MMRGlobal Files Patent Application for Practice Management System Integration Applet
Wednesday, September 29, 2010
Los Angeles, CA -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) (www.mmrglobal.com) announced today it has filed a patent application for an open integration tool by which patient data from any practice management system can be seamlessly uploaded into the Company's MMRPro system (www.mmrprovideos.com) or other electronic records systems. Called the Practice Management System Integration Application (PMSIA), the tool is being designed for administrators in physician offices, hospitals and alternative care sites to facilitate the efficient population of patient information from a healthcare provider's practice management system into the MMRPro Web-based application. Once patient data is transferred to MMRPro, that patient's records can be scanned and deposited into an MMRPro virtual patient chart where it can be retrieved over any Internet-connected computer on demand.
The Company believes that one of the biggest challenges physician offices face is moving patient data from their practice management system to an electronic medical records (EMR) system effortlessly. The new integration tool is designed to make it easier for any healthcare professional to convert their office to a new EMR-type system quickly and securely.
Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, said, "This universal tool represents a way that can help accelerate the growth of health information technology while allowing a faster, more efficient integration of MMRPro into any healthcare professional's office."
MMRGlobal's integration tool will work with any file format, including .csv, .txt, flat file or HL7, and extract data from any open data connectivity (ODBC) compliant data source.
"The flexibility offered by the integration tool also makes it a universal solution for transferring data from practice management systems to most electronic medical records systems, opening the door for MMRGlobal to position its products as a patient portal to competitive EHR systems and potentially creating opportunities for incremental licensing revenue," Lorsch added.
The applet is expected to be delivered with MMRPro implementations during the fourth quarter. For additional information about the Company and its products and services, visit www.mmrglobal.com and follow Bob Lorsch's blog at http://blog.mymedicalrecordsinc.com/.
