  • Patent number: 10726699
    Abstract: One variation of a method for detecting breach events by residents of an assisted living facility includes: defining a first access perimeter within a facility; assigning the first access perimeter to a first resident, in a set of residents in the facility; tracking locations of resident wearable devices associated with residents, in the set of residents, within the facility; disabling a first subregion within the first access perimeter coincident a second location of a second resident, in the set of residents, flagged for separation from the first resident; and, in response to a first location of a first resident wearable device associated with the first resident falling outside of the first access perimeter, distributing a first breach event prompt to assist the first resident, proximal the first location, to care provider mobile devices associated with care providers affiliated with the facility.

  • Publication number: 20190286832
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for data access and processing are described. To set up secure environments for data processing (e.g., including machine learning), an access control system may first receive approval from an authorized user (e.g., an approver) granting access to data objects in a multi-tenant data store. The system may determine tenant-specific paths for retrieving the data objects from the data store, and may initialize a number of virtual computing engines for accessing the data. Each computing engine may be tenant-specific based on the path(s) used by that computing engine, and each may include an access role defining the data objects or data object types accessible by that computing engine. By accessing the requested data objects according to the tenant-specific path prefixes and access roles, the virtual computing engines may securely maintain separate environments for different tenants and may only allow user access to approved tenant data.

  • Patent number: 10373467
    Abstract: One variation of a method for detecting breach events by residents of an assisted living facility includes: defining an access perimeter containing a first space and excluding a second space within a facility, the first space and the second space separated by a door; assigning the first individual access perimeter to a first resident, in a set of residents, occupying the facility; maintaining the door in an unlocked state by default during a first period of time; tracking locations of resident wearable devices associated with residents, in the set of residents, within the facility during the first period of time; and, in response to a first location of a first resident wearable device associated with the first resident falling inside the individual access perimeter and within a threshold distance of the door at a first time during the first period of time, triggering the door to enter a locked state.
