Ocean Tomo Auctions - the auctions arm of Ocean Tomo, LLC, the leading Intellectual Capital Merchant Banc(R) firm - today announced it will place several highly innovative Telemedical Information Management Systems patents on the auction block at its upcoming Live IP Auction at the Chicago Cultural Center on October 30th.

"Many of the patents being offered in the Telemedical Information Management System category relate to proprietary technologies that can fundamentally change medical information management practices industry-wide. For example, a few of the patents are directed to greatly improving the effectiveness and efficiency of maintaining medical systems - an area that is becoming increasingly more complex," said Andrew T. Ramer, President of Ocean Tomo Auctions. "These patents are highly innovative and unique in the industry and present valuable acquisition opportunities for any company providing medical services, including medical imaging companies, medical hardware manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies."

Specifically, Lot 42 relates to a method for securely storing and retrieving information through an implantable device capable of recording and reading an individual's identifying, descriptive, and medical data.
