MMRGlobal Announces Emergency Access Patent in Mexico

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2014) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF), through its wholly owned subsidiary MyMedicalRecords, Inc. (collectively, "MMR"), today announced that the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) has issued an official Notice of Allowance for Mexican Patent Application No. MX/a/2012/001633. The allowed patent application is directed toward computer systems for managing Personal Health Records and communicating with healthcare providers. Of particular significance is an emergency access feature that allows emergency responders or healthcare providers to have access to important health information in a user's Personal Health Record account in the event of an emergency. MMR has additional patent applications pending relating to the emergency access feature in the U.S. and elsewhere throughout the world.

According to MMRGlobal CEO Robert H. Lorsch, "Giving patients the ability to communicate with first responders and medical personnel in the event of an emergency is a significant feature and benefit of MyMedicalRecords. The feature allows users to selectively provide access to lifesaving information without compromising the privacy of a medical record. "

A recent study entitled "Going Mobile: How Mobile Personal Health Records Can Improve Health Care During Emergencies," further validates the benefits of having comprehensive emergency access on a PHR http://mhealth.jmir.org/2014/1/e8/.
