MMRGlobal Launches Unique Concierge Medicine Physician-Patient Electronic Point-of-Sales System


February 22, 2011 - ORLANDO, FL

MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) today announced that it is introducing an electronic point-of-sale system for physician offices, healthcare professionals and hospital systems. The system will deliver targeted messaging to physicians on the features and benefits of MMRPro, specifically the MMRPro Stimulus Program, and tips on providing Concierge Medicine. The MMRPro Stimulus Program is designed to pay substantially more money to physicians over a period of three years than the $44,000 over five years of government stimulus. The system will also continually educate physicians on the Company's suite of Internet-based end-to-end document scanning and imaging solutions for both healthcare professionals and patients.

Additionally, the displays are designed to educate patients on the importance of having a Personal Health Record, encourage them to access the MMRPatientView portal and upgrade to a full-featured MyMedicalRecords PHR account.

"One of our most significant challenges is to get patients to upgrade from an MMRPatientView account to a revenue-generating, feature-rich MyMedicalRecords account," said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, Inc. "This display program will enable MMR, in conjunction with the physician, to serve images that merchandise our products at the physician's office, while offering an interactive social entertainment program for patients that is created by the physician's office."

The point-of-sale displays are already operating in full swing at MMRGlobal's Concierge Medicine booth #3937 at HIMSS, the largest health IT conference in the U.S., currently running through Thursday in Orlando, FL. The displays are manufactured under a strategic alliance with CEIVA Logic to help launch their products in the medical industry and selected other markets.

MMR plans to offer the point-of-sales electronic frames to doctors' offices as an integral part of its sales, education and training for MMRPro. The displays enable MMR to stream company messaging in conjunction with patient and physician photos and service offerings throughout the day. Doctors have options to upload their own content while patients are able to randomly send photos directly into their doctor's office to play on the frames. The unit can also receive X-rays and other images to be viewed by the physician anywhere in a wireless office. The displays will also be featured in high-volume practice clinics to sell the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record direct to consumers.
