  • 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: 9921731
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided to detect similarities in clinical documents that might be inaccurate or inappropriate. A first clinical document and a second clinical document that are to be compared are identified. This identification of the documents is based on times associated with the first and second clinical documents, an identity of clinicians who authored the first and second clinical documents, an identity of patients associated with the first and second clinical documents, a type of the first and second clinical documents, or contents of the first and second clinical documents. The first clinical document is compared to a portion of the second clinical document. A report is automatically generated, where the report indicates the similarities between the portion of the first clinical document and the portion of the second clinical document that are potentially inaccurate or inappropriate.

  • Patent number: 9911167
    Abstract: Certain examples provide methods, systems and apparatus of content-driven clinical information management. An example method includes facilitating authoring of content and combination of the content into a content-based application, wherein content represents a parameterization of instructions to instruct the content-based application how to operate, the content formulated according to one or more detailed clinical models. The example method includes packaging and deploying the content-based application using a processor to one or more targets for installation. The example method includes facilitating installation of the packaged content-based application at the one or more targets. The example method includes managing the content-based application remotely from the one or more targets. In the example method, content is to be created, stored, deployed, and retrieved independently of the creation and deployment of the content-based application consuming data based on the content.
