  • Publication number: 20200226285
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed herein to secure flexible access to the healthcare information resources (HIR) contained within electronic health records (EHR) systems. By managing access permissions with certified self-sovereign identities and distributed ledger techniques, HIR may be secured. Patients and other users may be registered to access a distributed ledger, such as a healthcare blockchain, employed to set, host and adjudicate permissions to access HIR. Authorized owners and/or patients with rights to their own HIR may be able to grant fine-grained and conditional access permissions to third-parties. Information transfers and transactions occurring according to these permissions may be logged within smart contracts incorporated in the healthcare blockchain.

  • Patent number: 10625225
    Abstract: A single-pass flow-through dry chemical mixing trailer for use with a well has a trailer, a refillable liquid storage tank, a main liquid storage tank valve, a liquid storage tank inlet valve, an onboard power supply, a motor with a fuel supply, a transmission, a fluid circulation loop, a self-priming bidirectional flow alternating centrifuge pump, an automated mixer assembly, and a discharge tank. The refillable liquid storage tank prevents backflow to the self-priming bidirectional flow alternating centrifuge pump while flowing the homogenized slurry to the well and the dry chemicals introduced at the automated mixer are subjected to high shear forces, incorporating the dry chemicals into the liquid with increased dispersion and reduced agglomeration.

  • Patent number: 10425814
    Abstract: An iris biometric recognition module includes technology for capturing images of an iris of an eye of a person, whether the person is moving or stationary. The iris biometric recognition technology can perform an iris matching procedure for, e.g., authentication or identity purposes, by comparing a digital iris image to a reference iris image and, if the digital and reference iris images match, authenticating a person as authorized to access a first device and transmitting a wireless communication from the first device to a second device.
