Written by Bob Lorsch, MMR CEO, the Company's objective is to familiarize consumers with the benefits and importance of Personal Health Records and create a forum for users to share stories and benefits with one another on how they use PHRs, why they use them, how they have benefited from them, or how they have benefitted managing a specific disease or disaster by having a Personal Health Record.

The Company will feature stories that come from users of its MyMedicalRecords, MyEsafeDepositBox, MyMedicalRecordsMD and MMRPatientView products and services.

"Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, former Congressman and House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt, former Homeland Security Under Secretary Asa Hutchinson, and former Small Business Administrator Hector Barreto, now Chairman of The Latino Coalition, have been extremely helpful in bringing MMR's unique technology to the public's attention, and with the support the Company has, I recently met with Dr. David Blumenthal, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology," Lorsch said. Kira Reed is featured on all the Company's websites and assists on the Company's social media strategy.

"As a publically traded Company, MMR is reaching out to our shareholders and others who we hope will take advantage of and benefit from our Personal Health Record products. We want those who do to participate in sharing their stories with others via social media, a process that MMR is using as part of its educational activities to the public," said Lorsch.

"In expanding our services globally as a leading technology provider of Personal Health Records and document imaging products for healthcare professionals in the form of entry level Electronic Medical Records (EMR), MMR is at the forefront of providing tools that enable users to instantaneously share up-to-the-minute information regarding the best ways to ensure the best healthcare for themselves, their families, and even their pets," added Lorsch.

MyMedicalRecords.com will be launched in many countries around the world through its agreement with Chartis International, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Korea, Singapore, Philippines, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand and others in the first wave of deployment to 160 countries worldwide. MMR's products will initially be available through Chartis in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese. MMR's strategic partner, Kodak, will also be an international partner in other parts of the world, including the Pacific Rim and the Company's future operations in India.

Facts for discussion:
The Company also hopes that its social media efforts, products and other information will become part of the debate on the Obama Administration's healthcare reforms now underway. 
In the last year there were hundreds of millions in grants for pilot projects to test healthcare information technology throughout the United States intended to encourage development and use of systems to connect doctors, hospitals and patients. The grants are designed to create as many as 1,100 jobs, each paying an average of $70,000 per year. The Obama's $862 billion economic stimulus measure encourages doctors and hospitals to adopt electronic health records and includes billions to develop technology so every American can have their own electronic personal health record by 2014. Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said the federal government will pump an additional $162 million to states to pay for technology to support electronic medical records which leads to the use of Personal Health Records.
