LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) today announced it will launch an Integrated Wellness Mobile App in response to customer requests to integrate wellness services with a Personal Health Record (PHR), at the HIMSS 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition, booth #3363, starting March 3rd in New Orleans. The App is a comprehensive, mobile self-management system which allows users to take control of their own health and wellness, connect wirelessly with their MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record, and share information with health providers and wellness coaches. The mobile app, built by MMR with MyVitaLink®, is part of a collaboration with Alcatel-Lucent's ng Connect Program (http://youtu.be/2dnlkHXW4z8 ). The addition of a wellness platform to the MyMedicalRecords PHR will enable the Company to begin competing in the growing marketplace of health and wellness apps.
According to Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "We have seen an increasing number of mobile apps that appear to infringe on MMR's electronic medical record patents and other intellectual property. As a result, we have started noticing developers of possible patent infringements similar to the way the Company notices hospitals, vendors and providers. At the same time, we are working with resellers and portals that publish and distribute apps on licensing programs they can offer to clients who resell through their portals. Meanwhile, we are also creating this App in response to the growing demand from existing customers for PHRs that include health and wellness features and benefits."
At HIMSS13, MMR will feature its MyMedicalRecords PHR including the new MyVitaLink health and wellness offering as well as the Company's MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and its MMRPro document management and imaging system for healthcare professionals. The Company will also be joined by its development partner, Nihilent Technologies, and Interbit Data. MMR and Interbit have developed a module that integrates Interbit Data's NetDelivery products with MMR's MMRPatientView and MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record to offer a secure solution that broadens and eases access to patient health information. The Interbit Data-MMR module is already being installed in hospitals and is certified for Meaningful Use with MEDITECH systems. MEDITECH is being used by more than 750 hospitals nationwide.
