From reading the press release today this was a day in which both sides made their presentations relative to patent violations claimed by MMRGlobal, aka MyMedicalRecord.com. MMR Global has already settled with Walgreens and you can read at the link below about the new PHR in a box to be sold on Drugstore.com and I believe in retail stores.
Below are the back links relative to the patent settlements with both Walgreens and Cerner. Quest, Jardogs, Allscripts and WebMD (two divisions) are still being litigated and today’s court appearance was for just that, each side making their case.
It mentioned Bob Lorsch, CEO of MMRGlobal talking about his own use of their company PHR, which goes back a few months and I just happened to have covered back then at the link below. Nothing like having the CEO use his own products by all means. In addition, Lorsch also talked about being a cancer survivor in 2005 and that was his motivation to created the PHR, MyMedicalRecords.com. Some of the patent dates I know from what I have written before do go back to 2007 I know and perhaps even earlier, I’m not exactly sure.

Recently the website for MyMedicalRecords.com has been updated to accommodate recent changes and expansion as the PHR in a box program begins.
“The most recent NOA represents MMR's first Clinical Trials patent and includes 18 claims directed to methods and systems that provide for self-reporting being used to create Electronic Health Records for purposes including Clinical Trials. Additionally, MMR has received issued patents and has pending applications in 11 other countries or regional authorities of commercial interest including Australia, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, Israel, and Europe”
The case continues on August 19th before the judge unless of course all perhaps settle before that, but stay tuned. BD
