MMRGlobal Stimulus Program Available to All Health Care Professionals Including Surgery and Weight Loss Centers

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") a provider of Personal Health Records (PHR) through its portal and electronic document management systems for health care professionals (, today announced a nationwide program offering health care practices the opportunity to participate in the MMR Stimulus Program by distributing specially branded brochures to patients at no cost to the practice. A sample of the brochure can be seen at

The program enables health care professionals to generate unlimited MMR stimulus money, which can easily be many times greater than programs offered by the government that go up to $44,000 over a five-year period of time ( Any health care professional, including dentists, veterinarians and homeopathic specialists, can offer their patients a 30-day free trial of the premier Personal Health Record ( If the patient upgrades to the full-featured account, the doctor receives 25% of the monthly subscriber fees in the first year and ongoing residuals for as long as the account is maintained. Payments are designed to reimburse the costs of helping health care professionals set up and update a patient's PHR, reducing the cost of communicating with patients.

Residuals are designed to cover the costs of helping the patients set up and maintain their PHRs, reducing the cost of communicating with patients.

The program enables doctors to begin the process of easing their way into the electronic health records mandate at no cost while providing Personal Health Records to all patients well in advance of the 2014 target.

According to Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "Offering a Personal Health Record program that involves no cost to the health care professional demonstrates a commitment to responsibility and a special concern for patient safety and care. In the same manner that a dentist offers a toothbrush, or a pediatrician a lollipop, it is rewarding to encourage patients to participate in their safety and care, as well as potential cost savings, by setting up a PHR."

The Company plans on announcing a major test program with inbound call centers that do patient referrals to surgery centers and physicians and upsells to weight loss product and services companies.
