4medica Releases First Fully Integrated Patented Patient Portal for Laboratory Compliance With HHS Rules

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 -- 4medica, a leading provider of a cloud clinical integration platform and portal solution, has created the only laboratory personal health record (PHR) solution licensed under the MyMedicalRecords HIT patent portfolio, owned by MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF). The 4medica solution is the first fully integrated personal health record solution for laboratories and other healthcare organizations that meet the requirements of the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) amended Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act and final rules.

The latest Amendment to the original 1988 CLIA regulations allow laboratories to give a patient, or his or her "personal representative," access to the patient's completed test reports on the patient's or patient's personal representative's request. 4medica is the only company of its kind offering a fully integrated laboratory personal health record (PHR) and patient portal solution which includes rights to MyMedicalRecords U.S. Patents.

"Access to laboratory results is a mandatory step in HHS' ongoing effort to make patients informed partners with healthcare providers," noted Oleg Bess, M.D., 4medica's CEO. "4medica has always been ahead of the curve, and as a result, is the country's only licensed PHR that establishes a three-way clinical 'conversation' by creating a cost-effective way for labs to provide results, an efficient way for patients to access them, and an efficacious way for physicians to stay in the loop and provide the best patient counsel and support."

The 4medica PHR offers several new features, including:
1. Fully certified and compliant for Meaningful Use Stage 2.
2. Patient-centric record provided by 4medica Big Data EMPI.
3. Ability to view clinical data from multiple physician practices.
4. Secure physician-to-patient and lab-to-patient messaging.
5. Patient forms available to collect required information for labs or physician practices.
6. Audit trail to monitor patients' activities within the PHR.
7. Family-based enrollment that allows the entire family to be set up under a single, family account.
8. Scanning of existing paper medical records, import images, and other forms from other physicians, hospitals, and labs into the PHR.

"This new version of the 4medica PHR was designed specifically to help laboratories meet government regulations and meaningful use requirements by supporting secure lab sharing of HIPAA-sensitive, private patient data," said Dr. Bess. It also provides a multitude of useful features to assure patient's engagement and continued usage.

Additionally, all 4medica clients and their patients receive protection under MMR's million dollar Cyber Liability Insurance Program. This includes protection from actual loss or damage caused in defending a violation of the expanded HIPAA regulations under HITECH. The underlying Cyber Liability policy is underwritten by an A-rated insurance company by A.M. Best and coverage extends to MMRGlobal's corporate clients and partners.

A standalone solution, 4medica PHR can be used with 4medica's Lab4 -- the industry's only lab portal solution with fully integrated EHR and PHR modules -- or with solutions from other connectivity vendors.

4medica's Integrated Electronic Health Record (4medica iEHR®), the industry's leading cloud SaaS clinical integration platform, helps healthcare organizations of diverse types create a seamless view of the patient care experience and drive EHR adoption. 4medica connects over 100 institutional facilities including hospitals, health systems, physicians, laboratories and radiology and pathology clinics; more than 30,000 physicians use its products.
