Patent
Humana Inc. | Date: 2016-11-21

An organization categorization system and method is disclosed. The organization categorization system and method relies on server data to discover which business organizations are consuming the finite resources of the server and in what proportions. Organizations are categorized according to their consumption of resources. The categorization system and method further ascribes a relative business value to each organization to facilitate the allocation of resources among the various organizations in a business. In an example embodiment, users of the server resources use the SAS programming language and the server resources execute SAS applications that support the SAS programming language. The organization categorization system and method connects an executed computer program to a business-defined classification of applicability to purpose. The system and method employs a double level of abstraction to link specific programming styles, first to a general solution case (design pattern), and then to link the general solution idiomatically to the business case.

A computerized pain visualization system and method. A web-based application and interface allows individuals to anonymously share information about where they hurt or specific regions of the body that are most worrisome to them. The web-based application comprises a visual interface that supports selection of parts or regions on an image of a human body. The data becomes viewable and filterable by geographic location, age, sex, or a variety of other data sets collected from the anonymous users. In an example embodiment, Users register and sign in at a web site. A selectable body interface is presented and the user is prompted to select one or more pain locations on the virtual body. The users selections are recorded in a database. Another page of the application presents a search option that facilitates searching and visualizing the data, filterable by users registration information.


A financial intermediary for electronic health claims processing is disclosed. The financial intermediary provides consolidated billing of healthcare provider charges for consumers. Consumers receive from the financial intermediary one itemized statement that provides a clear and aggregated view of past medical events and charges from one or more healthcare providers. The statement clearly identifies the consumers financial responsibility to the healthcare providers and a total amount owed to the providers. The consumer sends a single payment to the financial intermediary and the financial intermediary pays the healthcare providers. In one embodiment, medical events may be organized on the statement according to episodes of care. An episode of care identifier is assigned at the time of provider billing so that charges on a consolidated statement may be organized according to the identifiers. When the statement is generated, the charges are grouped according to identifiers for episodes of care.

A system and method for delivering a product such as a pharmacy bottle from a conveyor system to a delivery container via a delivery chute. A sensor is placed at a top opening of the chute to sense for product in the chute area and to provide instructions to complete the delivery order if the chute area is clear.

A pharmaceutical verification (PV) camera system that captures an image of the contents of a vial on an automated dispensing line is closed. Faster image processing time is achieved by utilizing a learning algorithm that stores camera parameters for a successful image associated with data for a prescription processed on the automated dispensing line. During processing of a prescription order, when the vial contents and availability of stored parameters is confirmed, the stored parameters are transmitted to the camera and an image of the vial contents is captured and stored. When a previously un-encountered or un-trained vial is detected, the camera engages the autofocus feature to capture an image. The learning algorithm evaluates the image based on feedback from one or more metric. Upon agreement with the metric standards, an image is accepted and archived and the camera parameters associated with that vial prescription are stored for later use.

An improved pharmaceutical vial processing system and method groups vials on an automated dispensing line according to diverting needs. The improved pharmaceutical vial processing system and method allows vials to travel in close groups. A diversion algorithm determines when gaps between vials are needed to reduce the likelihood that a mechanical diverting device engages the wrong vial to a new location on the dispensing line. The diversion algorithm identifies each vial that needs to be diverted to a target location and employs a neighbor analysis to determine whether a gap between neighboring vials is needed before a vial destined for the target station encounters a diverter. Vials that are destined for locations beyond the target station remain grouped. Vials that are behind a vial destined for the target station are held to introduce a gap between the vial destined for the target station and the remaining vials.

The present invention is a method of predicting the likelihood that chronic kidney disease will result in end stage renal disease requiring dialysis. The method uses various indicators comprising information specific to an individual as well as information representing characteristics of a population including demographic information, health care and prescription insurance claims, and involvement in various programs designed to improve the health of a user. The method applies a predictive algorithm to these indicators in order to derive a risk score indicating an individuals risk of dialysis.


Patent
Humana Inc. | Date: 2016-07-18

A system and method that generates a physiological imagery of one or more parts of a patients body are provided. The system and method combine one or more parameters relating to a particular part of the body and then generates the physiological imagery for the part of the body wherein the physiological imagery may have a characteristic that changes based on the state of the patient.
