We developed the Home Automated Telemanagement (HAT) system for patients on oral anticoagulation therapy. It consists of a home unit, HAT server, and clinician unit. Patients at home use a palmtop or a laptop connected with a prothrombin time (PT) monitor. Each HAT session consists of self-testing, feedback, and educational components. The symptom data and(More)
Molecular dynamics simulations are used to examine the cross-stream chain migration phenomenon in dilute polymer solutions that are flowing in nanochannels. In particular, both uniform planar shear (Couette) and pressure driven (Poiseuille) flows of a dilute polymer solution are studied using a bead-spring representation of polymer chains and a coarse(More)
We have studied the effect of chain topology on the structural properties and diffusion of polymers in a dilute solution in a good solvent. Specifically, we have used three different simulation techniques to compare the chain size and diffusion coefficient of linear and ring polymers in solution. The polymer chain is modeled using a bead-spring(More)
Successful patient self-management requires a multidisciplinary approach that includes regular patient assessment, disease-specific education, control of medication adherence, implementation of health behavior change models and social support. Existing systems for computer-assisted disease management do not provide this multidisciplinary patient support and(More)
Institute of Medicine defines "patient safety" as a set of measures taken by healthcare professionals to prevent adverse outcomes from medical errors. Kohn estimated that medical errors are likely to result in a death of 44,000 to 98,000 people in U.S. hospitals each year, making it almost the fifth leading cause of death. The costs of medical errors, made(More)
We present an analysis of heterogeneous dynamics in molecular dynamics simulations of a polymeric film supported by an absorbing surface. Using a bead-spring model for polymers, we show that slow, immobile beads occur throughout the film, with the probability of their occurrence decreasing with distance from the substrate. Still, enough immobile beads are(More)
Here we demonstrate through experiment and simulation the polymer-assisted dispersion of inorganic 2D layered nanomaterials such as boron nitride nanosheets (BNNSs), molybdenum disulfide nanosheets (MoS2), and tungsten disulfide nanosheets (WS2), and we show that spray drying can be used to alter such nanosheets into a crumpled morphology. Our data indicate(More)
As a first step toward understanding the energetics of removal of cello-oligomers from the cellulose surface, we have performed umbrella sampling calculations to determine the free energy required for separation of repeating units of cellulose and hemicellulose from each other. Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were performed for both the stacked and(More)
Using a micromechanical cantilever device, the surface stress induced during the growth of alkanedithiol (HS(CH2)nSH) monolayers on gold in solution is continuously monitored and reported. Adsorption of alkanedithiols of varying chain lengths is observed and compared to each other, as well as to the adsorption of hydroxyalkanethiols (HS(CH2)nOH) and(More)
