A genuine opportunity exists to reform medical and long-term care systems to be more responsive to people's needs and preferences and provide efficient, cost-effective care delivery. California is preparing to test models of integration for those dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid that aim to improve care while managing costs. The SCAN Foundation has created a conceptual framework for guiding investments in California and beyond that is intended to create a more "person-centered"system that integrates medical care and supportive services. This article describes the foundation's vision and framework for creating a more person-centered system and its support of California's efforts in achieving this goal.

A system and method for determining eligibility for reimbursement for medical claims for patients may be implemented with computer software which compares a service providers patient information against a benefit providers database of covered persons to determine if the patient is eligible for benefits. The service provider records may be compressed by grouping all of the medical claims relating to a particular patient into one cluster represented by a composite medical claim, which may be used to query the benefit provider databases to determine if the patient is recognized. If the patient is recognized, every record within the cluster may be checked against the benefit providers database to determine whether one or more patient medical claims are eligible for reimbursement.

Methods and devices for improving measurements of test meter, and in particular for detecting a presence of an electrochemical sensor or strip in the test meter and a start time of an electrochemical reaction, are provided. In one exemplary embodiment of an electrochemical system includes an electrochemical sensor, a test meter, and a circuit. The circuit is configured to form an electrical connection with the electrochemical sensor such that the circuit can detect three distinct voltage ranges. The voltage ranges can be indicative of an absence of the electrochemical sensor, a presence of the sensor that is devoid of a sample, and a presence of the sensor with a sample. Test meters, methods for detecting when a sample starts to fill an electrochemical sensor for establishing when a reaction starts, and circuits for use with electrochemical strips, are also provided.

An optimized ACK-less (no acknowledgement required) communication between the client and the server is enabled. Regardless of distance between the client and server, complete synchronization between the mouse movement, or any other updates to the three-dimensional model, and the rendered result is attained. Maximum frame rate is also attained, without requiring the inefficiency, and resulting latency, of acknowledged packets

An SLI medical image sensor system captures one or more images of a skin lesion and generates a 3D surface map of the skin lesion using SLI techniques. A feature detection module processes the 3D surface map to detect certain characteristics of the skin lesion. Feature data of the skin lesion is generated such as size, shape and texture. A feature analysis module processes the feature data of the skin lesion. The feature analysis module compares the skin lesion to prior images and feature data for the skin lesion. The feature analysis module categorizes the skin lesion based on templates and correlations of types of features.

Tomographic data representing an imaged three-dimensional object is divided into macro blocks and filtered by visibility and presence in a projected frame of a rendered three-dimensional object to speed rendering of the object. The data are loaded and rendered in parallel for improved speed and capacity.

The software of the present invention provides a means for creating a file of unpaid claims for a service provider. The software is used to create one or more queries to compare information in the file of claims against records in a benefit providers database to determine the eligibility status of the claim. A file is created containing each claim for which a matching record in the benefit providers database is found, and the information from that matching record. A report can be generated from the file of matching claims and benefit provider records, so the claims can be submitted for payment by the service provider.

An SLI cosmetology image sensor captures one or more images of an anatomical feature and generates a 3D surface map of the anatomical feature using SLI techniques. A feature detection module processes the 3D surface map to detect certain characteristics of the anatomical feature. Feature data of the anatomical feature is generated such as size, shape and texture. A feature analysis module processes the feature data. The feature analysis module compares the anatomical feature to prior images and feature data for the anatomical feature. The feature analysis module categorizes the anatomical feature based on templates and correlations of types of features.
