Fair Value Disclosures [Abstract]  
Fair Value Measurements Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification requires the use of valuation techniques that are consistent with the market approach, the income approach and/or the cost approach. Inputs to valuation techniques refer to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Inputs may be observable, meaning those that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from independent sources, or unobservable, meaning those that reflect the Company's own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. In that regard, the Topic establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs that give the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs.
The fair value hierarchy is as follows:
Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date.
Level 2: Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that reflect the Company's own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.
The following table summarizes the financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis segregated by the level of valuation inputs within the fair value hierarchy utilized to measure fair value (in thousands):

At December 31, 2019, the Company had a liability payable to VenturEast from a prior acquisition. The liability to VenturEast was settled during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 with 3 thousand shares of common stock at a value of $4.20 per common share and following two payments of $50 thousand. The cash payments were recorded in general and administrative expense on the consolidated statement of operations and other comprehensive loss. During the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized gains of approximately $0 and $5 thousand, respectively, due to the change in value of the note. During nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized gains of approximately $4 thousand and $12 thousand, respectively, due to the change in value of the note.

At September 30, 2020, the warrant liability consists of stock warrants issued as part of the 2016 Offerings that contain contingent net settlement features. In accordance with derivative accounting for warrants, the Company calculated the fair value of warrants and the assumptions used are described in Note 10, “Fair Value of Warrants.” During the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized gains (losses) of approximately $(19) thousand and $34 thousand, respectively, on the derivative warrants due to the increase or decrease in its stock price. During nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized gains of approximately $133 thousand and $233 thousand, respectively, on the derivative warrants due to the decrease in its stock price.

At September 30, 2020, the earn-out amount from siParadigm was fixed and no longer subject to fair value accounting.

Realized and unrealized gains and losses related to the change in fair value of the earn-out receivable from siParadigm, VenturEast note and warrant liability are included in other income (expense) on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Other Comprehensive Loss.

The following table summarizes the activity of the earn-out receivable from siParadigm, the note payable to VenturEast and of the Company's derivative warrants, which were measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs (in thousands):
