MMRGlobal and Alcatel-Lucent Enable Patients to Upload Monitored Vital Signs Directly Into MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that it is working with Alcatel-Lucent to integrate the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record with Alcatel-Lucent's TeleHealth Manager solution to simplify the collection and notification of vital health records.

Alcatel-Lucent's TeleHealth Manager is a remote patient monitoring service that leverages the mobile networks of service providers to improve health care. It allows patients and health care professionals to monitor and manage chronic health issues, such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. When seamlessly integrated with the MMR-branded Personal Health Record, medical history and alerts on blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and more can be shared among patients and health care professionals using smartphones, tablets and other web-connected devices. As a result, better health awareness is provided enabling greater patient independence, as well an improved early detection and prevention.

The MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (www.mmrvideos.com) gives consumers the ability to have greater control over their health care by providing a secure, easy-to-use online source for keeping all their medical records and vital health information in one safe convenient location accessible anytime from anywhere in the world. With the fundamental shift away from paper-based records to computerized medical records, MMR offers patients the ability to store and organize everything from lab and radiology reports and physician progress notes to immunization records and family health history. The MyMedicalRecords PHR also is a valuable emergency preparedness tool both at home or on the road, featuring a special Emergency Login for emergency medical personnel as well as an online EsafeDepositBox.

Alcatel-Lucent is featuring live demonstrations (booth #433) at the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) 2011 Annual Meeting, May 1-3, in Tampa, Florida. The ATA event is the premier educational and networking event for individuals involved in health technology and remote medical services. ATA reaches the world's largest gathering of telehealth professionals, including researchers, clinicians, administrators and technicians, all focused on the development of telemedicine.

According to Jim White, Alcatel-Lucent Vice President of Connected Hospital Sales, "The integration of TeleHealth Manager with MMR's Personal Health Record is an example of how putting all health information in one place via remote patient monitoring makes it easy for patients to update and take control of their health. It simplifies managing of personal health information for better overall care."
