MMRGlobal Signs Definitive Agreements With 13 Surgery Centers Potentially Representing Millions of Dollars in Recurring Revenue

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) (, a leading provider of Personal Health Records, MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management systems for healthcare professionals, today announced that it has signed the first set of definitive sales agreements with 13 individual surgery centers as a result of the Company's previously announced relationship with JERCS, Inc., a private healthcare revenue cycle management group (JER). The agreements are for the installation of MMRPro Document Management and Imaging Systems ( and represent the first phase of the relationship with the revenue management group. The relationship with JER also represents the first step of integrating MMR products and services into other JER clients and 1-800-GET-THIN. Delivery of approximately $400,000 of the installations will begin immediately and is estimated to be completed early in the fourth quarter.

On September 12, 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius asked the medical profession to cooperate in expanding the rights of patients to access their personal health record. In view of the recent emphasis by the government to make secure access to personal health information electronically available to patients, the Company believes that the surgery center agreements could represent more than $10 million in recurring revenues from providers and patients who request access to their personal health records over the three-year initial term of the agreements.

The Company expects to continue to recognize significant increases in sales and deferred revenues from the delivery of MMRPro and MMRPatientView and the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record built on proprietary patented technologies during the remainder of this year. The agreements with the 13 surgery centers are in addition to recent sales and installations in New Jersey, Texas and the Philippines during the current quarter, as well as ongoing sales efforts in Australia, China, Russia and France.

Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, said, "The Company anticipates signing additional definitive agreements with healthcare facilities as a result of the MMRGlobal-JER term sheet announced on September 7, which stated that when and if completed, JER could represent more than $150 million in revenue. MMR is laying the railroad tracks for a train to carry us on our mission to provide the future of healthcare today. This is just the beginning and the train has not yet left the station."

Last week, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius asked both medical providers and healthcare associations, employers and product developers to "Take the Pledge" to make it easier for individuals to have secure and timely access to their health information electronically and to engage and empower consumers through the use of health IT. Lorsch continued, "We believe that we have the best tools available for patients and their caregivers to safely and securely get their protected health information from any doctor and any hospital anywhere in the world today."
