  • Patent number: 8682777
    Abstract: Methods and systems for computer-based trading enhanced with market and historical data displayed on live screen. Users of the trading platform are able to view on their live screen of executed and pending orders, information about the market depth of a transmitted order, the current view of all transmitted orders and executed trades, historical view of all transmitted orders and executed trades, bond instrument details, execution prices for the various bond instruments, yield for the bond instruments, and spread for the bond instruments.

  • Publication number: 20130332186
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for facilitating a payment collection process by enabling a patient to pre-authorize payment for future medical services not covered by the patient's healthcare payer. Rather than sending a statement to a patient instructing the payment to remit an outstanding balance, a practice management system automatically applies electronic funds for the patient's outstanding balance in accordance with terms of a contract executed between the patient and the medical practice at the time of service. By including contract terms such as a predefined maximum charge amount and limited contract duration, patients may feel that their electronic account information is safe and that they will be billed only for what they owe. Additionally, medical practices may have better assurance that remittance for medical services will be paid promptly by patients under the terms of the contract.

  • Patent number: 8392314
    Abstract: Methods and systems for computer-based incremental trading are provided. Owners of the top price/time priority orders are able to trade between each other multiple numbers of times prior to the expiration of a workup period, at which time the workup orders of all the users participating in the workup are matched. The workup period is private between the owners of the top price/time priority orders and the orders are allowed to be modified multiple times. When the workup period ends, orders are matched according to the original price/time priority.

  • Patent number: 8332287
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for reconciling bank transactions with stored deposit entries in a practice management system. A plurality of bank transactions received from a bank are processed to select bank deposits from the plurality of bank transactions. A plurality of matching rules are used to automatically match at least some of the selected bank deposits with the stored deposits in the practice management system. A user interface enables a user to review the results of the automatic matching process and to manually match bank deposits to stored deposit entries. The user interface also enables users to reconcile stored deposit entries in the practice management system to bank statements to facilitate the preparation of month-end financial statements.

  • Patent number: 6607521
    Abstract: An apparatus for corneal surgery to correct a refractive error by ablating corneal tissue with a laser beam emitted from a laser source and delivered onto a cornea of a patient's eye with a light delivering optical system, the apparatus comprising an irradiation area limiting device for limiting an irradiation area of the laser beam and for varying the irradiation area, a first control device for controlling the irradiation area limiting device so as to reduce an ablation amount as the laser beam irradiates further away from a flattest meridian of astigmatism whereby effecting astigmatic correction, a second control device for controlling the irradiation area limiting device so as to increase an ablation amount as the laser beam irradiates further away from a steepest meridian of astigmatism whereby effecting astigmatic correction, and an arithmetic device for dividing a refractive power required for astigmatic correction into halves approximately-equally so that an approximately half of the astigmatic c

  • Patent number: 4389669
    Abstract: An opto-video inspection system for inspecting and examining miniaturized solid-state devices, such as hybrids. An XY table simultaneously positions a known good device and a device to be inspected under respective stereo-zoom microscopes. A TV camera is coupled to each microscope. The XY table, under microprocessor control, is manipulated to select the "target" or wire bond to be viewed. The selected sites may be simultaneously viewed upon a split screen video display or, alternatively, either the known good device or the device being inspected may be separately viewed through the associated stereo-zoom microscope or on the video screen. Dwell time at each site is computer selectable, as is the sequencing of sites to be viewed. Defective bonds, imperfections or other conditions are permanently recorded through a printer which automatically associates the code printed thereby with the site in view at that time.
