  • Publication number: 20130218599
    Abstract: A secure system for accessing records uses a provider media device and a consumer media device to access records associated with the consumer. Both the consumer and provider media devices are normally authenticated before access to the consumer records is granted. Records can be centrally stored in a central location and downloaded, in full or in part, to the consumer media device. Passwords can be used to grant local access to consumer media device, for example, in the absence of network connectivity.

  • Publication number: 20080183504
    Abstract: A point-of-care touch/click entry system can be used to replace and/or augment standard dictation transcription models in medical record systems (which comprise institution-centric data). Key word entry can better standardized medical record display, can be linked directly to diagnostic and billing codes to automate billing thus decreasing payers claims of fraud and can be used to insert data variables directly into relational databases to improve outcome analysis. In total the “clinical operating system (COS) and clinical information system (CIS) can quickly and accurately produce “longitudinal” lifetime medical records (which comprise patient-centric data). The longitudinal medical record can be used in accordance with medical record systems to connect patients, providers, pharmacies, clinics, hospitals, payers, and producers through a secure private network that operates in real-time at the point of care on-line or off-line.

  • Patent number: 4320749
    Abstract: An apparatus (10) for determining by X-ray examination whether an anterior talo fibular ligament has been ruptured includes an angle-shaped support structure (12) having an upright member (14) attachable to the lower leg (L) of the patient. The support structure (12) also includes a base member (16) for slidably supporting a foot support carriage (18) for longitudinal movement toward and away from support member (14). Carriage (18) includes a heel wedge (20) for receiving the patient's heel (H). Straps (22) are provided for securing foot (F) to the top surface of carriage (18). A predetermined force is applied to heel (H) by a pneumatic loading system (26) designed to push carriage (18) forwardly in the coronal plane away from leg support member (14).
