Numerous medical devices require software to operate. Some Artificial Intelligence devices are entirely software. Providing patent protection for software has become difficult as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International. This program will discuss what is needed for computer algorithms, patent eligibility, and patent breath in patent applications for software in medical devices.

Here are a few trends that we are seeing in software development:

  • Intense focus on leveraging robotics solutions and the software the drives it,
  • Artificial intelligence in radiology and pathology diagnostics,
  • Cybersecurity and product design,
  • Successful software integration into healthcare IT,
