  • Patent number: 10229425
    Abstract: A computer system includes a computer configured to access files ripe for surveys from a management system, and provide links to the files in the management system to work queues on survey terminals. The system also includes a data acquisition processor for receiving first and second feedback responses. The first feedback response is received by the data acquisition processor for an open claim. The second feedback response is received by the data acquisition processor after it receives the first feedback response. The system is configured to classify the first feedback response in one of two categories, one indicative of attention needed and one indicative of attention not needed, and to route a claim having an attention needed response to a second terminal.

  • Patent number: 10223668
    Abstract: A method and associated system for processing a search query to retrieve product information and offers that are customized for an end user. An electronic planogram including expected locations of a product in a retail store is generated. A received communication includes a query object, an approximate location of the product in the retail store, and a database search query. From a comparison between the approximate and expected locations of the product, an electronic message is generated to communicate, to employees of the retail store, that the product is misplaced in the retail store. The database search query is performed for retrieving product information offers that are customized for the end user. The query object and the electronic planogram are used to identify products that have been misplaced, maintain adequate inventory levels to meet customer demands, and track the location of products within the retail store.

  • Patent number: 10147502
    Abstract: A patient data exchange system comprises at least one device. Each of the devices implements an interface. When a device in the patient data exchange system publishes patient data, the device generates a metadata envelope that encapsulates the patient data. The metadata envelope conforms to a schema that defines allowable metadata attributes of the metadata envelope. When a device in the patient data exchange system receives a metadata envelope that conforms to the schema, the device determines, based at least in part on a metadata attribute of the metadata envelope, a particular patient data handling policy to apply to patient data encapsulated by the metadata envelope. In some instances, the metadata attribute indicates that authorization is required from an authorization service to access the patient data encapsulated by the metadata envelope.

  • Patent number: 10080519
    Abstract: A system for monitoring a patient for seizure activity may include one or more detection units. The detection units may include one or more electromyography sensors configured to evaluate a patient for seizure activity. The detection units may further include one or more sensors configured to detect an orientation of the patient and/or when a sensor is bearing a portion of the patient's weight or otherwise pressed against the patient. In some embodiments, methods of detection may include adjusting an algorithm for seizure detection based on a recognition of whether a muscle is constrained or whether the muscle is free to move.

  • Patent number: 10067749
    Abstract: Various embodiments of systems and methods to generate consumer-oriented APIs from a UI model are described herein. In one aspect, a unique identifier is assigned to a node, and corresponding elements and actions of an ADM. The elements and actions associated with the node are mapped to one or more UI elements of an application UI using the assigned unique identifier. A service definition is derived from the UI elements and the UI actions by interacting with the application UI. Further, an API is generated based on the service definition. The generated API is independent from the application UI.

  • Patent number: 10068492
    Abstract: Computing system resources are controlled based on the behavioral attributes associated with users of the computing system. These behavioral attributes are monitored in real time and through a historical log, and behavioral attributes that fall outside pre-determined preferred behavioral parameters are detected. Access by the computing system user to computing system resources contained in a preferred and habitually accessed computing system resource set associated with the computing system user are adjusted in response to the detection of the behavioral attribute outside the pre-determined preferred behavioral parameters.

  • Patent number: 10061894
    Abstract: A health information management system is provided which includes the ability to identify explicit referral activity reported into a referral workflow system, infer referral activity not reported into the referral workflow system utilizing intent-based clustering of medical information, and generate reporting metrics from the inferred and explicit referral activity. Additionally, a referral suggestion may be generated for an identified condition. Physicians are selected within a geographic area who are properly specialized for the condition. This group is then filtered based upon patient preferences and default preferences in order to generate physician referrals.

  • Patent number: 10055435
    Abstract: A method, including storing, by a cluster including multiple server computers, a graph including vertices and edges distributed among the server computers, each of the server computers having a respective storage capacity within a range of storage capacities between a first storage capacity and a second storage capacity greater than the first storage capacity, the graph having a size greater than the second storage capacity. A vertex value indicating a set of virtual coordinates is computed for each of the vertices, and the respective set of virtual coordinates for each of the vertices are stored to a database. Upon receiving, from a host computer, a request indicating a subset of the vertices, respective sets of virtual coordinates for the requested subset of the vertices are retrieved from the database, and the retrieved sets of virtual coordinates are conveyed, to the host computer.
