Webinar: Digital Health: Developing a Meaningful Patent Portfolio and Exploring Other IP Considerations

January 19, 2017


While the digital health industry promises a revolution in personalized healthcare by bringing together innovative software for healthcare data and cutting-edge life sciences advances, developing a meaningful patent portfolio around those innovations remains a challenge. Recent developments in the courts and at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) have increased the difficulty of protecting those innovations, particularly where the underlying software or technology may build on “abstract ideas” or “laws of nature.”

Join us for an interactive discussion exploring the question: What challenges are you encountering in patenting digital health technologies?

We will consider best practices, schemes, and tactics for:
    • Portfolio development strategies 
        • Application drafting strategies 
        • §101 and §112 patentability challenges 
    • Issues regarding IP ownership and the use of third-party databases 
    • Freedom-to-operate issues to identify and avoid
