MMRGlobal Introduces Worldwide Standardized Personal Health Record and Document Management System to America's Military


March 16, 2012 - LOS ANGELES, CA

MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs) and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced it presented the Company's patented Personal Health Record products and services for active military, civilian personnel, veterans and America's wounded warriors at the Military Electronic Health Records Conference, March 15-16, in Washington, D.C. MMR is no stranger to Wounded Warriors initiatives, having sponsored The Thalians benefit for Operation Mend. The event chaired by MMRGlobal Chief Executive Officer Robert H. Lorsch and Company Spokesperson Kira Reed Lorsch raised more than $1 million last year for the Operation Mend program that helps heal severely wounded U.S. service members.

The Company's standardized approach to health information technology offers seamless connectivity to personal health information for military and civilian personnel wherever they are stationed in the world. Using the Company's MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record technology, medical records and other important documents can be securely managed for active duty personnel and veterans and their families from any hospital or healthcare facility in the world to the most advanced electronic medical record systems currently being deployed by the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Veterans Affairs and major contractors. The system also acts as a communications and message center for the entire family to share photos, notes and videos when a family member is away.

According to Richard M. Lagani, MMRGlobal Executive Vice President, "Our nation's wounded warriors are receiving care from doctors, hospitals and healthcare professionals in locations around the world, and what we are learning is that MyMedicalRecords is one of the only services of its kind that is ready to be deployed anywhere in the world that our military is deployed. Despite the fact that standardization across varied systems in the DoD/VA environment is rare, MMR can seamlessly connect to any medical facility in the world regardless of the level of technology employed without significant connectivity or integration costs."

MMR management is meeting with military and civilian personnel at the Military EHR Conference who are working on DoD/VA interoperability. MMR's patented solutions meet the needs of both the DoD and VA, providing access from virtually anywhere through any web-enabled device. Furthermore, MMR offers the one solution that easily bridges the gap between civilian and military health records for active duty personnel and their families.

Each MyMedicalRecords account can cover a family of up to 10 members, providing secure storage, retrieval and sharing of personal health information and actual copies of medical records and medical images such as X-rays and CT scans in addition to any important document needed in an emergency. In addition to safely maintaining a full range of personal health data for easy access, including lab reports and test results, conditions, medications and immunization records, MyMedicalRecords also includes multiple special "lockbox" folders with secondary passwords to protect other important documents such as military discharge papers, gun permits, passports, birth and marriage certificates, insurance policies, and deeds of trust. Moreover, because of its patented integrated telecommunications platform, the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record also incorporates an online pin-protected voice mailbox.
