  • Patent number: 10970356
    Abstract: A living website is provided that autonomously and dynamically changes presentation based on engagement from users, business members, distributed devices, and, optionally, individual user preferences. The living website presentation changes with the promotion and demotion of website elements through repositioning, visual differentiation, and other means. These changes are produced by a machine rewriting of the living website code that is conditioned on the continually tracked engagement. In particular, the tracked engagement identifies the website elements that are most engaging at that time. The living website then adapts in order to presents users with this most engaging content in a manner that is immediately apparent and before them. Consequently, users spend less time searching, scrolling, or otherwise browsing a website in order to find content that is engaging and of interest to them, and more time interacting with the engaging content that is already before them.

  • Patent number: 10854330
    Abstract: Provided are mechanisms and processes for a medical appointment delay management system. According to various examples, the system includes a location sensor that detects when a medical professional wearing a personal beacon enters an examination room to conduct an examination of a particular patient. The system also includes a medical schedule processor that logs a time associated with when the medical professional enters the examination room and compares this time with scheduling information to predict whether future appointments in the schedule will be delayed. A notification interface, included in the system, is designed to notify an upcoming patient if their scheduled appointment will be substantially delayed. Scheduling information is cryptographically separated from HIPAA information.
