MMRGlobal, Inc. a leading provider of Personal Health Records and electronic document management systems for healthcare professionals, and REACH Air Medical Services, LLC (REACH) today announced they have signed an agreement to offer MMR’s signature MyMedicalRecords PHR to all of REACH’s current and future clients and customers. MyMedicalRecords (www.mmrvideos.com) will be an adjunct to a membership program for groups and individuals that covers non-reimbursed charges for emergency air medical transport services by REACH.
REACH, founded in 1987, is a known leader and innovator in the air ambulance industry, having earned the prestigious Diamond Certified(R) award for achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction. The company has approximately 15,000 members in its REACH for Life membership program which will be offered the Personal Health Record service.
According to Brian Karr, CFO of REACH, “Air ambulance services need a service such as the MyMedialRecords Personal Health Record to maintain different sets of medical records for patients. Offering MyMedicalRecords makes it easier for doctors, flight nurses and paramedics to have up-to-date health information that is accessible in one place via a secure Emergency Portal and readily available to our 24/7 communications center.”
Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, said, “The importance of rapid response to critically ill or injured patients cannot be overstated. Those who follow the Company know the value of MyMedicalRecords to emergency preparedness and we have made this a cornerstone of our health IT products and services. Teaming with REACH enables us to serve a targeted group of customers with a product that can both help save lives and accelerate the recovery process.”
MyMedicalRecords makes it easy for patients to import medical records from all their doctors and maintain other important documents, such as insurance policies and powers-of-attorney, in one secure, central location. Built on proprietary, patented technologies, every MyMedicalRecords account includes a personal “Lifeline” telephone number that can be used by all of one’s doctors and healthcare providers to fax in medical records, which are then automatically viewable in the user’s password-protected online account. The Lifeline number can also be used for outbound faxing at no additional charge and for recording and storing voice messages. Users can also upload and download documents and medical images directly from their computer. Each MyMedicalRecords account covers a family of up to 10 members and is bilingual in English and Spanish.
