MMRGlobal Enters Into Agreement With Private Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management Group

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") (, a leading provider of Personal Health Records, MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management systems for consumers and healthcare professionals, today announced that it has signed a non-binding term sheet to enter into a definitive agreement with JERCS, Inc. a private healthcare revenue cycle management group, and an affiliate (jointly, "JER") to provide EMR-connected Document Management and Imaging Services, Personal Health Records ( and Revenue Cycle Management services support to JER clients. Signing of the definitive agreement is currently subject to a number of binding provisions to be discussed and agreed to by the parties and certain other contingencies, including but not limited to, further due diligence, certain financial and tax opinions, regulatory matters and approval of all parties' board of directors. Based on representations in the term sheet if completed, MMR believes that JER could represent more than 150 million dollars in revenues to MMR following the signing of the final definitive agreement.

The parties have already agreed to deploy the MMRPro® EMR-connected Document Management and Imaging Service ( with MMRPatientView ( to a minimum of 12 surgery centers and at least one 200-bed hospital based on the Company's standard terms and conditions for the purchase and licensing of MMRPro. The companies also plan on providing the ability for patients to have an option to upgrade their MMRPatientView account to a comprehensive MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record account. MMR also intends to offer automated billing, collection and revenue cycle management services of JER on terms to be agreed to between the parties.

Further details of the contemplated transactions are not being disclosed at this time; however, if the transactions are completed, MMRGlobal believes that it would be amongst a handful of combined Health Information Technology groups offering a collection of EMR-connected Document Management and Imaging Services, Personal Health Records and Revenue Cycle Management solutions. Companies with similar service offerings include athenahealth, Craneware and Accretive Health.

On August 30, 2011, just prior to the signing of the non-binding term sheet, Government Health IT reported how PHRs boosted shareholder value at EMC Corp. The article discusses how the use of Personal Health Records at software provider EMC increased productivity, lowered healthcare costs and increased the value of EMC's share price. The article stated, "The use of PHRs should increase based on recommendations for meaningful use stage 2, in which patients will be able to view and download their information to their computers or PHRs via patient portals and other methods." The article quotes Delia Vetter, EMC senior director of benefits and programs, in saying that EMC has contained costs by about $200 million over 10 years, and that it also increased EMC shareholder value.

According to Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "We believe that this transaction represents the opportunity for MMR products and services to be delivered to healthcare professionals through the business management side of healthcare. This term sheet comes within days of the first report that makes a definitive conclusion that the value and effectiveness from the use of PHRs can positively affect both an employee's health and a company's bottom line. We cited this report to demonstrate that the value of Personal Health Records to individuals and business is becoming indisputably clear."

MMRGlobal continues to hold proprietary software patents that it believes could also be of value to the contemplated transactions, if they occur. These include global patents for its Personal Health Records products, services and technologies and the Company's portfolio of biotech patents and other intellectual property.

The Company is also in the process of forming a separate operating subsidiary to maximize the value of its intellectual property, specifically its biotech assets which the Company believes may have significant commercial value. These assets include its Anti-CD20 antibody which the Company believes to be a first cousin to Rituximab. Rituximab is scheduled to go off patent in 2015 and currently represents over 6.6 billion dollars in annual sales.
