ZYUS Life Sciences Strengthens Software Patent Portfolio Supporting Clinical Development
Three newly granted software patents enable ZYUS to leverage patient-focused, proprietary clinical and healthcare technology solutions to optimize ZYUS’ clinical trial development
SASKATOON, Saskatchewan--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ZYUS Life Sciences Inc. ("ZYUS"), a Canadian-based life sciences company leading scientific research and development in phyto-therapeutics, announced today that its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, ZYUS Life Sciences U.S. Ltd. (“ZYUS U.S.”), has received one patent allowance notification and two patent issuances from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Advancement of these software patents will further strengthen ZYUS’ clinical trial program by ensuring access to proprietary clinical and healthcare technology solutions.
Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application No. 14/945,991 (a continuation, in part, of PCT/US2014/040064) entitled: Schedule-Based Electronic Medical Record Modules, Applications, and Uses Thereof was received by the Company in late June, 2021 and issuance fees were paid on July 19, 2021. This patent covers computer programing that can be used to assemble a database of electronic data modules. This technology can be used to, among other things, identify, recruit and track participants in clinical trials.
In addition, U.S. Patent No. 11,069,430 entitled: Patient State Representation Architecture and Uses Thereof was issued July 20, 2021. This patent covers the use of a centralized system that can, among other things, include patient information collected from diagnostic devices used by patients (such as fitness trackers and consumer diagnostic equipment), allow multiple healthcare practitioners to view a patient’s health records, provide researchers with access to de-personalized patient information or be used in conjunction with applications to perform interactive health evaluations and recommend actions to maintain, or restore, a patient’s health.
Patient-First Healthcare Technology Solutions
Advancement of these patents, together with the recent issuance of U.S. Patent No.11,024,304 Virtual Assistant Companion Devices and Uses Thereof on June 1, 2021, further strengthens ZYUS’ clinical program by protecting important intellectual property used in ZYUS’ healthcare technology platform, which has also received HITRUST CSF® certification in the United States. This continued momentum accretes additional strength to the assets of Revon Systems, Inc. which ZYUS completed in 2019.
“In keeping with ZYUS’ mission to advance the science of well-being, we intend to leverage these patents through our technology platforms to optimize our clinical trials through smart registry services, real world evidence collection and patient reported outcomes tracking for identifying, recruiting and monitoring participants,” said ZYUS CEO Brent Zettl. “While this technology will allow us to increase clinical trial efficiency, it also further illustrates our commitment to patient privacy by giving us the ability to systematically depersonalize patient information accessed by researchers.”
