LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 15, 2012) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that usage of the Company's MMRPro document management and imaging systems processed nearly 3 million pages of medical records from an estimated 100,000 patients including more than 500,000 EOB forms for use with medical billing and collection services. MMRPro also makes medical records available to patients using the system's integrated patient portal, MMRPatientView, and the joint MMR-Interbit Data solution certified for meaningful use with MEDITECH EMR systems. Over the past five months, the Company continued to see usage grow at more than 12% over last year.
According to Bob Lorsch, MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO, "Opportunities with MMRPro seem to be opening up. Originally designed for small physician practices, we find growth coming from other areas such as surgery centers, compliance departments and in support of billing and collections. The increase in document imaging should continue to track to rising implementation of Electronic Medical Records systems which require digitizing paper-based patient charts for use with EMR and EHR systems."
Separately, the Company also reported that it sees measurable increases in video tours of its MyMedicalrecords.com Personal Health Record, MyEsafeDepositbox.com online storage system and other MMR websites all of which can be viewed at www.mmrtheater.com. Continued Lorsch, "Increasing numbers of consumers are beginning to see the importance and cost saving benefits of having a PHR (http://coosaw.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/medical/). Based on comments from users, we believe that we offer the most user-friendly interface to all of a family's healthcare providers, including veterinarians for the family's pets."
The Company has also been running a Facebook advertising campaign that has already delivered 18 million impressions since the first of June. The campaign uses targeted messages which drive people to both disease-specific and family wellness pages such as https://www.mymedicalrecords.com/diabetes and https://www.mymedicalrecords.com/family.
