LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records ("PHRs"), MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced the launch of seamless connectivity between the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record and Electronic Medical Record ("EMR") systems in medical clinics starting April 15, 2013. The new features facilitate connectivity with any EMR or EHR system and also laboratory reporting systems. Using an HL7 interface, MMR will be able to populate data, such as a Continuity of Care Document ("CCD"), directly to the patient as well as lab test results, medication lists and other discrete data which will be directly deposited into the MyMedicalRecords PHR. At the option of the patient, the system will also be able to push PDFs and other personally managed health information from the patient's confidentially maintained files directly into an EMR or EHR. The April 15th deployment is part of a joint development effort with a 4medica client using 4medica's Certified for Meaningful Use Integrated Electronic Health Record (4medica iEHR®); however, the system will be available to any EMR system.
According to MMRGlobal CEO Robert H. Lorsch, "The new connectivity adds significant value to our suite of Personal Health Record products and services for physicians, hospitals and other EMR users. This is the first application of its kind to allow a patient to access medical records collected throughout their life and from multiple physicians and integrate them into their primary care physician's EHR or EMR system. We believe this will increase adoption of our services by providers and their patients by offering the ability to share electronic data and images of a patient's medical records in two directions."
This capability is made possible through MMR's patented online MyMedicalRecords PHR and extensive healthcare IT patent portfolio. The MyMedicalRecords integrated technology platform allows individuals and families the ability to store, retrieve and share documents, images and other forms of protected health information and vital documents using a variety of methods, including fax, phone and Internet among other protocols without relying on any specific Electronic Medical Record platform to originally populate a user's account.
