Claim of US Patent No. 10,510,439

1. An apparatus programmed for processing healthcare information, the apparatus comprising:an electronic computer processor;
an electronic screen display operatively associated with the processor, the processor programmed for:
displaying data associated with a patient on the screen display, and
navigating from a first screen to a second screen displayed on the screen display, wherein only one screen is visible on the screen display at any point in time, in response to receiving a manual swipe on the screen display from a user; and
the processor further programmed to:
receive data from across multiple computer systems containing information associated with the selected patient data,
capture data associated with multiple events associated with the selected patient data from the multiple computer systems, wherein the events include a plurality of micro-events,
display on the screen display:
a list of providers associated with the selected patient data,
at least one graph representative of an interaction between two or more of the multiple computer systems and the selected patient data, wherein at least one of the interactions describes a relationship between a plurality of providers and the selected patient data,
data indicative of provider availability within a clinical situation involving provider data stored in the multiple computer systems,
a graphical representation of at least one latent tie associated with provider data contained in the multiple computer systems and the selected patient data, wherein the latent tie exists in a deactivated state until the latent tie is activated by receiving data indicating communication between or among at least a portion of the providers,
a graphical representation of at least one direct tie associated with provider data contained in the multiple computer systems and the selected patient data, wherein the direct ties and the latent ties are either permanent or transient for a period related to a specific episode of care, and
a graphical representation of at least one meta-event associated with occurrence of a plurality of the captured micro-event data,
follow across multiple communication platforms and adjust a preferred communication mode according to a currently utilized device associated with the selected patient data,
capture at least a portion of the patient data through multiple external interfaces associated with the multiple computer systems,
receive at least a portion of the patient data from at least one application specific listener programmed to translate application events to at least one of the external interfaces, and,
connect, through a load balanced web farm, to a highly available database through a database interface for accessing at least a portion of the patient data.
