  • Publication number: 20230024794
    Abstract: The disclosure describes an on-demand web-based software and hardware platform that has been developed, on a custom hardware (server) architecture, in an abstracted fashion to enable the administrative users (admins) to create and deploy their experience that can manage asynchronous communication and decision-oriented workflows, in a secure fashion, within a healthcare system. The experience created by the admin can be used for almost any use-case (within care delivery, care coordination and care management) where asynchronous and decision-based workflows and video-centric asynchronous communication proves to derive value resulting in increased productivity, reduction in cost, improved revenue production. Additionally, from an asynchronous communication perspective, the platform empowers the delivery of “capture, store and forward” video-based one-way, two-way and multi-way user interactivity.

  • Publication number: 20230012269
    Abstract: Various examples describe interfacing at least one computing device to a plurality of human users. An interface system may receive goal data describing a shared goal shared by a plurality of users and transaction data describing a first transaction made by a first user of the plurality of users. The interface system may also receive, from a user computing device, audio data describing speech of the first user and of a second user. The interface system may extract a first word from the audio data and detect a conflict between at least two of the plurality of users based at least in part on the goal data, the transaction data, and the first word. The interface system may further determine a mediation routine for the conflict based at least in part on the goal data, the transaction data, and the first word, and execute the mediation routine.

  • Patent number: 11518562
    Abstract: Described herein is a method of forming individual tubes or sachets containing fluent material, and a packaging machine for doing so, are described. The side of the foil which will be in contact with the fluent material when the package is formed is exposed to plasma in mist or aerosol form as the tube or sachet is formed from a strip of laminate material (1), which is folded about a former (2) into a closed tube or sachet which passes over the open end of a dispensing tube (3) from which the fluent material is dispensed. A mist of plasma is injected into the interior of the material tube as it is formed, extracted from the area once it has passed over the interior walls of the laminate tube.

  • Publication number: 20220311922
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided that capture and process frames of frame data. An image sensor captures frames of frame data representative of light incident upon the image sensor using a rolling shutter and outputs the frames of frame data. The image sensor captures at least one of the frames over a frame capture interval and then waits over a blanking interval before capturing another frame. A buffer receives and stores the frames output by the image sensor. An image signal processor retrieves the frames from the buffer and processes the frames over successive frame processing intervals to generate a video having a time interval per frame greater than the frame capture interval. At least one of the successive frame processing intervals is greater than the frame capture interval and is less than or equal to a sum of the frame capture interval and the blanking interval.

  • Publication number: 20220264969
    Abstract: A face mask apparatus configured to more closely adhere to the face of the user such that it is fitted to the bridge of the nose to minimize any vision obstruction by a wearer. The face mask is equipped with a nose bridge segment, a mouth segment, and a chin segment, each disposed in serial communication at obtuse angles. A nose bridge support is disposed within a material of the nose bridge segment and is configured to ensure that the mask remains in position during movement of the face. Additionally, a secondary support is present within the mouth segment to ensure the mask is fitted to the face of the user for comfort and to ensure efficacy. The material of the mask is configured to filter bacteria, viruses, pollen, mold, dust, and other debris, and is preferably removably affixed to the face of the user via retention straps.
