As discussed on Foley’s Health Care Law Today blog, personalized medicine treatment trends and innovations are leading diagnostic and therapeutic companies to form complex arrangements and partnerships with the ultimate goal of delivering improved patient treatment. Diagnostics are married to a single or multiple treatments. Devices connect patients with providers. Health care systems may partner with data analytics companies. But do these partnerships that facilitate the creation and delivery of personalized health care adequately protect IP and/or foster potential IP liability for the innovations and their partners?
