LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/13 -- MyMedicalRecords, Inc. ("MMR"), a wholly owned subsidiary of MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF), today announced the filing of a complaint for patent infringement against Jardogs LLC, a subsidiary of Allscripts. The complaint states that Jardogs provides health information services to consumers and healthcare providers and is infringing on MMR's Personal Health Records patents including U.S. Patent No. 8,301,466. According to the complaint, Jardogs provides a product called FollowMyHealth Universal Health Record, which it describes as the "next generation patient portal, combining patient-provider communication with a patient managed personal health record." MMR is seeking monetary damages as well as a permanent injunction. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, case number CV: 13-3560, on May 16, 2013, and is available on the court's website http://www.pacer.gov/.
The complaint alleges that Jardogs, while infringing on MMR's patent, also has induced others including Allscripts, distributors, agents, resellers and users to infringe one or more claims of the patent.
According to Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "MMR's business is selling our Personal Health Record products and services and monetizing our patents and other intellectual property both domestically and internationally. We are currently focused on meeting with large hospital groups, retail pharmacies, laboratory systems, EHR and PHR vendors and physician groups. As I have stated in the past, our preferred course is to always create reasonable business solutions where both sides feel like winners. As part of those efforts, we are continuing to send hundreds of letters to hospitals and healthcare professionals. Based on conversations and meetings I continue to attend, I am optimistic that those efforts will be successful."
