MMRGlobal to Distribute 500,000 Prepaid Personal Health Record Cards in 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 27, 2012) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs) and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced that as a result of overwhelming reaction to the Company's prepaid PHR card by retailers, hospitals administrators, physicians, home care agencies, assisted living facilities, home health suppliers, supermarkets and Chief Technology Officers of EMR providers, MMR plans on manufacturing and distributing more than 500,000 cards in 2012 at a suggested retail price of $99.95 for the first year.

MMR also successfully launched four new products and services at the HIMSS Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas last week. These include presentations of certified EMR systems developed by UST Global and demonstrations of new software developed with Interbit Data that will allow hospitals and other clinical facilities to use a Meaningful Use certified solution with MEDITECH's Electronic Medical Record to instantly make health information available to patients securely over the Internet using the MMRPatientView portal. The Company also showcased its patented signature MyMedicalRecords Prepaid Personal Health Record card on its new apps for handheld devices and tablets. To protect its intellectual property values, MMR filed patents covering the prepaid card application, the handheld app and the Interbit Data MEDITECH application as part of the Company's health IT patent portfolio well in advance of introducing them at the show.

According to Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, "The MyMedicalRecords prepaid PHR card helps consumers easily understand what a Personal Health Record is as a service that has value for the entire family. Prior to introducing the PHR card, consumers did not have a familiar basis for understanding the importance of having a Personal Health Record and how it can help reduce medical costs and save lives. As a result of our launch to retail, which started at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and continued to healthcare professionals at the HIMSS conference last week, the Company believes it will sign contracts for more than 500,000 cards to be delivered this year, and that is just the beginning. MMR plans on distributing its branded, personalized prepaid PHR cards everywhere that healthcare products and services are sold including pharmacies, hospital gift shops, health supply stores and mass merchandisers throughout the U.S."

MMR's booth at HIMSS last week shared by UST Global was constantly busy as visitors lined up to take thousands of samples of the Prepaid Personal Health Record card which were available for trial. Based on reaction at the booth (, the Company believes these cards should help ensure MMR's future as the largest pure play Personal Health Record product in the world. The Company also made presentations to more than one hundred EMR vendors and hospitals demonstrating the Company's new app for Android phones, while participating in hands-on demonstrations of the MMRPro document management and imaging systems and the MyMedicalRecords PHR.

Also in the United States for meetings at HIMSS in MMR's booth were its international strategic partners from Australia, Jacques Blandin, Chairman and Founder of VisiInc, PLC, and from China, Luo Jianhui, Vice President and Chairman of Unisoft Group, Unis-Tonghe Technology (Zhengzhou) Co., Ltd. Alcatel-Lucent, a majority owner of Shanghai Bell, is also supporting MMR with the Company's Unis-Tonghe relationship in China.
