  • Patent number: 10672251
    Abstract: In some examples, systems, methods, and devices are described that generate contextual suggestions for patients. Generation of the contextual suggestions is triggered by certain events performed by a medical professional with respect to a patient (e.g., updating a patient record). The contextual suggestions are related to addressing health conditions of the patient and represent tasks or considerations which the medical professional should be made aware. The contextual suggestions are generated in a way that is considerate of patient context, medical professional context, and contexts of similar patients. The contextual suggestions can be presented to the medical professional for selection and execution.

  • Patent number: 10665348
    Abstract: In some examples, structured and unstructured data is analyzed to determine whether a user is at risk for a certain condition. The results of this analysis can be included in a risk assessment. In some examples, structured and unstructured data is analyzed to determine whether a particular event has taken place. Once detection of occurrence of the event has taken place, a notification is generated that a correct recipient is identified. In addition, it is determined if and how the notification should be escalated.

  • Patent number: 10370090
    Abstract: An aerodynamic body operable to both promote laminar flow and satisfy structural requirements is disclosed. A perforated panel skin comprises an inner surface and an outer surface of the aerodynamic body. At least one hollow member is coupled to the inner surface and is operable to suction air from the outer surface and through the perforated panel skin. The at least one hollow member is oriented in a substantially chord-wise direction relative to an airflow over the aerodynamic body.

  • Patent number: 9091619
    Abstract: A test fixture for determining circumferential shear properties of an arcuate test specimen may include an outer fixture and an inner fixture. The outer fixture may be coupled to an outer side of the test specimen, and may be rotatably mounted on a central pin and may include a rocker arm. The inner fixture may be coupled to an inner side of the test specimen, and may be rotatably mounted on the central pin and may include a load arm extending in a direction opposite the rocker arm. The inner fixture and the outer fixture may be configured such that application of a test load to the rocker arm and the load arm causes rotation thereof about the central pin producing circumferential movement of the inner side relative to the outer side and inducing a circumferential shear load in the test specimen.

  • Publication number: 20120276351
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of bonding two members together utilizing a stack of solid film adhesive and a layer of solid film adhesive, both disposed between the members. A pressure-applying device may be utilized to apply low pressure to force the members together. The pressure may force the stack to compress and expand in varying directions in order to substantially remove air-bubbles between the layer and one of the members. A heating device may be utilized to change the layer and the stack into liquid states in order to bond the members together with a void-free bond-line.
