  • Patent number: 9652592
    Abstract: An approach for analyzing data collected by a sensor-enabled device over a network is provided. Specifically, in a typical embodiment, a set of usage data will be received from a device over a network. The set of usage data may be collected via at least one sensor integrated with the device, and the set of usage data may pertain to use of the device by a user. Regardless, the set of usage data will be compared to a set of diagnostic information stored in at least one computer storage device. The set of diagnostic information typically pertains to a condition (e.g., medical) treated by use of the device (e.g., dental, cardiac, renal, etc.). Based on the comparison, at least one determination (e.g., diagnosis, treatment plan, level of compliance with applicable standards, etc.) will be made and a set of reports will be generated based thereon.

  • Publication number: 20170116171
    Abstract: Data in different, respective ranges of spreadsheet file cells is compared, and a scope of a formula determined with respect to selected cells of the ranges of cells, wherein the formula pulls input data from selected cells of one range of cells and either pulls input data or generates output data to selected cells of the other range of cells. A review flag is automatically generated in association with data in a flagged cell in response to determining: that the flagged cell is omitted from a consecutive plurality of input data rows or columns; that the selected formula input cells are not consecutive within one of the ranges of cells; and that a high percentage of data values in corresponding cell rows or columns match but that and a location of the flagged cell is shifted from a corresponding cell within the other range.

  • Patent number: 9620950
    Abstract: A method includes sensing by multiple overload detection sensors connected to a power cord, a type of overload detection. The type of overload detection includes: thermal detection, voltage drop detection, and current reading detection. The method further includes powering the overload detection sensors from a same power supply as the electrical power cord by direct wiring or inductive coupling. An overload detection is triggered by one or more actionable events including: a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) trip, a visual signal, an audible alarm, radio frequency identification (RFID) communication signaling, a wired or wireless communication.

  • Patent number: 9483929
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a power cord and multiple overload detection sensors connected to the power cord based on a type of overload detection. The type of overload detection includes one or more of: thermal detection, voltage drop detection, and current reading detection. The overload detection sensors are powered from a same power supply as the electrical power cord by direct wiring or inductive coupling. An overload detection triggers one or more actionable events powered by the power cord. The actionable events include circuitry for one or more of: a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) trip, a visual signal, an audible alarm, radio frequency identification (RFID) communication signaling, a wired or wireless communication.
