Cardiocom files for Inter Partes Review of University of Rochester’s Patient Monitoring and Treatment Patent

Cardiocom, LLC, filed a petition last Friday with the Patent Trial and Appeal Board requesting inter partes review of claims 1-9 of University of Rochester’s U.S. Patent No. 6,612,985.

The ‘985 patent is entitled “Methods and System for Monitoring and Treating a Patient.”  The patent specification states that the patent relates to “a method and system for monitoring and treating a patient who has one or more diagnosed conditions and is located at a remote location from a treatment processing system.”

The ‘985 patent is the subject of a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas by University of Rochester and purported licensee My Health, Inc. against Cardiocom.  The complaint refers to Cardiocom’s use of allegedly infringing “sales of products incorporating the University’s technology[,]” including “a unique technology that assists healthcare providers in monitoring and treating patients.”
