A product that I'm developing implements half of the 28 claims mentioned in this patent application: https://www.google.co.il/patents/WO2014111933A1?cl=en

Am I infringing the patent if it is granted? or do I need to implement all claims to infringe it?

What is the chance of this patent actually being granted as the 1st Claim basically describes any medical records software out there ?


Please note WIPO application is just a publication and not granted patent. if its get grant in US with same claim below situations can be made.

For US granted patents:- In accordance of 35 U.S.C. § 271(a):-

...whoever without authority makes, uses, offers to sell, or sells any patented invention, within the United States or imports into the United States any patented invention during the term of the patent therefor, infringes the patent.

On number of claims to access are defined by case law as

To prove direct infringement, the plaintiff must establish by a preponderance of the evidence that one or more claims of the patent read on the accused device literally or under the doctrine of equivalents. Advanced Cardiovascular Sys., Inc. v. Scimed Life Sys., Inc., 261 F.3d 1329, 1336 (Fed.Cir.2001) Link

Form Method or Process base claim, every step is to be present.

Literal infringement requires that each and every limitation set forth in a claim appear in an accused product. Franks Casing Crew & Rental Tools, Inc. v. Weatherford Int'l, Inc., 389 F.3d 1370, 1378 (Fed.Cir.2004) Link
