  • Patent number: 10032217
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for reconciliation needed to enable access to accelerated contribution funded accounts (CFAs). An embodiment operates by configuring a management database to store a linked CFA associated with a CFA and a CFA on demand (CFAOD). A contribution processing system of a provider may receive a contributions file from an employer. The contribution processing system may delay contribution reconciliation of the linked CFA until a contribution amount is received. During contribution reconciliation, the contribution processing system may resolve the CFAOD using the received contribution amount such that the amount borrowed is minimized before funding the CFA with a remaining contribution amount. Upon resolution of the CFAOD, the contribution processing system may concurrently send information to a bank server and a card server to reconcile the respective bank and card accounts with the linked CFA at the provider.

  • Patent number: 9996674
    Abstract: A cosmetic regimen and/or a nutrition regimen is outputted almost instantly to a user who transmits a digital color image, preferably video, of the surface tissue, for example at the face of a human to a web site. The regimen is custom tailored to the surface tissue type of the subject. The surface tissue type is based on value ranges of multiple surface tissue bioparameters, such as surface tissue moisture, surface tissue collagen levels, surface tissue pH and surface tissue sun sensitivity. The system may track changes in the surface tissue parameters between one digital color image provided by a user at one time and a further digital color image provided later.

  • Patent number: 9997260
    Abstract: A method of retrieving similar patient cases from a medical database includes matching a current patient case against a plurality of clinical profiles resulting in a set of matching clinical profiles. The method further includes determining a degree of membership of the current patient case in each clinical profile from the set of matching clinical profiles based upon a degree of match between the current patient case and the clinical profile. For at least one clinical profile from the set of matching clinical profiles, the method includes retrieving those similar patient cases from the medical database that have a substantially corresponding degree of membership as the current patient case.

  • Patent number: 9996666
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a matching-engine system may receive a set of physician-selection parameters from an administrator. The physician-selection parameters may comprise a range of acceptable performance-scores and experience-scores for physicians. The matching-engine system may receive, from a user, a search query comprising a geographic location of the user, a preferred date and time for an appointment, and a user-specified symptom or a user-specified treatment. A first set of physicians may be determined based on a geographic location of each physician, a performance-score associated with the physician with respect to a base-concept associated with the search query, and an experience-score associated with the physician with respect to the base-concept. A second set of physicians is identified from the first set based on one or more physician preferences, the preferred date and time, and an indication of whether the physician is available at the preferred date and time.

  • Patent number: 9990411
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein relate to an improved system and method for defining and reconfiguring process flows for one or more processes within an organization visually in a graphical display at a client system using a process flow diagram comprising activity elements and decision elements representing the activities and decisions to be performed during execution of a process flow. Modifications to the process flow diagram at the client display can be saved and used to update the process flow. The process flow definitions and/or reconfigurations can be supplied to a server for storage in a database, and can be later accessed during execution of the process flow. During execution of the sequence of activities of a particular process flow, the server can access one or more services from a plurality of different service modules in communication with the server to provide those services.

  • Patent number: 9984205
    Abstract: An example method includes storing healthcare information related to a patient on the cloud-based clinical information system and determining if a first local information system of a first healthcare entity includes a first existing patient record associated with the patient. The example method also includes communicating a first command from the cloud-based clinical information system to an edge device located at a facility associated with the first healthcare entity and in communication with the first local information system. The edge device is to automatically attach a first portion of the healthcare information to the first existing patient record if the first local information system includes the first existing patient record or automatically generate a first new patient record to be populated by the first portion of the healthcare information if the first local information system does not include the first existing patient record based on the first command.

  • Patent number: 9985933
    Abstract: The proliferation of personal computing devices in recent years, especially mobile personal computing devices, has led to increased concerns regarding the safety and security of documents and messages that are sent over networks. Users desire a system that provides for the setting of custom, content-agnostic, permissions at a message, document, and/or sub-document-level through communications networks. Such a system may allow users to apply customized privacy settings and encryption keys differently to particular parts of documents and/or messages. Such a system may also allow the user to manipulate outgoing message objects of pre-existing formats, so as to “hide” the encrypted document and/or message content within one or more portions of the message object that are not displayed in existing message viewer applications, e.g., metadata fields or unused headers. As such, only authorized message viewing applications may know where to look for (and have the necessary keys to decrypt) such hidden content.

  • Patent number: 9984415
    Abstract: An insurance policy management computing system (201) stores a legally-binding insurance policy as a read-only document including the complete policy history. To facilitate revisions to the policy, the computing system (201) provides an opportunity (202) to revise an insurance policy and recalls (203) the currently legally-binding insurance policy. Since the legally-binding insurance policy is a read-only document, the computing system (201) uses the legally-binding policy to generate an editable version that is a complete copy of the legally-binding policy. Once the editable version of the insurance policy has been generated, the input revisions can be incorporated into the policy and then, the revised version of the insurance policy is saved as a read-only, now-current version of the insurance policy. The new legally-binding insurance policy has a new creation and effective dates of the various policy elements.

  • Patent number: 9977866
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method comprises receiving a set of parameters for selecting a physician from an administrator of a matching-engine system. The matching-engine system stores the parameters in a data store of the matching-engine system. The matching-engine system receives from a user a search query with a location of the user and a user-specified symptom or treatment. The matching-engine system determines a base-concept of a medical diagnosis or medical procedure based on the search query. The matching-engine system may identify a set of physicians to be recommended to the user based on the parameters, and a performance-score and experience-score associated with the base-concept for each physician. The matching-engine system may send a search-results page to the user listing the recommended physicians.
