4medica deploys MMRGlobal's PHR system to create communications gateway
Sep 04, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
MMRGlobal, Inc., has announced that 4medica will incorporate MMR's patented MMRPro and MyMedicalRecords systems into its Integrated Electronic Health Record, or 4medica iEHR, to create Communications Gateway, an EHR platform for HIPAA-compliant inbound/outbound faxing.
4medica provides the cloud clinical integration platform and solutions. MMRGlobal is a provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs) and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals.
The new solution enables 4medica clients, including labs, physician practices and individual practitioners, to receive encrypted faxes directly into their 4medica iEHRs, and to fax directly from the application domestically or internationally, using existing fax numbers or new dedicated lifeline numbers for each physician in the practice. The system maintains inbound and outbound fax notifications, and captures an audit trail for all activity, which it updates in a daily report.
In addition, Communications Gateway will use MMR's patented document management and imaging solution to facilitate electronic consultations for both inbound and outbound referral letters. 4medica will pay monthly minimum usage and patent licensing fees based on the size of the Gateway plus a 20% royalty on revenues generated from healthcare providers.
4medica's iEHR enables hospitals, physicians, labs and health information exchanges (HIEs) to aggregate laboratory, imaging, pathology, e-prescribing and inpatient data from multiple sources into a single patient-centric record. MMR's patented technologies securely transmit, store and share health data. MMR's software employs a scalable modular architecture that allows for accelerated expansion and customizable applications and makes it simple to create and deploy telephony applications, services and open source solutions.
"This is a significant milestone for MMRGlobal, as 4medica is the nation's leading provider of cloud-based clinical data exchange services that provide physicians with a real-time view of patient information across multiple locations," said Robert Lorsch, MMRGlobal CEO. "4medica provides services to more than 35,000 physicians and projects as many as one-third of its base will use the new integrated fax service powered by MMRGlobal. We have been working to incorporate similar features and benefits of MMRPro and the MyMedicalRecords PHR into Electronic Health Record systems, and our integration with 4medica is the first major step in demonstrating the value of adding our patented technologies to any SaaS service or EMR solution."
