LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 11, 2012) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that it has agreements in place to launch the Company's health IT products and services in Europe. MMR plans on installing its MMRPro document management and imaging system in St. Helens Hospital in the United Kingdom (www.sthk.nhs.uk). As a result of the Company's existing relationships and agreements with Kodak distributors, Chartis and others, MMR is expanding in the UK and France, which will also include its MyMedicalRecords Personal health Record (PHR).
According to Richard M. Lagani, MMRGlobal Executive Vice President, "In response to a global initiative to adopt Electronic Medical Record systems and Personal Health Records, I have made numerous presentations in Europe over the past several years and now will begin the process of offering MMRPro and MyMedicalRecords PHR services across the UK and in other countries in Europe."
In addition, following MMRGlobal's Annual Meeting of Stockholders on June 20, 2012, the Company will host a management meeting in Los Angeles with Luo Jianhui, Vice-President and Chairman of Unisoft Group, Unis-Tonghe Technology (Zhengzhou) Co., Ltd., regarding the Joint Venture agreement between Unis and MMR, which has recently received several governmental approvals in China. Luo Jianhui will also be accompanied by executives from Alcatel-Lucent in China who are working with MMR and Unis to launch the Unis Tonghe MMR International Health Management Service Co., Ltd. Electronic Medical Record systems business.
In Australia, MMR is working with its licensee VisiInc PLC to market Personal Health Records to government, healthcare professionals and consumers. The Visi PHR will incorporate Personal Health Record patents issued in Australia and owned by MMR. There continues to be significant movement regarding the adoption of PHRs in Australia. Starting July 1, 2012, patients will be able to opt-in and register to have an eHealth record where they can create their health summary, such as listing their medications and allergies. The entire process is projected to take as long as 10 years, which underscores the value of MMR's patents and the VisiInc relationship.
