MyMedicalRecords Presents Personal Health Records in Federal Court

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF), through its wholly owned subsidiary MyMedicalRecords, Inc. (collectively, "MMR"), appeared Wednesday, June 18 in the United States District Court, Central District of California, where plaintiff MyMedicalRecords, Inc., and defendant(s) Quest Diagnostics, Inc., Empty Jar, LLC f/k/a Jardogs, LLC, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc., WebMD Health Corp. and WebMD Health Services Group, appeared before the Honorable Otis D. Wright, II to provide both the plaintiff's and the defendants' tutorial of the technology at issue in the cases. MMR focused its technology tutorial on the invention including a demonstration of the technology as available on MyMedicalRecords.com. The tutorials were designed to assist the Court in understanding the nature and operation of the invention covered by the two MMR Personal Health Record patents at issue in the litigation, specifically, U.S. Patent Nos. 8,301,466 and 8,498,883. The tutorials were part of the Markman proceedings designed to interpret disputes in patent claim language. The Markman process also includes the filing of opening, opposition and reply claim construction briefs which will be the subject of a scheduled August 19th, 2014 Markman hearing before Judge Wright.

Attorneys for MMR made the presentation with MMR Chief Executive Officer and patent inventor Robert H. Lorsch. During the presentation, MMR showed the Court samples of its new MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record Kit which was created for sale at retail following the signing of patent license and retail sales agreements with retailers representing more than 40 million customers starting this summer. The Company also plans on announcing licensing and settlement agreements with PHR and EMR vendors prior to an upcoming new business trip to Australia next week.

In his presentation, Lorsch recounted his story as a cancer survivor and the challenging environment in healthcare that existed prior to 2005. As a result, he invented the comprehensive product that now makes it possible for medical consumers to access, collect and manage their medical records, including prescriptions, online in a secure and private manner. The product is also designed to achieve seamless interoperability with one consolidated medical record for patients and all their family members regardless of the number of physicians and the technology on the other end of the PHR. He pointed out that MMR's technology provides patients, any number of treating doctors, and other medical personnel (including emergency room physicians and staff) access to complete, secure and private medical information whenever and wherever it's needed from anywhere in the world. MMR's technology, he noted, can reduce healthcare costs, eliminate unnecessary duplicate testing and delays in obtaining treatment, as well as other wasteful and potentially dangerous practices facing patients.

In addition to providing background into the invention, Lorsch's presentation also included an account of a family with multiple family members including Charlie Brown, the family pet. Lorsch also spoke of his own personal experience using the MyMedicalRecords PHR to manage his health, and help avert an operation, by transmitting his own emergency medical records when he was hospitalized not long ago. His experience is described in detail on the MMRGlobal blog Home from the Hospital which is available at http://blog.mmrglobal.com/2013/11/25/home-from-the-hospital/.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
