  • Publication number: 20210148616
    Abstract: A refrigeration system for a vehicle including a refrigerant circuit having a double-flow heat exchanger, it being possible to operate the heat exchanger as a refrigerant condenser/gas cooler for an AC mode or as an air heat pump evaporator for a heat pump mode. The first flow of the heat exchanger has a first refrigerant connection and the second flow of the heat exchanger has a second refrigerant connection. For double flow through the heat exchanger in AC mode the first refrigerant connection is a refrigerant inlet and the second refrigerant connection is a refrigerant outlet. For single flow through the heat exchanger in heat pump mode the second refrigerant connection is a refrigerant inlet.

  • Publication number: 20190102451
    Abstract: A term base can be used to index a raw term (e.g., a text string from an electronic health record) to generate a computational expression of the raw term. As part of doing so, portions of the raw term including personally identifying information can be removed and/or replaced with de-identified information. The computational expression of the raw term can be used to generate a version of the raw term that is devoid of the personally identifying information.

  • Publication number: 20190103172
    Abstract: A user's health record can be stored on a user device. Medical terms from the health record can be represented as medical term expressions using an indexing process. The medical term expressions can be used to search the health record, add additional contextual information (e.g., in the form of metadata) to the health record, and/or to filter record entries in the health record. This creates a personalized relational graph for the user. The medical term expressions provide for uniform display of the information from the health record.
