MMRGlobal To Sign Agreement With National Payment Provider to Place 1,000 MMRPro Systems

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) (www.mymedicalrecords.com), announced today that the Company has reached an agreement with National Payment Provider, LLC ("NPP") (www.paymentprovider.com) to place a minimum of 1,000 MMRPro systems in healthcare clients' offices through June 2012. NPP provides secure electronic payment processing solutions to healthcare professionals to keep them compliant with paperless billing requirements imposed on the healthcare industry to begin later this year. Starting in the third quarter, NPP will offer the MMRPro end-to-end electronic document management solution for healthcare professionals as part of its marketing and sales program to their database of more than 168,000 billing clients. NPP will offer a discounted MMRPro package to NPP clients based on the volume marketing agreement negotiated with the Company.

MMRGlobal projects revenues (including deferred revenues) from the agreement in excess of $13 million, not including patient upgrades. Based on NPP's database, the Company expects to place MMRPro in offices with an average of 2.5 physicians, each with an average of 2,000 active patient charts, or 5,000 patients per MMRPro placement. MMRGlobal projects that doctors will upgrade an average of two patients per month to MMRPro's integrated patient portal, MMRPatientView, which could potentially add more than $6.5 million in subscriber revenue over the first two years and should continue to increase year-over-year as new patients upgrade and are added to roles of existing patients.

"NPP is already working with doctors' offices, medical groups, and small hospitals to provide electronic paperless billing. It's a logical extension for them to offer MMRPro as a solution to digitize paper-based patient records and share them with patients electronically on behalf of existing clients in the process of going to paperless billing," said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MMRGlobal, Inc. "This way NPP becomes both a client's digital payment processor and document imaging provider. Because of the number of physicians in NPP's database they will offer MMRPro on a discounted basis to a minimum of 1,000 payment processing clients. This is an exciting opportunity for the Company and we look forward to it representing the beginning of a relationship where additional MMRGlobal products can be delivered to government, law enforcement agencies and other clients that NPP services."

According to Alex Pitt, Founder and CEO of National Payment Provider, "The clock is ticking for the medical profession to become paperless over the next several years, and all of our clients will require the kind of services MMRGlobal offers. We are well situated to sell MMR's products to our clients, who are, in fact, requesting this technology in order to be compliant with the government's new regulations."

Hector V. Barreto, a member of the Board of Directors of MMRGlobal, Inc., is also a member of the Board of Directors of National Payment Provider.
