  • Publication number: 20210350911
    Abstract: When acquiring detailed utilization information from imaging equipment in a cross-vendor approach, one or more sensors (16, 18, 22, 24) are positioned within a data security zone (14) in which an imaging procedure is performed. Sensor data is pre-processed on an isolated processing unit (20) to remove any sensitive information and keep a selection of features only. The resultant feature pattern is transmitted outside of the data security zone to a processing unit (28) where pattern recognition is performed on feature pattern to identify the type of imaging modality, scan, etc. being performed as well as to determine whether the scan is being performed according to schedule.

  • Patent number: 11170023
    Abstract: A computer implemented method for manipulating data comprises receiving log transaction information from a primary database system at a secondary database system and parsing the log transaction information to identify data objects that have been modified on the primary database system. The secondary database system determines whether the data objects are present in main memory on the secondary database system and whether the log transaction corresponds to a data manipulation language (DML) query or a data definition language (DDL) query. If the data objects are not in the main memory and the query is a DML query, they are copied from persistence data volumes to the main memory. The data objects in main memory are modified by replaying the log transactions on the data objects in the main memory. Then, the data objects in the persistence data volumes are modified. Related apparatus, systems, techniques and articles are also described.

  • Patent number: 11170423
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated methods related to determining medical services appropriate to a patient in response to a patient lifecycle event: presenting the medical services to the patient for selection; optionally scheduling the selected medical services; and automatically presenting the selected services for prepayment. The patient lifecycle event may be, for example, a doctor's order, diagnosis, condition change, payment, admission, or discharge. The services presented to the patient may be determined in response to, and as a function of, the lifecycle event. For example, the services presented may include procedures determined after the lifecycle event, in view of patient medical history. In an illustrative example, the services presented may be based on medical indication, contraindication, provider or facility availability, or patient scheduling preference, advantageously permitting more medically relevant, beneficial, convenient, or cost-effective services.

  • Publication number: 20210332830
    Abstract: A pump of a dishwasher has an integrated heating element, a pump chamber with an inlet and an outlet, a pump rotor inside the pump chamber and a drive motor, wherein the heating element and a temperature sensor are provided on a wall of the pump chamber. For measuring a calcification of the pump chamber it is filled with water and then the pump rotor rotates for mixing the water in the pump chamber without transporting water out of the pump chamber. The temperature of the water in the pump chamber is measured with the temperature sensor as a starting temperature, and then the heating element is activated to heat the water in the pump chamber while the temperature of the water in the pump chamber is measured. Then the heating element is deactivated and the maximum temperature of the water during the heating duration or directly afterwards is determined. A temperature relation between the maximum temperature and the starting temperature of the water is calculated.

  • Patent number: 11109591
    Abstract: The invention is a herbicidal composition containing an alkanolamine salt of an dicamba capable of remaining as a single phase liquid over a period of at least 1 week and containing low amounts of water and high loadings of the salt. Such herbicidal compositions are capable of remaining liquid in the absence of high amounts of water, thereby enhancing their capacity to remain liquid over an extended period of time when exposed to environmental conditions to improve their effectiveness to transport the active salt through a leafy substrate and can reduce transportation costs by increasing the salt loading without compromising the stability of the composition.

  • Patent number: 11104598
    Abstract: A device and method for bending a glass pane. The device includes a gravity bending mould with a supporting surface, which is suitable for arranging a glass pane thereon; and an upper shaping tool arranged opposite the supporting surface. The upper shaping tool is suitable for producing an overpressure on the top surface of the glass pane arranged on the supporting surface. The top surface faces away from the supporting surface. The shaping tool has a cover that forms a hollow space open in the direction of the gravity bending mould and is equipped with means for introducing a gas into the hollow space in order to produce the overpressure. The hollow space is divided by a separating wall into two subspaces such that a different pressure can be produced in two regions of the surface. The shaping tool is equipped with a common gas feed line, and the separating wall extends to the common gas feed line.
