A computerized method for automated device efficacy determination for multiple monitor devices has been granted a patent (Publication Number: US11929163B1). The method involves receiving device and member information, generating keys, and authorizing data streams from the devices. These data streams include health data values sensed by the monitors, which are then transformed into standardized attributes. A personalized micro-engine is used to determine health status values of members based on the data, aggregating them to assess device efficacy against a threshold.

The method further includes features such as determining reimbursement rates for vendors based on device efficacy, displaying outcomes on a digital portal, and restricting access to devices based on efficacy. The physical measurements involved in the process include blood pressure, step count, weight, body mass index, blood glucose, among others. The system also utilizes a blockchain key ledger to store keys and standardized attributes, ensuring secure and efficient processing. The method aims to provide a comprehensive and automated approach to evaluating the effectiveness of multiple monitor devices in improving health status, with potential implications for personalized healthcare and vendor performance assessment.
