LOS ANGELES, CA and NATICK, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF), through its wholly owned subsidiary MyMedicalRecords, Inc. (MMR), and Interbit Data (Interbit), strategic partner and Licensee, today announced that Sturgis Hospital in Michigan, a 5-Star Acute-Care hospital, has gone live with MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (PHR) and patient portal (www.mmrpatientvideos.com). According to Bob Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "After spending millions of dollars around the world on patent prosecution, MMR is successfully signing license agreements that are generating revenue."
The PHR, whose use is certified for Meaningful Use well in advance of Stage 2 requirements, is the first of its kind to be designed, built and installed by Interbit using its NetDelivery secure solution. The service is being delivered pursuant to a patent license agreement between MyMedicalRecords, Inc. and Interbit Data that carries with it rights to IP contained in seven MMR U.S. patents with nearly 400 claims pertaining to the access and provisioning of Personal Health Records, Electronic Health Records and other MMR IP bundled with NetDelivery for Interbit clients. MMR's international patent portfolio includes Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Mexico, Canada, Europe, Israel, South Korea and Japan in addition to the U.S. (http://michaelbass.com/PDF/Patent_Valuation.pdf)
Arthur Young, President of Interbit, said, "Our Interbit-MMR solution is the first of its kind that results in patients having an untethered PHR which seamlessly integrates with a hospital's MEDITECH EMR system as well as with any other healthcare professional anywhere in the world. We are very excited by the ability we have created for the hospital staff to effortlessly send the patient's data to the MMR portal, and, more than just meeting Meaningful Use requirements, begins to facilitate patients' ability to manage and control their own health information."
Lorsch added, "The Interbit-MMR solution allows patients to have immediate access to their medical records to share them with their primary care physician and specialists after discharge from the hospital, which streamlines care, reducing medical costs and exposure to readmissions." The system integrates Interbit's NetDelivery application with MMR's MMRPatientView patient portal and the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record offering a secure solution to provide access to a patient's protected health information. Interbit NetDelivery solutions are installed in 750 EMR hospital sites. The joint solution allows hospitals to seamlessly and securely provide patients with the ability to access and share their protected health information as it was created in the hospital's EMR system for access and review by patients, authorized family members, caretakers and designated healthcare professionals.
