The company, Jardogs as I have read was created by a former Allscripts executive and offers a “Universal Health Record” and according to the press release from MMRGlobal, the company has violated patents for personal health records.  The entire press release at the link at the bottom of this post gives more details.  This is not the first and you can search this blog for additional posts about their complaints against Walgreens, WebMD, etc. and way back in a post I included the embedded document that explains more about the subject. 

MMRGlobal (MyMedicalRecords.Com) Files Complaint In California Against Walgreen For Technology Patent Violations

Since last year Allscripts has been in the news with a variety of issues and now has a former Cerner executive at the top working to re-organize and get things back in order to include lawsuits, etc. that go back to the original MyWay medical records system.  The company has since dropped the lawsuit against the NYC Health system over their selection of another vendor.  In addition in this complaint, distributors, agents and resellers appear to be also included with the potential patent infringement.  BD
