  • Patent number: 10332629
    Abstract: A method for displaying medical data includes receiving physiological data from a first medical monitoring device. The physiological data is obtained on a continuous basis. Physiological data is received from a second medical monitoring device. The physiological data from the second medical monitoring device is obtained on a non-continuous basis. The physiological data received from the first medical monitoring device and the physiological data received from the second medical monitoring device are displayed on a central display station. The central display station is located centrally within a care unit of a caregiving facility.

  • Patent number: 10159409
    Abstract: An ophthalmoscope device includes a support structure, an image capture device, and a display device. The support structure is configured to be worn by a subject. The image capture device is configured to capture images of the eye fundus of the subject. The display device is configured to overlay images in the field of view of the subject. The overlaid images are used to align the pupil/fovea orientation axis with the optical axis of the image capture device.

  • Patent number: 9361082
    Abstract: A method for preparing a computer for use as a central monitoring station includes connecting a computer to a network. An operating system is installed on the computer. Anti-virus software is installed on the computer. Licensing information is installed on the computer. Configuration information is stored on the computer. The configuration information is for the computer and at least one additional computer. A determination is made that the computer is to be activated as a first central monitoring station on the network. When the determination is made that the computer is to be activated as the first central monitoring station, the computer is configured according to a first subset of the configuration information. The computer is activated on the network as the first central monitoring station.

  • Patent number: 9077544
    Abstract: Methods and systems of automatically provisioning authentication credentials on a plurality of network devices. The method may include determining a process for provisioning the authentication credentials for the plurality of devices. The process may include steps of gaining access to a network device, entering a command to reach a network service interface associated to the network device, indicating a location of the authentication credentials, and initiating installation of the authentication credentials. The method may also include providing a computer program to follow the process. The computer program may be a script that is automatically executed without a user intervention.

  • Patent number: 8856380
    Abstract: A communications protocol interface may be configured as being divisible into a core portion and an extensible portion. The extensible portion of the communications protocol interface may be further configured so that each network element can communicate a unique and optimally small subset of actual interoperable data that corresponds to at least a portion of a larger defined data set. A software generator program may be configured to generate a set of extensible source code that operates upon the subset of actual data and that directs the execution of the extensible portion of the communications protocol interface for a particular network element.
