Spalding Surgical Center Going Paperless With MMRPro

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 15, 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 Spalding Surgical Center of Beverly Hills, a leading Southern California outpatient general surgery center, is achieving its goal of becoming paperless using MMRPro. The Company's document management and imaging system is designed for hospitals, doctors' offices and other healthcare facilities to reduce costs, improve efficiency and make it easier for physicians and patients to track results and wellness progress electronically.

"MMRPro is proving that the rising costs of healthcare can be mitigated through the use of health IT without changing the ways that doctors do business," said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal. "With digitization here and the days of pen and paper numbered, MMRPro gives doctors the ability to convert to computerized records without significantly changing the look and feel of the way the practice runs."

John R. Seitz, Co-founder, Chairman & CEO of Ambulatory Surgical Group, said, "Using MMRPro has significantly improved the workings of Spalding's office and staff. We are able to process information much faster than before, and we are using the system to scan an average of 1,200 pages daily, which effortlessly stores patient records online, saving time and money."

Spalding Surgical Center of Beverly Hills has also chosen MMRPro to manage their standard form database, increasing employee productivity and allowing the staff to shift their focus to patient care and not endless copying and printing. "MMRPro has given Spalding Surgical Center of Beverly Hills the confidence to convert to a completely paperless office very shortly," Seitz continued.

MMR will be at the HIMSS Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas next week, February 20-24, to showcase its suite of health IT products including demonstrating how the MMRPro system can transition doctors, hospitals and other healthcare professionals to a paperless office as it is doing with Spalding Surgical Center of Beverly Hills with or without a full-featured EMR. HIMSS will also be MMR's Phase 2 launch of its MMR Stimulus Program, which enables hospitals using selected EMR systems to integrate the MMRPatientView patient portal as a standalone module and still participate in the MMR Stimulus Program, which can generate hundreds of thousands of dollars each year as patients upgrade to a full-featured MyMedicalRecords PHR.
