Patenting telehealth technologies for patient support refers to the process of securing legal rights to innovative ways of using technology to deliver remote healthcare and improve how patients are supported.

AI-powered Patient Stratification and Care Coordination

This technology personalizes care plans by tailoring telehealth interventions to specific patient needs. Imagine an AI system analyzing data to identify a patient at risk for developing diabetes. It could then automatically trigger a remote glucose monitoring program and connect them with a diabetes educator via telehealth. Automation recommending appropriate interventions, the system could simplify billing by ensuring services align with patient needs. Pre-populated diagnoses and procedures based on AI analysis could further streamline coding. The system might require integration with credentialing databases to verify the qualifications of telehealth providers recommended for specific patient needs.

Blockchain-based Secure Medical Record Sharing and Credentialing:

Patients have greater control over their health data and can easily share it with authorized providers for telehealth consultations. This empowers patients and fosters trust in the telehealth system. Secure data sharing facilitates accurate billing by ensuring providers have access to complete medical records to generate appropriate codes. Integrating verification of healthcare provider credentials within the platform ensures patients receive care from qualified professionals during telehealth visits. This strengthens trust and potentially streamlines insurance approvals.

Federated Learning for Privacy-Preserving AI in Telehealth

Traditional AI for patient stratification often requires centralizing vast amounts of patient data, raising privacy concerns. Federated learning allows distributed AI models to be trained directly on patient devices without sharing the actual data. This protects patient privacy while enabling AI-powered care coordination. Patients retain control over their data while benefiting from AI-driven telehealth interventions tailored to their specific needs. Federated learning can anonymize data used for AI training, potentially simplifying compliance with healthcare data privacy regulations.

Explainable AI for Telehealth Interventions

Current AI systems often function as black boxes, making it difficult for patients to understand how AI recommendations are made. Explainable AI allows the system to provide clear justifications for its suggestions. Patients gain trust and confidence in the AI by understanding the reasoning behind its recommendations. This empowers them to make informed decisions about their care plans. Explainable AI could improve the accuracy of billing by explicitly linking the recommended interventions to specific patient needs and diagnoses identified by the AI.

Augmented Reality (AR) Integration for Remote Procedures and Patient Education

Integrate AR technology into telehealth platforms to provide real-time visual guidance during remote procedures (e.g., wound care, medication administration) or enhance educational materials (e.g., showcasing anatomical structures). AR can improve patient comprehension of instructions and procedures, leading to better self-care and treatment adherence. This empowers patients to actively participate in their healthcare. AR-assisted remote procedures could potentially reduce the need for in-person visits, impacting billing practices. Additionally, AR educational tools could lead to fewer complications and readmissions, reducing overall healthcare costs.

Biometric Authentication and Continuous Patient Monitoring for Telehealth Security

Implement multi-factor authentication using biometrics (facial recognition, fingerprint scan, voice recognition) for secure access to telehealth consultations. Integrate wearable devices for continuous patient monitoring during telehealth visits to track vital signs and detect potential health emergencies. Biometric authentication strengthens security and reduces the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive health information. Continuous monitoring allows for real-time patient assessment and early intervention during telehealth consultations. Biometric authentication ensures proper billing by verifying patient identity. Continuous monitoring data could be used to justify the necessity of telehealth consultations for billing purposes.

Telehealth Platforms with Built-in Social Support Networks

Design a telehealth platform that fosters patient interaction and creates a sense of community for those managing similar chronic conditions. This could involve forums, chat rooms, or support groups specifically for telehealth users. Patients connect with peers who understand their challenges, fostering emotional well-being and providing valuable support that complements medical care. Social support networks within the platform could potentially reduce the need for frequent individual consultations, impacting billing practices. However, ensuring proper integration with existing billing systems would be crucial.

In conclusion, hold the potential to revolutionize telehealth by addressing privacy concerns, empowering patients, and fostering a more holistic approach to remote healthcare delivery. Focusing on these roots’ aspect, can develop patentable technologies that make a significant contribution to the future of telehealth patient support.
