  • Patent number: 10289949
    Abstract: In an approach to incident prediction and response, one or more computer processors receive one or more alerts corresponding to an incident. The one or more computer processors aggregate the one or more alerts with additional data corresponding to the incident. The one or more computer processors feed the aggregated data into a prediction model, where training of the prediction model uses associated independent stacked Restricted Boltzmann Machines utilizing one or more supervised methods and one or more unsupervised methods. The one or more computer processors determine, based, at least in part, on one or more calculations by the prediction model, at least one probability of the incident. The one or more computer processors determine whether the at least one probability exceeds a pre-defined threshold. In response to determining the at least one probability exceeds a pre-defined threshold, the one or more computer processors send at least one notification.

  • Patent number: 10269449
    Abstract: Provided herein are various systems and methods for improved report interaction and generation. A computing system receives selection of an exam for display on a display device, either from a user or as automatically determined by a computing device. The computing system may then determine an exam characteristic associated with the exam, such as an exam type. A data structure storing associations between exam characteristics and respective report packages, each of the report packages comprising a parent report and one or more child reports, may be accessed in order to select a report package associated with the determined exam characteristic. The child reports of the selected report package, which are configured to receive input from a user of the computing system that is usable in automatically generating content of the parent report of the selected report package, may be selectively displayed on the one or more displays.

  • Patent number: 10251582
    Abstract: Systems and methods provided relate to patient sensors and/or patient monitors that recognize and/or identify a patient with physiological signals obtained from the sensor. A scalogram may be produced by applying a wavelet transform for the physiological signals obtained from the sensor. The scalogram may be a three dimensional model (having time, scale, and magnitude) from which certain physiological information may be obtained. For example, unique human physiological characteristics, also known as biometrics, may be determined from the scalograms. More specifically, monitoring the changes in the morphology of the photoplethysmographic (PPG) waveform transforms (e.g., scalogram) may determine patient-specific information that may be used to recognize and/or identify the patient, and that may be used to determine a proper or improper association between the patient and the wireless sensor and/or patient monitor.

  • 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: 10120878
    Abstract: A data capturing system for use with aerial spherical imagery is provided. The system allows for capturing and tracking of data with respect to those accessing and viewing particular aerial spherical imagery, such as the imagery on a GIS map. The data capturing system may include a server having a processor and a memory and a software application providing instruction to the server to display aerial spherical imagery, such as spherical imagery, to a user through a network connection, such as through the Internet. For example the system may provide the map as a website to the user that is displayed on a remote computing device accessible by the user in order to view the spherical imagery. Data related to the interaction of the user with the website is captured and tracked in order to use such data for other purposes.

  • Patent number: 10108975
    Abstract: The technology described herein relates to using predictions about patients' future health care utilization and/or outcomes (e.g., patients' expected future adherence to medication regimens) and the expected economic benefits of targeted improvements in the same utilization and/or outcomes (e.g., reduced likelihood of hospitalization attributable to more consistent medication use) to implement more effective and efficient health care improvement programs. The technology described here computes which subset of patients should be included in a value-based health care provider payment scheme and what the specific bonus payment amounts should be such that expected benefits from better patient outcomes, once realized, are greater than the expected costs of the payment scheme itself.
