|20090012871||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR REDUCING CONSUMPTION OF ADDICTIVE COMMODITIES - A method of controlling consumption of a commodity, particularly an addictive commodity, includes issuing a license, in advance of any purchase, to a purchaser of the commodity. The license allows purchase of a specified quantity of the commodity within a specified time period. The license is issued for a license fee that is set according to a schedule that divides the specified quantity into ranges, and charges different per unit base fees for purchases in different ones of those ranges. When a purchase is made, the license is checked to see if the purchase is allowed, and then updated to reflect the quantity purchased. Excessive consumption may be penalized by charging a higher rate for a new license in the same period, while surrender of one's license may be rewarded with incentives. The license fee may include the purchase price of the licensed quantity of the commodity.||01-08-2009|
|20080288282||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR REDUCING THE INCIDENCE OF DEFENSIVE MEDICINE - Methods and systems are described that implement evidence-based schemata in a health care system that embody practice guidelines and/or a standard of care. Physicians in the health care system agree to adhere to the practice guidelines. An insured patient transfers the right to sue a physician malpractice to a neutral third party and receives medical care in compliance with the practice guidelines. The insured patient may be subject to incentives and disincentives to encourage compliance with the transfer agreement. Shielding the physician from lawsuits will give the physician an incentive to abandon the practice of “defensive medicine.” This will significantly reduce the number of diagnostic tests and procedures and associated risks and expenses. Such a system can promote cost-efficiency, increase safety and provide fair remedies to patients who are injured, regardless of the cause.||11-20-2008|
