Application: Tagging pump messages with identifiers that facilitate restructuring (Patent ID: US20240071606A1)

The patent filed by ICU Medical Inc. describes techniques for communication between a clinical environment and a cloud environment. One method involves tagging messages with facility identifiers without needing to update them when facilities are rearranged. This is achieved by a connectivity adapter in the clinical environment tagging messages with permanent IDs, ensuring that even if the facility is categorized differently in another system or region, the identifiers in the message remain unchanged. The patent also outlines a method for processing messages from devices associated with different hierarchical levels, tagging them with hierarchical identifiers, and transmitting them to a remote server without requiring changes to the identifiers even if the device's association changes within the hierarchy.

The patent further details the apparatus and computer-executable instructions for implementing the method, including determining group detection indicators associated with the message or device, tagging messages with default hierarchical identifiers if no corresponding identifiers are found in the database, and converting messages between different formats. The storage of computer-executable instructions is also described, enabling the processing of messages associated with devices at various hierarchical levels and tagging them with hierarchical identifiers for transmission to a remote server. Additionally, the instructions allow for the determination of group detection indicators and tagging messages with default hierarchical identifiers if no matching identifiers are found in the database, showcasing a comprehensive system for efficient communication within and across different environments.
