A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11915198B2) outlines a method for healthcare data management involving the use of multiple sensors to monitor various health parameters of a patient. The method includes receiving a request for healthcare data from a user device operated by a healthcare provider, with the data generated by sensors configured to meet specific requirements associated with the request. The generated healthcare data, including patient identifiers and synchronized data streams representing monitored health parameters, is then provided to the user device through a user interface, accessible via an application programming interface (API) over the Internet. The system also includes provisions for generating alerts in response to critical health conditions, filtering data, and ensuring data privacy by removing identifiers before access.

Furthermore, the patent describes a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium and a system that implement similar operations for managing healthcare data. The system comprises a user device, servers in communication with the device, and multiple sensors monitoring patient health parameters. The servers receive requests for healthcare data, collect data from sensors, and provide access to the data through a user interface, including an API for mobile device access. The system also incorporates features such as data filtering, synchronization of data streams, and the removal of patient identifiers to ensure privacy. Overall, the patented method and system offer a comprehensive approach to managing healthcare data efficiently, ensuring data accuracy, accessibility, and privacy in a healthcare provider setting.
