System And Method For Dose Capture With Flow Patch And Delivery Infomatics
Patent No. 11504009
An injection sensing device (ISD) (e.g., wearable patch) is paired with an external device (e.g., a medication delivery pen and/or smart phone, iPad, computer) via wireless link or wireline connection. The ISD senses fluctuations in local skin temperature during an injection and provides to the external device captured data from the sensor relating to medicine delivery to a patient to ensure complete delivery and minimize MDD misuse or malfunction or inaccuracies in dosing. The ISD or external device can use captured data and corresponding time stamps to determine flow informatics such as flow rate, total dose delivered, and dose completion status. An LED on the ISD indicates delivery in progress and/or delivery completion.

Automatic And Continuous Monitoring And Remediation Of API Integrations
Patent No. 11507880
Monitoring and automatically remediating issues that arise at run-time during integrations between Application Program Interfaces (APIs) of two or more endpoint products over an integration framework. The monitoring is facilitated by inserting specialized modules into the integration framework that detects changes in the outputs of the integrated endpoint products and attempts to remedy them by automatically adjusting the output in-transit towards a destination endpoint. The specialized modules can be enhanced by machine learning algorithms trained on previously successful remedies. Remedies may be directed towards schema variations and performance drifts, among others.

Detection Of Anomalies Associated With Fraudulent Access To A Service Platform
Patent No. 11516240
In some implementations, a system may obtain a first model that is trained to identify feature data associated with a client system using one or more services of a service platform. The system may train, based on the feature data, a second model to identify anomalies associated with devices accessing the one or more services in association with a client identifier of the client system. The system may receive access data associated with an acting device accessing a service of the service platform. The system may determine, using the second model, that the acting device accessing the service corresponds to potential anomalous activity based on the access information. The system may obtain, from a verification device, a verification that the acting device accessing the service is anomalous activity. The system may perform, based on obtaining the verification, an action associated with the acting device.

Seal Integrity Indicator For A Sterilization Container
Patent No. 11511010
Seal integrity indicators for sterilization containers are provided. For example, a seal indicator may indicate whether the container is sufficiently sealed to prevent an ingress of contaminants into the container. If the container is sufficiently sealed, the seal indicator is visible, but if not, the seal indicator is not visible. Thus, the seal indicator undergoes a change in state when the sterilization container transitions from unsealed to sealed, or vice versa, such that a user may ascertain whether the container is properly sealed to maintain the container’s sterility. An exemplary seal indicator includes an invertible projection formed with the container gasket that is not visible from outside the container until inverted, due to force applied by the lid, to extend through an opening in the container body. Closure mechanisms for sterilization containers also are provided.

Leveraging Blockchain Based Machine Learning Modeling For Expense Categorization
Patent No. 11514444
Systems and methods disclosed herein provide automatic expense categorization of transactions or expenditures based on a machine learning (ML) model trained using anonymized transactional data for expenditures that are stored in a public blockchain. The anonymized transactional data for the expenditure and the expense category, may be distributed throughout the blockchain network and recorded in the blockchain. In some implementations, an expenditure may be submitted to the blockchain network for expense categorization. The transactional data for the expenditure may be anonymized to remove confidential and personal identifying information (PII) before it is distributed throughout the blockchain network. Each participating node of the blockchain network may utilize the ML model to identify an expense category for the expenditure. The participating nodes may provide a consensus mechanism in order to arrive at a shared understanding of how to categorize the expenditure.
