characteristics of the patients within each portfolio, we have concluded that the financial statement effects are not materially different than if accounting for revenue on a contract-by-contract basis.
For the contracted portfolio, we have historical experience of collecting substantially all of the negotiated contractual rates and determined at contract inception that these customers have the intention and ability to pay the promised consideration. As such, we are not providing an implicit price concession but, rather, have chosen to accept the risk of default, and adjustments to the transaction price are recorded as bad debt expense.
For our non-contracted portfolio, we are providing an implicit price concession because we do not have a contract with the underlying payor, the result of which requires us to estimate our transaction price based on historical cash collections utilizing the expected value method. Subsequent adjustments to the transaction price are recorded as an adjustment to Healthcare segment revenue and not as bad debt expense.
We have not made any significant changes to judgments in applying ASC 606 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.
Clinical Trial Support and Related Services Revenue (Research segment)
Research revenue is generated by providing centralized core laboratory services, including cardiac monitoring, imaging services, scientific consulting and data management services for drug and medical device trials. These amounts are due from pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations. We bill our customers after services are performed. Under a typical contract, some customers pay us a portion of our fee upon contract execution as an upfront refundable deposit. Upfront deposits are deferred and then recognized as the services are performed. If a contract is canceled prior to service being provided, the upfront deposit is refunded.
Performance obligations are determined based on the nature of the services provided by us. Our core laboratory services are provided over time as the customer receives benefits resulting in revenue recognition over the term of the contract. Our research customer contracts have legally enforceable terms that are predominately thirty days due to termination for convenience clauses, which are held by the customer with no significant penalty. Given the short-term nature of these contracts and the structure of our billing practices, our billing practices approximate our performance if measured by an output method, where each output is an individual occurrence of each performance obligation. Accordingly, we utilize the invoice practical expedient as defined in ASC 606, resulting in recognition of revenue in the amount that we have the right to invoice.
We determine the transaction price based on the fixed consideration in our contractual agreements with our customers and allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation based on our relative stand-alone selling prices. We determine the relative stand-alone selling price utilizing either the adjusted market assessment or the cost-plus margin approach depending upon the type of contract.
We have not made any significant changes to judgments in applying ASC 606 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.
Technology Devices, Consumable and Related Service Revenue (Other category)
