Kodak Signs Electronic Health Record Solutions Provider MMR Information Systems as Independent Software Vendor
Los Angeles/Rochester, NY (August 2009)—A new independent software vendor (ISV) agreement between Kodak and MyMedicalRecords, Inc. (MMR), a subsidiary of MMR Information Systems, Inc., will enhance how doctors provide electronic patient information online. KODAK Scanners and KODAK Capture Pro Software will work seamlessly with the MMRPro System and Personal Health Records (PHR) products. Together, these technologies help healthcare professionals lower the cost and increase the efficiency of digitally capturing and managing information from paper-based medical files.
Improved digital records management represents a top priority of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, signed into law by President Barack Obama in February. MMR assists healthcare professionals in search of effective electronic document management solutions. The MyMedicalRecords consumer-controlled multilingual Personal Health Record, available at www.mymedicalrecords.com, streamlines the process of sharing health information between doctors and their patients. To date, more than 500,000 users have access to MMR’s PHR product network.
Kodak’s document capture software and scanners couple performance and ease of use to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of processing high quality images from paper-based documents. These precision-driven document capture capabilities will allow healthcare professionals to upload and access patient information in real-time using MMR’s Web-based, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, including www.mymedicalrecordsmd.com, www.mmrpatientview.com and www.mymedicalrecords.com. This feature also enables doctors and patients to manage and access records securely from any Internet connection anytime from anywhere in the world.
“Utilizing Kodak product furthers our commitment to develop professional services that will improve the quality of patient care,” said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMR Information Systems, Inc. “Developed specifically for today’s changing healthcare demands, the features in our Professional and Patient directed PHR products are built on proprietary patent pending technologies and are designed to enable both physicians and their patients to more easily access and share medical records with significant emphasis on meaningful use.”
MMR’s portfolio of products is designed to help medical professionals and healthcare consumers securely control the use of patient health information. Customizable settings allow doctors and their staff to manage access permissions and handle changes via e-mail or telephone. MMR will also utilize Kodak’s document capture technology, including KODAK Capture Pro Software, to help streamline data capture from multiple providers. In addition, medical records can also be easily uploaded, faxed or dictated in MMR’s MyMedicalRecords Pro and MyMedicalRecords PHR products. Professionals and patients can easily view or print selected uploaded health information in the event of an emergency through MMR’s proprietary Emergency View.
