  • Patent number: 10096381
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating record matching and entity resolution and for enabling improvements in record linkage. A power-spectrum-based temporal pattern-specific weight may be incorporated into record linkage methods to enhance the record linkage accuracy and statistical performance. For example, in embodiments, a value-specific weight may be calculated from a population-based frequency of field-specific values or dichotomized values of selected phenotypic variables, and provides an opportunity to capture and measure the relative importance of specific values found in a field. A phenotypic bit-vector “fingerprint” pattern-specific weight or Bayesian power spectrum weight may be determined and incorporated into record linkage methods.

  • Patent number: 9996664
    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: 9991920
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system for dynamically modifying settings of a communication device based on an activity state of a user of the communication device. A data capturing module captures values corresponding to a plurality of physiological parameters associated to a plurality of activity states of a user. The values may be captured by using one or more wearable devices worn by a user. A configuration module enables the user to configure one or more rules and one or more events, to be triggered, corresponding to each of the one or more rules for modifying settings of the communication device. An activity state determining module determines an activity state, in real-time, from the plurality of activity states. An event triggering module triggers an event, of the one or more events, based on a rule configured corresponding to the activity state in order to dynamically modify the settings of the communication device.

  • Patent number: 9990471
    Abstract: The present invention includes various embodiments of a BSA system that facilitates the collection of relevant health-related data on a continuous basis, integrates such data with pertinent personal and aggregate information, enables users to purchase (directly and indirectly) health-related goods and services, and provides credit, discounts and other economic benefits in connection with such purchases that are determined dynamically based upon the nature and extent of users' interaction with the system. The BSA system facilitates a dynamic feedback process by continually monitoring user interaction and medical and financial behavior, which results in dynamic adjustments to their credit levels and offers of discounts and other promotions, which in turn incentivizes users to continue participating in the process (thereby modifying their system interactions and behavior, and thus perpetuating this feedback loop).

  • Patent number: 9977958
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for assisting a user in determining a medical condition in a subject from one or more medical images by presenting the user with a list of questions, LOQ, about the subject that are to be answered with an affirmative indication (Y), a negative indication (N) or an unknown indication (X) by input by the user. In response to receiving an answer to one question, the method presents the user with a ranked list of conditions, LOC, and also with an updated LOQ wherein at least the answered question has been removed i.e. the LOQ iteratively collapses or reduces in length. An earlier step of selecting a foundation observation, FO, about the subject reduces the initial LOQ and the possible conditions.

  • Patent number: 9974512
    Abstract: A method for determining a patient radiation and diagnostic study score associated with past diagnostic radiologic tests. In light of the obvious benefits of diagnostic radiology, the risks inherent in its use are often overlooked. Ionizing radiation, which is a component of much, but not all, diagnostic radiology, carries with it a small risk of inducing cancer every time it is used. This additional risk, known as “Lifetime Attributable Risk,” is layered on top of an individual's lifetime base risk of invasive cancer. The present method for determining a patient radiation and diagnostic study score provides right time, right place, and right format radiology information to assist providers in their medical decision-making. With greater awareness of recent study history, and individually contextualized risk and benefit considerations, providers are more likely to decrease their overall usage of diagnostic radiology and better counsel their patients on future risk.

  • Patent number: 9977867
    Abstract: System and method for reducing healthcare costs by improving care and encouraging healthy behaviors. A web-based or telephonic program using health plan sponsor funded financial incentives, offered to patients and providers for declaring or demonstrating adherence or providing a reason for non-adherence to performance standards. Financial incentives are contingent upon patient's and provider's agreement to allow the other to confirm or acknowledge the other's declaration or demonstration of adherence or non-adherence reason. Combining financial incentives with a set of checks and balances motivates participation in the program and adherence to the performance standards. Performance standards include evidence-based treatment guidelines, information therapy, wellness and prevention solutions, care management, and other methods proven to control costs by improving behaviors and healthcare.
