A method and system to provide multi-layered access control for healthcare datasets are disclosed. The method comprises defining an information policy for each of healthcare datasets, wherein the information policy comprises information access permissions. Further, an organization policy is defined for each of the healthcare datasets, wherein the organization policy comprises license permissions for organizations accessing the healthcare datasets. Thereafter, a user account master policy is defined for each of the healthcare datasets, wherein the user account master policy comprises account permissions assigned to users of the organizations. Subsequently, a master user policy is generated for each of the users based on the information policy, the organization policy, the user account master policy, or a combination thereof, wherein the master user policy comprises access control permissions to provide each of the users access to the healthcare datasets.

A computer implemented method for identifying records that deviate from a preferred prescribed course of care for a particular disease state includes receiving a transaction message including data related to a disease state and updating a database based on the received transaction message. Records related to a physician are identified within the updated database and records associated with a provider network are identified. A regional treatment plan for the disease state is determined based on the records related to the physician, and an impact record is generated based on the regional treatment plan for the disease state and the records associated with the provider network. Records that deviate from the preferred prescribed course of care are identified based on the impact record.

The disclosure generally describes computer-implemented methods, software, and systems for receiving and aggregating anonymized data reports about when prescribers provide wireless device applications to patients. The disclosure discusses ways of analyzing the data reports in combination with other electronic medical information to generate useful conclusions about scenarios in the health care process.


System and method to process a digital power of attorney (DPOA), the method including: receiving a request from the grantor to create a DPOA to name a predetermined grantee; transmitting the request to an authentication server in order to authenticate the request; receive an authentication result from the authentication server; and if the authentication server is positive, issuing the DPOA to the predetermined grantee. The method may further include receiving a request from a purported grantee or from a digital service provider to exercise the DPOA; authenticating, by the authentication server, an identity of the purported grantee; if the purported grantee is the predetermined grantee, verifying a condition of usage of the DPOA; and if the condition is verified, granting a power specified by the DPOA.

A computer-implemented method includes generating a matching rule defined by a user, where the matching rule is a clear text rule, and receiving a transaction message that includes patient data from one or more health care facilities, where the patient data includes one or more patient health care events. A custom extension to a relational database is generated based on the received patient data, and the generated matching rules is applied to the received patient data at the custom extension to the relational database. Related patient event records within the custom extension to the relational database are identified and the related patient event records are configured based on the applied matching rule.

Methods, system, and apparatus for verifying offline patient data. In one aspect, a method includes receiving, from a user, an input specifying field values for one or more data fields, receiving a reference file that specifies (i) one or more database rules for a particular dataset, (ii) for each database rule, a score that reflects the occurrence of the database rule within the particular dataset and a logical expression representing the application of the database rule to the particular dataset, comparing the field values specified by the input to the one or more database rules specified in the reference file, determining a confidence score associated with the received input specifying values for the one or more data fields based at least on comparing the field values specified by the input to the one or more database rules; and providing, for output, the confidence score associated with the received input.
