  • Publication number: 20200088565
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided including a processor, a memory, and a door. A scale is configured to, when the door is opened, measure the weight of an item placed in the apparatus. A scanner is then configured to, when the door is opened, scan an item placed in the apparatus. The processor is then configured to track the weight of the item when the item is placed in the apparatus and to automatically reorder more of the item in response to a determination that the weight of the item has fallen below a predefined threshold.

  • Publication number: 20200006421
    Abstract: Various techniques and apparatus permit fabrication of superconductive circuits and structures, for instance Josephson junctions, which may, for example be useful in quantum computers. For instance, a low magnetic flux noise trilayer structure may be fabricated having a dielectric structure or layer interposed between two elements or layers capable of superconducting. A superconducting via may directly overlie a Josephson junction. A structure, for instance a Josephson junction, may be carried on a planarized dielectric layer. A fin may be employed to remove heat from the structure. A via capable of superconducting may have a width that is less than about 1 micrometer. The structure may be coupled to a resistor, for example by vias and/or a strap connector.

  • Publication number: 20190277528
    Abstract: A method for monitoring and controlling operation of a HVAC system within a structure comprises providing a thermostat configured to regulate the HVAC system. The method includes situating a plurality of battery-operated temperature monitoring devices within the structure and coupling the thermostat and each of the plurality of battery-operated temperature monitoring devices to a network. The method comprises receiving over the network a user command that includes a selection of at least one of the battery-operated temperature monitoring devices. The method includes computing at the thermostat an offset based on an evaluation of a first temperature reading of the at least one selected battery-operated temperature monitoring device relative to a second temperature reading of the thermostat. The method comprises applying the offset to the thermostat to cause the thermostat to regulate the HVAC system in view of the first temperature reading, and overriding the offset when an override condition is met.

  • Publication number: 20170372430
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer program products to identify and close gaps in care are provided. Aspects of the present disclosure disclosed and described herein enable a payer may identify gaps in care based on information in the payer database. The payer can send this information to the provider prior to patient scheduling. The scheduling system at the provider can use this information to schedule patients and their medical needs (e.g., medical test, lab tests, imaging tests, etc.) before the next patient appointment. Primary care providers (PCPs) can then be made aware of the gaps in care information, as well as Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) coding gap information, so they can perform a complete diagnosis using all available clinical data. PCP notes along with the treatment the patient receives can be combined with the RAF (Risk Adjustment Score) shared by the payers to ensure patient is assessed for all relevant conditions during the visit.

  • Publication number: 20160283673
    Abstract: A medical classification code modeling system and method that generates visual maps in response to user queries, where the visual maps represent combinations of modifiers of an interface terminology that, taken together, map to medical classification code elements. The system and method may present multiple visual maps on the same display to permit visual analysis of multiple mapping revisions or versions. The system and method further may integrate into an electronic health record such that the user's ultimate selection of a mapping results in the corresponding medical classification code being inserted into the record of a patient at an appropriate location, such as on the patient's problem list.
