(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) By Targeted News Service
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- McKesson Financial Holdings, Hamilton, Bermuda, has been assigned a patent (8,352,568) developed by Kelly Walker, Raleigh, N.C., and Charles Ashley Leonard, Morrisville, N.C., for a "system, apparatus, method and computer program product for configuring disparate workstations."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system, apparatus, method and computer program product are provided for configuring disparate workstations. In particular, an administrative utility is provided that may allow users to upload to a configuration server individual configuration files for applications executing on workstations associated with physiological devices. Once uploaded, a user may group the configuration files into configuration groups based, for example, on similarities in configurations utilized. Once a configuration group has been created, the user may assign one or more workstations to each configuration group. Upon startup of a workstation, an application executing on the workstation may automatically transmit a request to the configuration server to load the configurations for that workstation. In response, the configuration server may determine to which configuration group the workstation has been assigned, and then download the configuration files of that configuration group to the workstation. The downloaded configuration files may then control the behavior of the application."
The patent application was filed on May 12, 2008 (12/119,098). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,352,568&OS=8,352,568&RS=8,352,568
