Cave Consulting Group Awarded $12M In Patent Infringement Case

cave group

A California federal jury awarded Cave Consulting Group,  roughly $12 million after determining that UnitedHealth Group’s subsidiary OptumInsight infringed Cave Consulting Group’s patent for measuring physician efficiency. The jury also rejected OptumInsight’s counterclaim that Cave Consulting Group infringed OptumInsight’s patent for processing medical claims data. The federal jury determined that OptumInsight infringed the ‘126 Patent by operating and licensing its Impact Intelligence software, a competing solution for developing physician efficiency scores.

In response to Cave Consulting Group’s lawsuit, OptumInsight filed counterclaims asserting that Cave Consulting Group infringed eight patents relating to the processing of medical claims data. Cave Consulting Group defeated seven of those patents in pre-trial proceedings and obtained a jury finding of non-infringement on the eighth at trial.

The case is Cave Consulting Group Inc. v. OptumInsight Inc., case number 5:11-cv-00469, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Cave Consulting Group is represented by Richard Brophy, David Harlan, Mark Thomas and Zach Howenstine of Armstrong Teasdale and Andrew Leibnitz of Farella Braun + Martel.
