  • Publication number: 20210096957
    Abstract: One or more processors scan to identify component resources of a record retention system and determine relationships among the component resources and data stored on the component resources. Rules corresponding to retention of record data stored on the component resources are received, and a deletion action is determined in response to receiving a request by a user for deletion of record data from the record retention system and the rules corresponding to the retention of data. The one or more processors perform the deletion action on the user's record data associated with the request and compliant with the rules corresponding to the retention of the data among the component resources of the record retention system, and the one or more processors record the deletion action and information associated with the deletion action in a deletion log of the record retention system.

  • Patent number: 10614092
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for implementing operation optimization. Responsive to a request to load data via a input/output (I/O) load operation, prior to loading the data, transformed data in a local memory is searched for a match to the requested data. Responsive to identifying transformed that matches the requested data, the transformed data in the local memory is used to fulfill the request. Responsive to failing to identify transformed data in the local memory that matches the requested data, untransformed data in the local memory is searched for a match to the requested data. Responsive to identifying untransformed data that matches the requested data, the untransformed data in the local memory is used to fulfill the request. Responsive to failing to identify untransformed data in the local memory that matches the requested data, the requested data may be loaded from the storage system via the I/O load operation.

  • Patent number: 10467036
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for dynamic metering adjustment for service management of a computing platform. For example, a plurality of virtual machines are provisioned across a plurality of computing nodes of a computing platform. Data samples are collected for a metric that is monitored with regard to resource utilization in the computing platform by the virtual machines. The data samples are initially collected at a predefined sampling frequency. The data samples collected over time for the metric are analyzed to determine an amount of deviation in values of the collected data samples. A new sampling frequency is determined for collecting data samples for the metric based on the determined amount of deviation. The new sampling frequency is applied to collect data samples for the metric, wherein the new sampling frequency is less than the predefined sampling frequency.

  • Publication number: 20190333274
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for implementing an augmented reality display via a head mounted display (HMD) system that indicates areas of a patient's body corresponding to a medical condition and/or treatment of the patient overlayed on the actual view of the patient. A real-time image of an area of a patient's body being viewed by a medical professional is captured via the HMD system. One or more body parts of the patient are identified within the real-time image. The one or more identified body parts are correlated with the patient's electronic medical records (EMRs) indicating the medical condition and/or treatments associated with the patient. An augmented reality display is then generated in the HMD system of one or more areas of the patient's body corresponding to the medical condition and/or treatment of the patient overlaying the real-time image of the area of the patient's body.

  • Publication number: 20190333612
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided in a data processing system comprising a processor and a memory, the memory comprising instructions that are executed by the processor to specifically configure the processor to implement a repetitive portion identification and weighting engine. A machine learning model is trained for weighting repetitive portions of patient electronic medical records (EMRs). A repetitive portion identification component applies a plurality of templates to clinical notes of a patient EMR to identify one or more candidate portions that match at least one of the plurality of templates. A content analysis component performs content analysis on the one or more candidate portions to determine whether each given candidate portion is relevant. A weighting component assigns a relative weight to each given candidate portion based on relevance.
