I was doing nothing this morning so I decided to look around for some new trademarks. And I found two interesting ones. The first one is called Caradigm. The trademark has multiple filings with Microsoft and GE named as applicants. Caradigm deals with managing health records, transferring these records between devices, provide consulting services for health institutes, as well as, creating an online repository to share medical expertise and best practices.

The descriptions for the 5 trademarks are around managing medical records. Here are the different descriptions:
