Ras Al Khaimah, UAE (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Grace Century’s EHR (electronic health record) project with The Quantum Group, Inc., utilizing the technology platform, PWeR® 2.0, has received notice from their patent attorney stating that an examiner from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) had been in contact to advise them that their patent application # 12/506,659 “System and Methods for Personalized Fast Navigation” has successfully completed all reviews by the USPTO and is ready to be issued. The patent was originally filed as a non-provisional patent on July 21, 2009.
“This is the sixth (6th) patent issued or cleared for issuance to Quantum. Along with the other previously issued patents, we believe it will have tremendous impact on the healthcare industry in the U.S. and abroad,” said Scott Wolf, CEO of Grace Century.
The application of the “Personalized Fast Navigation Technique” or PFNT ™ (pronounced “per - f – net”) is designed to facilitate how people interact with computers, cell phones, tablets, etc. It was conceived by the Quantum engineering team as a way for users (in this case, doctors) to view, use and process information from multiple sources, to effect faster processing of information.
In a future PWeR platform design, a doctor will be able to pick an icon that will tell the entire story of a patient by just viewing the icons on a landing page. A doctor will also be able to select icons to instruct service staff to perform tasks and follow instructions, either by use of the keyboard, mouse, or finger. Quantum is creating a new form of shorthand between the human mind and complex systems.
Noel J. Guillama, President of The Quantum Group, Inc., and leader of the innovation team, commented on this latest patent to be issued, “We have developed an ergonomic advantage for a PWeR user to interface and rapidly navigate between the most critical components of a patient record. This new automated process design will be introduced into the PWeR platform in an upcoming version and will greatly magnify the information that decision makers can have before them. It can be adapted to any size screen, such that a uniform user interface can be maintained across a broad range of hardware. When making complex decisions, human beings still have a tremendous reasoning advantage over machines. This PFNT technique simply allows quick reference for human presence of mind to assimilate many facts rapidly into a diagnosis. We have created a new form of shorthand between the computer, human thought and existing medical practice toward resolving complex solutions.”
Quantum management sees this patent with applications way beyond healthcare and possibly used in real estate, industrial productions, e-commerce, financial services and banking, even into law and education.
Mr. Guillama further commented, “Mankind has spent thousands of years going from the age of Egyptian hieroglyphics to written letters and numbers, to binary codes; now we are back to the era where a simple icon or design can tell us an overall story and/or action to be taken. In combining the way in which we use icons, images and verbal instructions, we propose to use this innovation to change and enhance the process to make interaction between man and computer even faster and more accurate. A healthcare shortcut such as this will save both time and lives.”
Scott Wolf added, “We are proud of the portfolio of patents that Quantum continues to build and we believe the result is adding tremendous value to the Company which will ultimately benefit shareholders.”
In conjunction with Quantum’s other intellectual property, including now six (6) approved and 15 pending patents, Quantum is continuing to expand the science of healthcare. All of these innovations, as well as the creation of the PWeR® platform (Personal Wellness electronic Record ®), will facilitate the utilization of medical information gathered and shared in the $3 trillion dollar U.S. healthcare industry. This patent further confirms Quantum's place as an innovator in healthcare information technologies.
