  • Patent number: 9934539
    Abstract: The systems, methods, and GUIs of the present invention not only have the ability to display DICOM and non-DICOM images simultaneously, side-by-side in a single viewer, but also display a timeline corresponding to more than one healthcare study. A selection of more than one healthcare study from different sources, without requiring a single storage repository or single PACS system, is received and a viewer is launched for the selected studies. Any DICOM images are converted to a non-DICOM format such that non-DICOM images from the more than one healthcare study side-by-side in the viewer. A timeline corresponding to more than one healthcare study for a patient is provided. From the timeline, images from different sources can be selected and displayed side-by-side in the viewer in a non-DICOM format.

  • Patent number: 9935945
    Abstract: A method for ensuring management controller firmware security, by a security manager of a computing device, includes storing a public key and raw identity data, and obtaining, from a management firmware for a management controller of the computing device, encrypted identity data. The security manager decrypts the encrypted identity data with the public key into decrypted identity data, and compares the decrypted identity data with the raw identity data to determine whether the management firmware is authentic. The security manager protects the computing device from harm by the management firmware, in response to determining that the management firmware is not authentic.

  • Patent number: 9933926
    Abstract: A system for efficiently displaying medical data to a user. For one or more of the image series, the system displays a thumbnail image representing the image series in a secondary segment of a display. In response to a selection of one of the displayed thumbnail images the system displays in the secondary segment a positioning grid with multiple sections, each section representing a section of a separate primary segment of the display that does not overlap the secondary segment. In response to a selection of one of the sections in the positioning grid the system updates the display to cause an image in the image series corresponding to the selected thumbnail image to be displayed in the section of the primary segment of the display represented by the selected section of the positioning grid.

  • Patent number: 9817945
    Abstract: Example methods, systems, and computer readable media are disclosed to allocate a medical exam. An example method includes identifying an exam characteristic associated with the medical exam. The example method includes determining a plurality of allocation scores for a plurality of radiologists by comparing the exam characteristic to a radiologist characteristic for each of the plurality of radiologists. The example method includes determining one of the plurality of allocation scores with a highest value. The example method includes allocating the medical exam to one of the plurality of radiologists associated with the one of the plurality of allocation scores with the highest value. The example method includes marking the medical exam as allocated to the one of the plurality of radiologists associated with the one of the plurality of allocation scores with the highest value. The example method includes providing an indication that the medical exam is allocated via a graphical user interface.

  • Patent number: 9805213
    Abstract: A system and method verify and validate user identity for enrollment in a secure personal dataset accessing system, wherein a personal dataset includes identifiable attributes of a user. Authenticity of an asserted user identity includes electronically verified identifiable attributes to form the personal dataset. A biometric identifier is automatically captured for validating the identifiable attributes by confirming that the asserted identity matches identifiable attributes. A traceable e-audit trail is provided in an enterprise infrastructure and bench mark performance indicator. A generated digital security element results in the user electronically receiving a password and unique electronic address assigned to the user. The digital security element is then transmitted to the user and enables electronic access to the personal dataset, the personal dataset having been authenticated through the verification and validation.
