  • Patent number: 11002082
    Abstract: A departure device couples to a bit using a connector that facilitates release of the bit from the departure device. The connector may be more millable than the departure device and can transmit axial and torque loads between the bit and the departure device. The connector may include a material having lesser strength or hardness than the departure device, and may be millable by the bit. Another example connector may have connection points with the bit, and a movable member of the departure device may a force to the connector and contribute to releasing the connection between the bit and the departure device. A tensile connector between the bit and the movable member may apply a tension force to the movable member, urging the movable member toward an extended position in which the movable member is aligned coherently with a sloped face of the departure device.

  • Publication number: 20210133197
    Abstract: An electronic medical records (EMR) system that enables a user to import paper-based clinical form templates (typically Word documents) and insert data tags in the data fields on the templates. This approach allows the user to retrieve clinical data from user inputs and from hospital recordkeeping systems, such as HIS, LIS, RIS/PACS, and others to generate EMR forms. Medical personnel can then access the data to generate descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive analytics including vital sign charts, drug interaction warnings, and drug recommendations. The system also enables secure data sharing between healthcare facilities using a blockchain system or a FHIR server. Upon signing an EMR form with one or more electronic signatures, the system generates a digitized image including images of the electronic signatures. The system generates hash of the digitized image and store the hash to the blockchain system, wherein the hash is used to verify the signed EMR form.
