If you read my post earlier this week, MyMedicalRecords is a brand new sponsor at the Medical Quack and this makes sense as there’s a lot of PHR information at this site. New press release out today on the expansion beyond the US with meeting with government officials and healthcare regulators in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. If you read the news Australia has launched their own PHR and was cited to be also looking for a bid to contract the administration of their system. The official press release is below and be sure to visit their MyMedicalRecords and you can always find the link at the top of any page at the Medical Quack. BD
LOS ANGELES, CA, Jul 26, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- MMRGlobal, Inc. MMRF -8.11% (MMR) today announced that the Company has been invited to participate in presentations with government officials, healthcare regulators and telephony providers in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore where MMR already holds issued patents for its Personal Health Records eHealth technology with additional claims pending and applied for. While in Australia, the Company plans on attending an Australian Interactive Media Industry Association (AIMIA) event taking place on September 25th.
During the AIMIA gathering, MMR plans on meeting with software and hardware manufacturers regarding the integration of its products and services into telemedicine systems and 4G devices as imbedded apps. The invitations followed last week's news release with the Company's Australian licensee VisiInc PLC to launch a unified Personal Health Record incorporating some of MMR's Australian patented health IT solutions.
According to Bob Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO, "MMRGlobal's visit through the Asia Pacific region will give us an opportunity to personally present our Personal Health Record products and services to government and private business and industry on a one-on-one basis and to explain the benefits of incorporating our patented MyMedicalRecords services into their eHealth plans for the future."
MMR also announced plans to establish a greater overseas presence in the UK headed up by Executive Vice President Richard M. Lagani. Mr. Lagani will manage the launch of several new Chartis/AIG International programs and oversee sales of the Company's MMRPro professional systems and PHRs to hospitals and other healthcare providers.
The Company has been expanding overseas over the past several years starting with the launch of its Unis Tonghe MMR International Health Management Service Co., Ltd., Joint Venture in China. This was followed by the signing of license agreements in Australia and currently the integration of its PHR services at St. Helen's Hospital in the United Kingdom.
