Many PHRs have worked with using an HL7 interface and now MyMedicalRecords adds this capability to their PHR. 4Medica on another note is one of the EHRs that has already signed a license agreement with MMR Global back in December of 2012 as I posted (link below) relative to the protected company patents, so it appears there’s no apparent issues to stop the exchange of any medical data and the company has worked with MMR to bring this interchange to light. 4Medica is the first to work with MMR, however the HL7 exchange format will be available to any medical records system that uses HL7 so that should be about all of them.

In addition, the system will also be able to push PDF documents to the EHR or EMR system as well. The professional product MMRPro is a document manager and an e-prescribing system that works with the PHR. Patients get a message when a new document is added for those who are not set up with a full medical records program. The Pro version is not needed to use the new HL7 interface. I included the video as there are some portions of interest with voice communications and secure patient/provider emails too. BD
4Medica Introduces Master Patient Index Engine Using Big Data Technologies and Algorithmic Processes In the Cloud
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKETWIRE) -- 03/25/13 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records ("PHRs"), MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today announced the launch of seamless connectivity between the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record and Electronic Medical Record ("EMR") systems in medical clinics starting April 15, 2013. The new features facilitate connectivity with any EMR or EHR system and also laboratory reporting systems.
Using an HL7 interface, MMR will be able to populate data, such as a Continuity of Care Document ("CCD"), directly to the patient as well as lab test results, medication lists and other discrete data which will be directly deposited into the MyMedicalRecords PHR. At the option of the patient, the system will also be able to push PDFs and other personally managed health information from the patient's confidentially maintained files directly into an EMR or EHR. The April 15th deployment is part of a joint development effort with a 4medica client using 4medica's Certified for Meaningful Use Integrated Electronic Health Record (4medica iEHR®); however, the system will be available to any EMR system.
This capability is made possible through MMR's patented online MyMedicalRecords PHR and extensive healthcare IT patent portfolio. The MyMedicalRecords integrated technology platform allows individuals and families the ability to store, retrieve and share documents, images and other forms of protected health information and vital documents using a variety of methods, including fax, phone and Internet among other protocols without relying on any specific Electronic Medical Record platform to originally populate a user's account.
