LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/12 -- In anticipation of Hurricane Sandy and the forecasts that it is morphing into a "Perfect Storm" impacting 60 million people up and down the East Coast, health IT company MMRGlobal (OTCBB: MMRF) today announced a program that provides secure and easy storage of Personal Health Records (PHRs) and supports the American Red Cross.

According to Asa Hutchinson, the nation's first Under Secretary of Homeland Security and a member of MMRGlobal's Board of Advisors, "Having access to medical records and other vital documents in a Personal Health Record in addition to emergency supplies of important medications could ultimately save your life or that of a family member. So much grief can be avoided by simply taking a few minutes to set up a Personal Health Record and being prepared."
To help consumers get started with a Personal Health Record, MMR is offering a 30-day trial of its MyMedicalRecords.com service for $1, a 90% discount off the normal cost with 100% going to the American Red Cross. The Personal Health Record provides all the tools necessary for individuals and their family, including pets, to have access to their medical records and other important documents including insurance policies and financial records as well as photos of children, pets and property in an emergency. The Company will also make a matching contribution to the American Red Cross for each signup to aid in disaster preparedness and recovery efforts through the end of this year.
"With a MyMedicalRecords.com account, your medical records can be accessed from anywhere in the world over the Internet so emergency personnel have access to potentially life-saving information such as your health history, pre-existing conditions, blood type, allergies and current medications," said Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO.
