  • Patent number: 10589021
    Abstract: Methods, computer systems and computer readable media provide validation of one or more infusions for a patient without requiring barcode scanning. In embodiments, identification that a clinician has entered a room with one or more infusions is received based on proximity information. The room is associated with a patient that has orders for the one or more infusions. The clinician is automatically logged into an electronic medical record (EMR) associated with the patient, including context based on the clinician entering the room with the one or more infusion. As a result, the one or more infusions are automatically validated for the patient.

  • Publication number: 20190324516
    Abstract: A computing device may comprise a volatile memory and a non-volatile storage device. Upon system shutdown, contents of the volatile memory may be preserved by memory transfer operations from the volatile memory to the non-volatile storage device. During memory preservation, the computing device may enter a low-power state. The low-power state may comprise suspension of power to a core of a processor while maintaining power to the processor's uncore, and disablement of interrupt signals not related to memory transfer operations. Power delivery to the core of the processor may be periodically resumed to initiate additional memory transfer operations.

  • Patent number: 10409349
    Abstract: Aspects extend to methods, systems, and computer program products for remediating power loss at a server. Aspects of the invention increase the likelihood of gracefully shutting down a server and associated components in a data center when mains power is lost for a specified amount of time (e.g., an amount of time beyond transition to generator power). A server can include a management module (e.g., a BMC) and a watchdog module. When the management controller detects loss of power at a power supply unit, the management controller orchestrates a graceful shutdown of the server in response to power loss. When the management module is unresponsive, the watchdog module provides backup functionality for orchestrating a graceful shutdown in response to power loss. As such, data can be saved from RAM to more durable storage even when the management module is unresponsive.

  • Patent number: 10403128
    Abstract: A system and method provides efficient and highly reliable customer and asset tracking. A Personal Digital Key (PDK) is associated with and carried by a user or fixed to an asset. The PDK wirelessly communicates with a receiver/decoder circuit (RDC) that can be coupled to a variety of electronic devices. The RDC authenticates the PDK based on received data and stores information to track customers and provide improved service. The RDC can be coupled to or integrated with a variety of electronic devices. The operation of the electronic device is determined based on an identification code of the detected PDK and an identification code of the RDC. The electronic device, the PDK or both can be configured with a personalized user interface and execute specific functions based on stored state information associated with the PDK and RDC identification codes.

  • Publication number: 20190235949
    Abstract: Embodiments of ensuring data integrity in computing devices and associated methods of operations are disclosed therein. In one embodiment, a method includes receiving, at a memory controller, a data request from the persistent storage to copy data from the memory. In response to the received data request, the requested data is retrieved from the memory. The retrieved data contains data bits and corresponding error correcting bits. The method can also include determining, at the memory controller, whether the retrieved data bits contain one or more data integrity errors based on the error correcting bits associated with the data bits. In response to determining that the retrieved data bits contain one or more data integrity errors, the memory controller can write data representing existence of the one or more data integrity errors into a memory location accessible by the processor for ensuring data integrity.

  • Publication number: 20190123368
    Abstract: A fuel cell power controller tracks load current and fuel cell output voltage, and alerts on excessive fuel cell ramp rate, so another power source can supplement the fuel cell and/or the load can be reduced. A power engineering process makes efficient use of available fuel cell power by ramping up power flow rapidly when power is available, while respecting the ramp rate and other power limitations of the fuel cell and safety limitations of the load. Power flow decreases after an alert indicating an electrical output limitation of the fuel cell. Permitted power flow increases in response to a power demand increase (actual or requested) from the load in the absence of the alert. Power flow may increase or decrease in a fixed amount, a proportional amount, or per a sequence. A power controller relay may trip open on a low fuel cell output voltage or high load current.

  • Patent number: 10152393
    Abstract: Embodiments of recovering data in computing devices and associated methods of operations are disclosed therein. In one embodiment, a method includes receiving a failure notification indicating that a core of a main processor is experiencing a catastrophic failure causing the core unable to execute instructions. In response, a flush command can be issued to an uncore of the processor via a debug port instructing the uncore to copy any data currently residing in a processor cache of the main processor to a volatile memory. The method further includes issuing a self-refresh command causing the volatile memory to enter a self-refresh mode in which the data copied from the processor cache is maintained and unmodifiable by the main processor during a reset of the main processor.
