InTouch Health and VGo Communications, Inc. Provide Update on Patent Litigation
May 22 14
InTouch Health announced that in its patent litigation with VGo Communications, Inc., the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed the trial court's findings of invalidity on two key patents. The Federal Circuit confirmed the validity of InTouch Health's U.S. patent nos. 6,925,357 and 7,593,030, which are directed to systems and methods for arbitrating access to remote presence telemedicine robots among multiple doctors and advanced practice clinicians. A number of InTouch Health patents and pending applications are related to the '357 and '030 patents. The Federal Circuit's decision strengthens the validity of this entire patent family. Moreover, InTouch Health recently prevailed on appeal in several patent reexaminations before the U.S. Patent Office that were requested by VGo. The U.S. Patent Office confirmed U.S. patent nos. 7,222,000, 7,289,883, and 7,310,570 while a fourth reexamination remains pending. These patents protect a variety of features that are fundamental to making remote presence telemedicine robots commercially viable.
