Ron Brown, the current Director of business affairs for retired NFL players in southern California will lead a team to recruit athletes and celebrities to join the MMRPro Sports Team. MMRGlobal team members will be the ambassadors in a campaign to educate on the importance of having a personal health record today and will be making appearances at hospitals and other named locations. If you read at the Medical Quack often enough then you may have stumbled on to the 400 plus posts I have on PHRs that date back to the beginning days and it has progressed tremendously since that time. Below is one example of the special pages created where a message is given by a team member and their mission and message about PHRs.

For physicians there’s also the MMRPro product which allows for doctors to sign up and have the ability to securely communicate with patients and you both phone and text capabilities here.
MMRGlobal is a sponsor at the Medical Quack and you can always find the link to MyMedicalRecords at the top of the page. This is good thing as I see it as it sounds I have some good credible help out there besides just this blog on promoting the use and benefits of having a PHR <grin>. BD
