  • Publication number: 20200267187
    Abstract: An example operation may include one or more of storing state information of a system component via a data block included among a hash-linked chain of data blocks of a blockchain, the state information identifying operating features of the system component at a first point in time, receiving, from the system component, re-computed state information of the system component captured at a second point in time that is subsequent to the first point in time, determining an integrity of the system component based on the re-computed state information and the previously stored state information of the system component stored among the hash-linked chain of data blocks, and transmitting information about the determined integrity to a computing system associated with the system component.

  • Patent number: 10727905
    Abstract: A system is disclosed comprising a near field communication tag that is transformable from a first state to a second state. The system also comprises a server program stored on a non-transitory storage medium that, when executed by a server apparatus, receives a first tag report from a user device in response to the tag being tapped while being in the first state, sends a first response to the user device or to another user device in response to the first tag report being received, receives a second tag report from the user device in response to the tag being tapped while being in the second state, and sends a second response to the user device or to another user device in response to the second tag report being received.

  • Patent number: 10720232
    Abstract: This document describes systems, methods, devices, and other techniques for managing healthcare records. In some implementations, a computing system is provided that includes an electronic ledger, a first program module, and a second program module. The electronic ledger can store entries of medical record management events invoked by participants in a distributed computing network. The first program module can be assigned to an account of a first user on the distributed computing network and can identify (i) medical records of the first user and (ii) accounts of users other than the first user that are authorized to access the medical records of the first user. The second program module can be assigned to an account of a second user on the distributed computing network and can call the first program module to request access to a set of one or more of the medical records of the first user.

  • Publication number: 20190283944
    Abstract: A tamper evident closure comprises a cap having a plug, a skirt and a locking member. The cap and the skirt have seats in which a first portion and a second portion of the locking member are arranged. Upon first opening, as the cap moves longitudinally away from the skirt, the lower edge of the cap passes over the first portion longitudinally so that, upon reclosing the closure, the first portion positions in an obstructive manner between the lower edge of the cap and the upper edge of the skirt.

  • Patent number: 10414562
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a closure including a first stationary part and a second removable part. The second part includes a storage chamber and a dispensing opening. The first part includes a closing member and at least one passage opening. Upon first opening, the second part moves relative to the first part from a first configuration to a second configuration to cause the dispensing opening to disengage from the closing member and allow the product in the storage chamber to flow out into the container. In the first configuration, the first part engages the second part to form a first sealing portion, a second sealing portion, and a safety chamber arranged between the first sealing portion and the second sealing portion.
