  • Patent number: 9773092
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an inventory management system that offers significant improvement over existing systems by automating requests to restock inventory. The present disclosure details an inventory management system that provides real time visibility to stock levels and streamlines materials management activities, while addressing the issues of human resource misallocations, inaccurate inventory data management and related out of stock conditions. Moreover, the system of the present disclosure promotes a high level of confidence in inventory data that enables on-hand inventory levels to be reduced, thereby reducing costs and waste.

  • Publication number: 20160019367
    Abstract: A medication storage and dispensing workstation for use in a medication management system administering the inventory and distribution of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies in a healthcare environment is disclosed. The workstation incorporates a linear drawer assembly having a plurality of discrete, removable, storage modules for containing medications and/or other medical supplies. The storage modules are arranged in a linear array extending longitudinally along the travel path of the linear drawer assembly. Each storage module, in turn, comprises a drawer that is extensible laterally relative to the linear arrangement of the storage modules. As such, the drawer assemblies comprise a compartmentalized “drawer-in-drawer” arrangement that provides an efficient use of storage space and enables a user to utilize the workstation in a workspace having a smaller footprint that traditional storage cabinet apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20160006992
    Abstract: A mobile computer workstation includes a base assembly including a plurality of wheels, an adjustable column assembly mounted to the base assembly and adapted to support a computer monitor, and a camera configured to communicate a video signal, the camera being mounted on the workstation such that a line of sight of the camera is directed rearward from the computer monitor. The workstation further includes a computing device stored within the workstation operatively coupled to the camera and the computer monitor. The computing device is configured to determine whether the workstation is moving based on a comparison of a sensed motion of the workstation and a predetermined motion threshold and, in response to the comparison, initiate the camera, receive the video signal from the camera, and display the video signal on the computer monitor.

  • Publication number: 20150042217
    Abstract: A storage device having discrete drawers includes a housing having a frame assembly. A drawer assembly is movably received in the housing. A cover is fixedly mounted atop the drawer assembly preventing access to the contents of the drawer assembly. The drawer assembly is further divided into at least two discrete compartments. An actuator is connected to the frame assembly, the actuator operating to move the drawer assembly along a drawer slide slidably outward from the housing. At least two second actuators are connected to said drawer assembly, each actuator operating to move one of the at least two discrete compartments outward from the drawer assembly such that the cover does not move along with the compartment.

  • Patent number: 8095689
    Abstract: A remote activation device for enabling WOL capability in a target computer that is not connected to a wired network is disclosed. The remote activation device is WOL compatible and simulates a network host computer using WOL technology for “waking-up” the target computer. The remote activation device generally comprises a microcontroller and a communications controller. The device is connected to the target computer via the communications controller of the device and a wired network adapter of the target computer. As such, the remote activation device forms a “mini-network” with the target computer. The remote activation device generates and sends a WOL magic packet to the target computer instructing the computer to power ON. Once the computer is powered ON, the computer is able to wirelessly connect to a WLAN in the target computer's work environment. A computer administrator is then able to manage the target computer via network host computer.
