Application: Network-wide supervision in a hierarchically-segmented blockchain network (Patent ID: US20230379177A1)

The patent filed by UnitedHealth Group Inc. introduces techniques for efficient and resilient network-wide supervision of a hierarchically-segmented blockchain network. The embodiments involve a centralized global ledger monitoring system that non-persistently monitors segment and local ledger systems through periodic chaincodes to verify targeted transactions during specific transactional junctures. This approach enables targeted monitoring of the blockchain network, ensuring efficiency and resilience in network-wide supervision.

The computer-implemented method and apparatus described in the patent focus on enabling low-bottleneck network-wide supervision of local ledger server systems in a hierarchically-segmented blockchain network. By identifying segment ledger systems, service entries, and service output cost measures, the system generates service ledger entries and service endpoint document data objects. These objects are endorsed by a global ledger monitoring system through validation chaincodes, facilitating the updating of segment-wide service output cost distribution measures. Additionally, the method includes provisions for resource fields, local resource ledgers, and smart contract transactional protocol data objects to ensure accurate monitoring and management of network segments. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive system for efficient and resilient supervision of hierarchically-segmented blockchain networks through centralized monitoring and validation mechanisms.
