Of the many companies mentioned in the iHT2 article, MMR is in talks with nearly all of them and met with two of them in New York pursuant to previously negotiated non-disclosure agreements, and also held its first meeting with Dossia. The Company has also filed patent infringement litigation against Walgreens, Quest Diagnostics and Jardogs which it is actively working to resolve.
Last week, the Company announced the receipt of a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for U.S. Patent Application Serial No. 13/714,720 entitled, "Method for Providing a User with a Service for Accessing and Collecting Prescriptions" which MMR believes will have significant impact on the Company's efforts to sell, license and otherwise exploit its products and services. The MMR Patent Portfolio already includes seven issued U.S. patents -- U.S. Patent Nos. 8,301,466; 8,352,287; 8,352,288; 8,121,855; 8,117,646; 8,117,045; and 8,321,240 -- as well as additional applications and continuation applications with nearly 400 claims.
MMR's patents involve inventions pertaining to Personal Health Records, Patient Portals and other Electronic Health Record systems which the Company sells and licenses. In addition to its issued patents and recent NOA, MMR's health information technology patent portfolio also includes numerous issued patents and pending applications in other countries of commercial interest including Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Mexico, Japan, Canada, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Israel, and European nations.
MMR is a leading provider of Personal Health Records, MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions, and MMRPro document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals. According to Lorsch, the Institute for Health Technology Transformation article also demonstrates that after eight years, MMR is in the right place at the right time. Patient engagement is key to a cost-effective healthcare system and MMR's products and services and patented IT tools can make a difference in the cost of healthcare and, more importantly, outcomes. The entertaining video located on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J67xJKpB6c demonstrates the features and benefits of a PHR and highlights the inefficiencies and challenges facing the U.S. health system.
MMRGlobal, Inc., through its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, MyMedicalRecords, Inc., provides secure and easy-to-use online Personal Health Records ("PHRs") and electronic safe deposit box storage solutions, serving consumers, healthcare professionals, employers, insurance companies, financial institutions, retail pharmacies, and professional organizations and affinity groups. The MyMedicalRecords PHR enables individuals and families to access their medical records and other important documents, such as birth certificates, passports, insurance policies and wills, anytime from anywhere using the Internet. MyMedicalRecords is built on proprietary, patented technologies to allow documents, images and voicemail messages to be transmitted and stored in the system using a variety of methods, including fax, phone, or file upload without relying on any specific electronic medical record platform to populate a user's account. MMR's professional offering, MMRPro, is designed to give physicians' offices an easy and cost-effective solution to digitizing paper-based medical records and sharing them with patients through an integrated patient portal. Through its merger with Favrille, Inc. in January 2009, MMR acquired intellectual property biotech assets that include anti-CD20 antibodies and data and samples from its FavId/Specifid vaccine clinical trials for the treatment of B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
