Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO, Named Head Concierge

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2011) -  MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) today announced that Chairman and CEO Robert H. Lorsch added two more words to his title of Chairman and CEO. They are "Head Concierge." The purpose of the change in title is to underscore the Company's commitment to support concierge medicine. Concierge medicine is proving to represent the future of healthcare in many communities, particularly when it comes to the survival of the small family group practice. The Company has launched an educational effort and a campaign to expand the use of its Internet-based MMRPro product and service to play a more important role in enhanced patient communication, a necessary tool to any successful concierge medical program. This will be on display at the 2011 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition February 20-24 in Orlando, Fl.

The Company already incorporates an integrated universal patient portal into its MMRPro proprietary, patented end-to-end document management and imaging solution for healthcare professionals. The system is invaluable in ensuring real-time connectivity with patients.  MMR also offers The MMRPro Stimulus Program, which can easily cover the costs of an MMRPro system. In addition, physician groups of two doctors or more can generate more than $50,000 in stimulus per year, every year, by the end of the product's three-year license agreement. And that amount can continue to grow year-over-year.

"We came to HIMSS this year to make the point that we care about physicians and the future of healthcare," said Lorsch. "We recognize that doctors are being squeezed by declining reimbursements, increased regulations and government intervention, skyrocketing malpractice rates and higher operating costs. As a result, many are exploring charging patients concierge medicine fees to offset the high cost of delivering the services they went to medical school to deliver. When was the last time a doctor came by your house at eight in the evening to check on you? By enabling a physician to take fewer patients and spend more quality time with them, concierge medicine appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel."

Setting the stage for concierge medicine at HIMSS, MMR's booth #3937 will be transformed into a true hospitality suite for demonstrations of MMRPro along with the Company's patient-centric MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record. Attendees will be made to feel like they have stepped into a hotel lobby complete with a complimentary copy of "MMRGlobal Today." MMR will also showcase the latest in document imaging technology with senior executives of Kodak, including the newest version of the proprietary MMRPro system which is being built by Kodak for MMRGlobal.

Attendees leaving their name at the MyMedicalRecords booth can participate in daily drawings to win a Kodak camera with a Grand Prize drawing for two tickets to attend this year's Daytime Emmy® Awards courtesy of Executive Producers David McKenzie of Associated Television International and Bob Lorsch. The Awards are planned for late June and will be televised live from Las Vegas on the CBS Television Network. In addition to the show tickets, the Grand Prize winner will receive round-trip airfare to Las Vegas from any U.S. city, hotel accommodations, and access to the Celebrity VIP After-Party.
