Apple’s HealthKit Faces Patent Lawsuit

Apple has been sued for patent infringement regarding HealthKit technology by New Jersey-based LMG 3 Marketing and Development Corp which holds two patents related to the digitization and storage of a patient’s medical records on a mobile device. Those patents were granted in 2002, 12 years before Apple unveiled HealthKit and a slew of mobile apps aimed at health care providers.

Much of the new tools similarly digitize and store patient records for easy access by those providers. LMG 3 claims that Apple touted the adoption of these tools by major health care institutions, some of which had already been approached by LMG 3 with its technology.
