MyMedicalRecords Signs Patent License Agreement With Salutopia, a Leading Patient Information EHR Provider

LOS ANGELES, CA and HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF), through its wholly owned subsidiary, MyMedicalRecords, Inc. (collectively, "MMR"), and Salutopia, Inc. jointly announced the signing of a patent license agreement. The agreement calls for MMR to receive license fees based on a percentage of the gross sales of Salutopia products and services currently projected at more than $50,000,000 based on Salutopia's sales pipeline. In exchange, Salutopia benefits from rights to MMR's growing portfolio of U.S. health information technology patents and all additional applications that are pending in the United States. Salutopia is a leading Texas-based clinical data aggregator and provider of content connecting disparate Electronic Medical Record systems, practice management systems and patient portals. The agreement gives Salutopia the ability to deliver its products and services with MMR's licensed intellectual property inside, while also allowing Salutopia to offer selected MMR proprietary features and benefits from the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (PHR). The agreement also allows MMR to offer selected proprietary products and services from Salutopia.

The relationship gives MMR and its patented intellectual property greater exposure to the healthcare IT vertical. As a market leader of integrated clinical data aggregation, Salutopia provides patients, providers and payers, including insurance companies, hospital networks, MCOs, Home Health Care organizations, ACOs (Accountable Care Organizations), IPAs (Independent Physicians Associations), Health Information Exchanges, and others, seamless interoperability of patient data across all Electronic Health Record technology systems, simplifying interconnectivity between diverse systems.

According to Fred Zolla, Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer for Salutopia, "Incorporating MMR's licensed products in our current service offerings ensures our clients a higher level of protection and gives us an advantage over our competitors."

MMR's global health information technology patent portfolio includes 12 issued U.S. patents: U.S. Patent Nos. 8,768,725, 8,121,855; 8,117,045; 8,117,646; 8,301,466; 8,321,240; 8,352,287; 8,352,288; 8,498,883; 8,626,532; 8,645,161, and 8,725,537, in addition to a recently issued Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for U.S. Application Serial No. 13/082,896, which collectively include over 290 issued claims, along with additional applications and continuation applications pending. MMR also has received issued patents and has pending applications in 11 other countries or regional authorities of commercial interest including Australia, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, Israel, and Europe.

Using MMR's patented IP, Salutopia is planning on expanding their patient portals to make it possible for patients to access, collect and manage all their medical records, including prescriptions, online in a secure and private manner. The service will also achieve, individually and collectively, seamless interoperability with one historic 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. Using MMR's patented IP, Salutopia also provides patients, any number of treating doctors, and other healthcare professionals (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. The Salutopia patient portal can reduce healthcare costs, eliminate unnecessary duplicate testing and delays in obtaining treatment, as well as other wasteful and potentially dangerous practices facing patients. Together, both companies enable patients to be involved in their own healthcare through modern communication and direct access to their complete medical history.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
