  • Patent number: 11642939
    Abstract: A capsule of a volatile substance distribution system is configured for use with a base unit having a fan and an air outlet configured to direct air driven by the fan away from the base unit. The capsule includes a housing that extends along a longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end. The first end defines an inlet port and the second end defines an outlet port. The housing houses a volatile substance member. The capsule further includes an outlet seal member that seals and unseals the outlet port. The housing, when engaged with the base unit and with the outlet seal member in the unsealed position, is configured to receive the air from the air outlet that flows into the inlet port, past the volatile substance member, and out of the outlet port.

  • Patent number: 11413938
    Abstract: A capsule for a volatile substance distribution system includes a housing having a first end and a second end and that defines a longitudinal axis that extends between the first end and the second end. The capsule also includes an inlet port disposed proximate the first end and an outlet port disposed proximate the second end. Additionally, the capsule includes a volatile substance member within the housing. The first end is configured to be removably supported by a base unit with the inlet port fluidly connecting with an air outlet of the base unit for receiving an airflow from the air outlet that moves into the housing and across the volatile substance member as the airflow flows from the inlet port to the outlet port. The inlet port is defined by a tapered inlet surface that directs the airflow radially with respect to the longitudinal axis.

  • Publication number: 20210398077
    Abstract: Systems and methods for searching for a healthcare provider based on an automatically-identified search context are provided. In one embodiment, a method comprises processing raw medical claims to identify an area of focus for a provider, associating the provider with the area of focus, receiving, from a user via a user device, a search query indicating a desired area of focus, and outputting, to the user device for display to the user, provider information of the provider if the desired area of focus comprises the area of focus. In this way, an area of focus of a provider may be automatically determined from raw claims data, and such an automatically-determined area of focus may be used to refine search results for users.
