The patent-infringement suit, filed Monday in a Delaware district court, relates to nine patents Teladoc says it owns. The filing asks for unspecified damages as well as action permanently barring Amwell from the alleged infringement. bcj世界播

The dispute between the two remote-care companies comes as competition intensifies in a corner of the U.S. health-care system that has received a jolt from regulatory changes aimed at easing access to care during the coronavirus pandemic. bcj世界播

这两家远程医疗公司之间的纠纷发生之际,美国医疗体系一角的竞争加剧,监管改革旨在方便人们在冠状病毒大流行期间获得医疗服务,这对美国医疗体系造成了冲击。bcj世界播


A federal action that allowed remote-care visits to be reimbursed by insurers at the same rate as in-person visits drove record numbers of patients to connect with doctors via telehealth services and videoconferencing tools like Zoom. Remote-care visits are now used for primary and urgent care as well as to keep patients with mild Covid-19 cases out of hospitals or monitor those with severe cases who have been discharged and are convalescing at home. bcj世界播

一项允许保险公司以与面对面访问相同的费率报销远程护理访问的联邦行动推动了创纪录数量的患者通过远程医疗服务和Zoom等视频会议工具与医生联系。远程医疗现在被用于初级和紧急护理,以及让新冠肺炎轻度病例的患者出院,或者监测那些严重病例已经出院并在家中康复的患者。bcj世界播


Telehealth boosters say virtual visits, which many patients were slow to adopt before the pandemic, promise to extend the reach of doctors and specialists beyond their physical footprint, which may improve accessibility of care in remote places. bcj世界播

远程医疗支持者表示,许多患者在大流行之前接受虚拟就诊的速度很慢,这有望将医生和专家的覆盖范围扩大到他们的实体足迹之外,这可能会改善偏远地区的医疗服务可及性。bcj世界播


The patents at issue in the Teladoc suit stem from a company called InTouch Technologies Inc. that it agreed to buy in January. Acquiring the remote-care company helped Teladoc build out its ability to connect patients in hospitals with specialists using video screens mounted on carts that can be wheeled around health-care facilities. bcj世界播

Teladoc诉讼中存在争议的专利来自一家名为InTouch Technologies Inc.的公司。它在一月份同意购买。收购这家远程医疗公司帮助Teladoc建立了将医院患者与专家联系起来的能力,使用安装在可以推着医疗设施的手推车上的视频屏幕。bcj世界播


For example, a doctor connected via video through a tablet mounted on a cart could oversee an exam in a hospital room while instructing a nurse or colleague to collect relevant treatment and health data—and also talk to the patient. Some of these robot-like carts include digital stethoscopes and thermal cameras. bcj世界播

例如,通过安装在手推车上的平板电脑通过视频连接的医生可以在医院房间监督检查,同时指示护士或同事收集相关治疗和健康数据-还可以与患者交谈。其中一些类似机器人的手推车包括数字听诊器和热像仪。bcj世界播


Such services offer an opportunity for telehealth companies to forge new relationships with large hospital systems and can help those organizations expand their offerings. bcj世界播

此类服务为远程医疗公司提供了与大型医院系统建立新关系的机会,并可帮助这些组织扩展其服务范围。bcj世界播


“Our team is in the process of reviewing the allegations. We believe that these claims lack merit and intend to defend against them vigorously,” said an Amwell spokeswoman. bcj世界播

“我们的团队正在审查这些指控。我们认为这些指控缺乏可取之处,并打算对其进行有力的辩护,“安威尔的一位女发言人说。bcj世界播

Teladoc的一位发言人说,该公司相信其竞争对手在诉讼中侵犯了专利。bcj世界播

监管备案文件显示,在截至6月30日的季度里,Teladoc促进了270万次访问,而Amwell的平台实现了220万次访问。这两家公司都还没有实现盈利。bcj世界播


Teladoc wrote to Amwell last month notifying the company that some of its products, including telemedicine carts, infringed on its patents and asked the company to immediately stop selling, making and using them. bcj世界播

Teladoc上个月写信给Amwell,通知该公司包括远程医疗车在内的一些产品侵犯了其专利,并要求该公司立即停止销售、制造和使用这些产品。bcj世界播


The patents relate to products that accounted for about 5% of Amwell’s revenue in 2019, the company said at the time. It offers Carepoint kiosks and carts in settings like emergency rooms and health clinics that also connect patients with caregivers. bcj世界播

该公司当时表示,这些专利涉及占安威尔2019年营收约5%的产品。它在急诊室和医疗诊所等环境中提供Carepoint售货亭和手推车,这些设施也将患者与护理人员联系起来。bcj世界播
