MMR Information Systems' Medical Advisor Dr. Arnold W. Klein Authors Guide on Personal Health Records

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 30, 2009) - MMR Information Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) announced today that it is offering a free guide to Personal Health Records ("PHRs") by Dr. Arnold W. Klein, a world-renowned Beverly Hills Dermatologist, through its MyMedicalRecords PHR website www.mymedicalrecords.com. The Company made the announcement in response to the White House declaring the H1N1 "Swine Flu" virus a National Emergency.

"We believe that as a good corporate citizen, we should help educate the public as to why having a Personal Health Record is so important," said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMR Information Systems, Inc. "The expanding Swine Flu pandemic makes access to a family's health information from all their providers possibly the difference between life and death, especially in an Emergency Room situation. Only 11 million doses of Swine Flu vaccine have shipped as of mid-October, far short of the 120 million doses that the government projected to have available at this time. The H1N1 threat means that there is a good possibility that a patient being treated for the virus will see multiple providers or even be hospitalized, adding even greater urgency for the need to have copies of medical records readily available."

"The MyMedicalRecords PHR is provider-agonistic," Lorsch emphasized. "A MyMedicalRecords PHR can accept medical records from any doctor, hospital, laboratory, radiology clinic or other provider. Each account covers up to 10 family members so both faxed and uploaded records can be maintained from everyone's doctors, making it easier and more efficient for all members to share information between their multiple healthcare providers. This is vitally important because it means a family can have one central repository where it can store medical records for parents, children -- even grandparents. Because the Swine Flu has especially impacted children, and seniors remain the most vulnerable to seasonal flu, being able to store and quickly retrieve information for different family members is of great value."
