Each of the patents recently awarded contributes to streamlining and improving healthcare delivery. For example, one of the patents is for an application that connects electronic health records (EHRs) to various wellness applications to provide patients frictionless goal-tacking functionality, which directly leads to a higher level of patient engagement. Another application enables API calls from EHRs to initiate searches over genetic testing data stores. A patent was also issued for an application that helps organizations secure data in a HIPAA-compliant manner that will not cause performance issues that are often associated with typical encryption practices.
