MMRGlobal Announces 50% Increase in Membership

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) -  MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that it is in the process of completing domestic roll-outs of its Personal Health Record product that is expected to contribute toward boosting the Company's membership by nearly 50% to approximately 750,000 by the end of this month. The Company counts members as paid users of services pre-provisioned to the Company's MyMedicalRecords PHR web site. This number does not include users from either MMRPatientView or customers of MedicAlert® Gold, which the Company operates for MedicAlert.

MMRGlobal is also confident about its growth in the professional health IT market even with the controversy surrounding the Congressional proposal to cut back the existing healthcare reform bill. Changes to the bill could have an impact on companies that sell products or services based on the government's stimulus plan incentives to doctors and hospitals. The Company's MMRPro professional solution offers a necessary first step in the integration of any EMR system, and rather than being dependent on government stimulus, has its own stimulus program that rewards healthcare professionals with monies expected to be substantially in excess of the government's four-year, $44,000 dollar payout.

As previously reported, Richard Lagani, Executive Vice President of MMRGlobal, and formerly an executive of Chartis Insurance, will leave for London in February to begin the process of a European launch of the Company's products to Chartis and other health service providers. Lagani is also currently a member of a special committee formed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to develop better ways for the intelligence committee to communicate with financial institutions, and will introduce the Company's MyEsafeDepositbox products, to the extent appropriate, as a management and emergency asset for consumers and business.
