predicting beneficial clinical trials for patients. Embodiments include receiving one or more attributes of a first patient. Embodiments include selecting a potential clinical trial for the first patient, based on the one or more attributes. Embodiments include identifying a cohort of patients that are clinically similar to the first patient, based on the one or more attributes, wherein each patient in the cohort has undergone a respective trial that is either (i) the potential clinical trial, or (ii) a clinically similar clinical trial. Embodiments include determining, for each respective patient in the cohort, a respective outcome of the respective trial. Embodiments include generating a predicted outcome for the first patient, based on the respective outcomes for each patient in the cohort. Embodiments include refraining from recommending the potential clinical trial for the first patient, based on the predicted outcome.

  • Patent number: 11302449
    Abstract: A process that facilitates patient treatment management by allowing users to adhere to guidelines, best practices and medical procedures. For each individual patient the process software automatically recommends individualized treatment plans, medical tests that should be carried out, deviations or exceptions to recommended treatments and medical or clinical trials that the patient may be eligible to take part in. The process software will monitor and display in real time all patients being treated by a physician or at a hospital, surgery, clinic or other institution and display at what stage, test, specialty or procedure, or treatment each patient is currently located along a particular guideline, best practice or medical procedure and the cost included either at each stage or so far in the treatment path. The process software will also monitor and display for individual patient and in a consolidated manner financial, user and administrative information in real time.

  • Patent number: 11302429
    Abstract: An inbound message including medical record content may be received. The inbound message may indicate a healthcare entity and a vendor entity. It may be determined, from the healthcare entity and stored correspondences between medical record formats and healthcare entities, that the medical record content of the inbound message is in a first medical record format. Which configuration record of stored configuration records specifying combinations of sets of rules may be determined to apply as a translation to the inbound message based upon the medical record content of the inbound message and the first medical record format. The sets of rules as indicated by the configuration record may be accessed and applied to the inbound message to translate the medical record content in the inbound message from the first medical record format to the standardized format. The standardized format may be transmitted to the vendor entity.

  • Patent number: 11301758
    Abstract: A personal illness management system includes an extended semantic model of a health care knowledge domain, a semantic knowledge database for personal illness management, and an inference engine. The extended semantic model of a health care knowledge domain includes existing concepts related to personal illness management, existing relationships among the existing concepts, and inference logic embedded within each existing concept. The semantic knowledge database for personal illness management is distinct from the extended semantic model and includes existing nodes and existing links. The existing nodes represent instances of the existing concepts, and the existing links represent instances of the existing relationships among the existing concepts. The inference engine is knowledge domain independent and populates the semantic knowledge database with the instances of the existing concepts and the instances of the existing relationships by following the inference logic embedded within each existing concept.

In some implementations, the method includes obtaining, by the device, engagement data that indicates engagement of a plurality of devices with one or more content items of a plurality of content items. In some implementations, the method includes detecting, by the device, a first event associated with a first time that occurs after a current time. In some implementations, the method includes identifying, by the device, a first content item from the plurality of content items based on the engagement data. In some implementations, the first content item satisfies an engagement criterion associated with the first event. In some implementations, the method includes rendering, by the device, the first content item at a second time that occurs prior to the first time.
