MMRGlobal CEO Discusses Opportunities in Health IT at the Health Technology Investment Forum

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) (www.mmrglobal.com), a leading provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs) and electronic document imaging and management systems for healthcare professionals, today announced that Robert H. Lorsch, the Company's Chairman and CEO, will be a featured speaker at the Health Technology Investment Forum (www.ihealthtran.com) taking place today at the Westin New York at Times Square. Lorsch's presentation will outline the benefits for investors in the Electronic Health Records and Electronic Medical Records industries, of which the federal government has allocated over $42 billion for healthcare information technology (HCIT) over the next several years.

"MMRGlobal represents an opportunity for entrepreneurs with emerging growth companies in health information technology to attract the capital and visibility to maximize their prospects," Lorsch said. "From personal experience, I understand how difficult it is for people with good ideas to execute on them without proper infrastructure and resources. We will offer selected companies the tools to build out their products and sell into the ever-expanding government and consumer health information markets."

"Health IT represents an opportunity for investors to take advantage of the momentum created by the Obama Administration and the focus on reducing the cost of healthcare through computerized medical records. Our business plan includes a growth strategy of acquisitions to create a leadership position in this emerging marketplace," added Lorsch.

MMRGlobal is uniquely positioned as a market leader in Personal Health Records with the Company's MyMedicalRecords.com PHR (www.mmrvideos.com ). A recent Wall Street Journal study found that over $51 billion is available for investment by the end of 2011 from American private equity firms. Coupled with the fact that federal legislation mandates everyone in the U.S. to have an electronic health record by 2014, this offers investors and companies like MMRGlobal the ability to participate in the consolidation of a new industry.
