  • Patent number: 11267767
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention relate to improvements in the flexibility with which oxygen and hydrogen, for example from electrolysis, may be supplied to processes having both gasification and methanation steps, as well as improvements in how such processes may be operated in response to variations in carbonaceous feeds. Offsets, between the ideal quantity of hydrogen and the quantity available from a given source may be compensated for by adjusting one or more operations of the process, and in particular such operation(s) that ultimately impact the quantity of CO and/or CO2 available downstream of the gasifier for conversion to methane in an RNG product stream.

    Abstract: Embodiments of apparatuses, systems and methods for video creation, editing, and sharing for social media are described. In particular, the present embodiments include components for copying and pasting snippets of media from a first media file to a second media file at a desired location within the second media file. In a further embodiment, media snippets may be copied, cut, or pasted within a single media file. For example, in an embodiment, a snippet of video may be copied from a first video file, and pasted at a selected position within a timeline of a second video file. The media files may be pasted over each other completely. In another embodiment, audio may be pasted over existing video. In another embodiment video may be pasted over existing audio. In various alternative embodiments, the media snippet may be otherwise merged with the second media file.

  • Publication number: 20160188832
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer storage media are provided for determining a patient's severity of illness score (pSIS) for a patient admitted to an acute care facility. Data corresponding to physiologic components is received from an electronic medical record associated with a patient admitted to an acute care healthcare facility. The physiologic components include vital sign measurements and laboratory tests. Weights are assigned to a minimum, median, and maximum measured values for each vital sign. Weights are assigned to minimum and maximum values for each laboratory test. The weights are derived based on a deviation from normal within a time period. A pSIS is determined by summing the weights. Additional data corresponding to physiologic components may be received from the electronic medical record. The additional data may be utilized to update the weights and determine a patient's updated pSIS that may be utilized to track a progress of the patient.

  • Publication number: 20160188833
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer storage media are provided for determining a patient's severity of illness score (pSIS) for a patient admitted to an acute care facility. Data is received corresponding to medical support a patient is receiving from an electronic medical record associated with the patient admitted to an acute care healthcare facility. The data is associated with support variables present in a patient upon admission or administered to the patient within an initial time period from admission. Support variables include both pharmaceutical-type variables and medical device-type variables. Weights are assigned to each support variable associated with the patient. A patient's pSIS is determined by summing the weights. The pSIS accounts for effects that medical support a patient is receiving has on the patient's physiology.

  • Patent number: 9289619
    Abstract: The present invention relates to identifying and using groups of cardiac events associated with depolarization wavefronts to coordinate the delivery of pacing therapy to the heart. According to one aspect of the invention, cardiac events associated with a plurality of cardiac sites are detected. The cardiac sites may be located in a single heart chamber or in bilateral heart chambers. A group of detected cardiac events associated with a depolarization wavefront is identified. According to another aspect of the invention, a particular cardiac event of an identified group associated with a depolarization wavefront may be used to synchronize pacing therapy delivered to the heart. According to yet another aspect, premature ventricular contractions may be classified using the identified groups.

  • Publication number: 20140372146
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer storage media are provided for determining a physiologic severity of illness score (pSIS) for a patient admitted to an acute care healthcare facility. Data corresponding to physiologic components is received from an electronic medical record associated with a patient admitted to an acute care healthcare facility. The data is not required to correspond to physiologic components collected in or associated with an intensive care unit. Weights are assigned to each physiologic component. The weights are derived based on a deviation from normal. A physiologic severity of illness score (pSIS) is for the patient is determined by summing the weights. Additional data corresponding to the physiologic components may be received from the electronic medical record. The additional data may be utilized to update the weights and determine an updated pSIS for the patient which may be utilized to track a progress of the patient.

  • Patent number: 8751377
    Abstract: A system and method for providing emergency reserve conditional credit to a customer of a financial institution. The emergency conditional credit may be provided to the customer in the form of a line-of-credit or a loan based on the occurrence of a predetermined condition, such as involuntary unemployment, disability or the like. The emergency reserve product of the present invention is a product that can be offered through a financial institution or other ER-providing entity and, as such, does not require the level of regulation required of an insurance product. The invention also provides for the emergency reserve product to be offered in conjunction with a debt cancellation feature, referred to as emergency reserve protection, which serves to cancel the outstanding debt associated with the loan or line-of-credit.

  • Patent number: 8706613
    Abstract: A system and method for providing emergency conditional credit to a customer of a financial institution. The system includes a customer site and a financial institution. The financial institution determines actuarial data using past history of customers incurring specified events, the actuarial data useable to predict future specified events, determines a cost for offering an emergency reserve (ER) product using the actuarial data, determines a qualification standard for the ER product, and offers the ER product to a person at the customer site. An emergency reserve protection (ERP) feature that provides protection that cancels any ER balance on a monthly basis during a covered event may also be offered to customers. One or more vendor sites may be used to handle some of the processing or managing of the ER and ERP product offerings.

  • Patent number: 8607153
    Abstract: Systems and methods for rendering a graphic that describes multiple dimensions of performance for a subject intensive care unit (ICU) over a predefined period of time are provided. One method involves measuring the performance of the subject ICU against various metrics and displaying the measured performance as a graphic constructed of data strips placed adjacent to a 2-dimensional plot. The lengths of the data strips visually represent a percentage of patients that did not receive active treatment in the subject ICU, a rate of readmission to an ICU, and a median of the acute physiological scores (APS's) extracted from patients admitted to the subject ICU, respectively. The 2-dimensional plot includes an X-axis that represents a ratio of a hospital predicted mortality rate value over the measured mortality rate, while a Y-axis represents a difference between a predicted mean length of stay value and the measured mean length of stay value.

  • Patent number: 8417541
    Abstract: Computerized methods in a clinical computing environment for predicting mortality in critically ill patients, that is, patients admitted to Intensive Care Units, are provided. In accordance with embodiments hereof, at least two distinctly different mortality prediction models (e.g., the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHEĀ®) model and the Mortality Probability Model at Admission (MPM0) are utilized in a multi-stage fashion to determine, with better accuracy than may be provided by either mortality prediction model alone, the probability of mortality for critically ill adult patients.
