LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records ("PHR"), MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced its global lineup at the annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, February 21-24, 2012, in Booth #2062. The Company will be joined in Las Vegas at the Health IT trade show by international strategic partners from Australia, Jacques Blandin, Chairman and Founder of VisiInc, PLC, and from China, Luo Jianhui, Vice President and Chairman of Unisoft Group, Unis-Tonghe Technology (Zhengzhou) Co., Ltd. Alcatel-Lucent, a majority owner of Shanghai Bell, will also support MMR with the Company's Unis-Tonghe relationship in China. MMR U.S. strategic partner Interbit Data will demonstrate a customized version of MMRPatientView, developed exclusively for MEDITECH's Electronic Medical Record ("EMR") systems. Also present in the booth will be strategic development partner UST Global who is connecting MMR to UST EMR solutions.
The Company will also demonstrate how its patented MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record connects to telemedicine solutions from Alcatel-Lucent and pharmacy and lab data reporting systems through 4medica, both companies also exhibitors at HIMSS. The MMR booth will be designed around the Company's theme, "The Future of Your Health at Work Today," and as such, will feature its newly developed mobile and tablet Personal Health Record and emergency portals along with the latest versions of MMRPro. MMRPro is a high-volume document imaging and scanning solution designed to eliminate paper by digitizing the offices of healthcare professionals. The Company will feature its latest versions of MMRPro on both Kodak and Fujitsu scanning solutions at HIMSS. The combination of features and benefits makes MMR products and services the most comprehensive Personal Health Record and electronic document management system in the market today.
"While the use of EMRs grows worldwide, the need to convert existing plain paper medical records also increases. MMRPro deals with the problems of digitally converting existing paper files when an EMR is being installed and manages the ongoing process of digitizing new patient records as they come into the office after an EMR is up and running. Since the launch of MMRPro, the system has securely and cost effectively scanned, processed and stored millions of pages of patient records, receiving more than 1,000 pages per day from the average MMRPro physician practice. Based on the success in the U.S., we anticipate taking MMRPro global starting with our Australian and Chinese partners, which can represent significant revenues here and abroad," said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, Inc.
