Judge Strikes Down Patent Claims by EHR Vendor

A United States District Court has ruled against an EHR vendor which claimed broad patent protection over shared health information.

In the case decided by Wright, Kamdar said MyMedicalRecords asserted a patent that covered a method of providing online personal health records in a private, secure way.
