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 using permanent IDs to tag messages received from devices like infusion pumps in the clinical environment, ensuring that identifiers do not need to be changed even if the facility is categorized differently in another system or region.

The patent further details a method for tagging messages with hierarchical identifiers associated with different groups at varying levels within an organization. By tagging messages with permanent identifiers linked to specific groups, the need for changing identifiers when groups are reorganized is eliminated. The system can prioritize group detection indicators associated with messages or devices, allowing for efficient tagging with default hierarchical identifiers if no specific group is identified. Additionally, the patent outlines the use of an apparatus and non-transitory physical computer storage to implement these methods, ensuring seamless communication between devices in a clinical environment and remote servers without the need for constant updates to hierarchical identifiers.
