Interbit Data Aligns With MMRGlobal in Strategic Partnership Supporting Meaningful Use of Patient Electronic Records

Healthcare IT Providers Will Offer a Joint Solution Delivering Patient Information From Healthcare Information Systems to Personal Health Records

NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - Interbit Data, a leading provider of software and services connecting people with information for more efficient healthcare, today announced a partnership with MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF), a leading provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs) and electronic document management systems for healthcare professionals and consumers. The companies will integrate Interbit Data's NetDelivery and Document Manager products with MMR's MMRPatientView and MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record to offer a solution that broadens and eases access to patient health information, meeting requirements for Meaningful Use.

The companies' joint solution utilizes NetDelivery with Document Manager to pull patient reports from a hospital's healthcare information system (HCIS), assemble them into a single, encrypted electronic file, and then deliver the file to the MMR Personal Health Record (PHR). The PHR is a secure online service that enables patients to maintain all their medical records in one central location and access them via Internet anytime and anywhere. The patient can designate third parties such as family members to also have access to their records.

This one-of-a-kind solution also presents a potential revenue opportunity for hospitals and other healthcare facilities, as it can be upgraded to a paid subscription service delivering information to the patient and any designated third parties.

"This partnership allows us to augment our portfolio of products that are certified as electronic health records modules for establishing Meaningful Use and provide our customers with the opportunity to offer Personal Health Records to their patients and possibly create a revenue stream," said Arthur Young, president of Interbit Data. "One of the requirements outlined by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for establishing Meaningful Use is to provide patients and others with electronic medical records information on request. NetDelivery and Document Manager enable that quickly, easily and securely."

"Through our partnership with Interbit Data, we create a solution that facilitates the process of assembling patient information from multiple sources and delivers it securely to our patient portal," stated Robert H. Lorsch, chairman, president and chief executive officer of MMRGlobal. "Hospitals will be able to improve the availability of information to their patient community and patients will obtain greater knowledge and control over their healthcare."
