Source: Healthcare IT News

MMRGlobal, Inc. today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Chartis to offer its energy casualty clients a suite of secure, online products that will allow their employees to manage critical, sensitive information such as medical, financial and vital records. The Chartis insurers will offer this service as part of their Global Marine and Energy workers' compensation policies. The program will be offered to policyholders starting later this month at www.chartisinsurance.com/mmr.

Powered by MMRGlobal using its MyMedicalRecords technology, clients' employees and their families will be able to store and manage their medical records and personal health information, including lab reports, X-rays and scanned images, wellness tools and family health history, in a secure, encrypted Web-based application that can be accessed 24/7 from anywhere in the world using the Internet. The program will also allow for storage of other important documents, such as passports, deeds of trust and wills.

"At a time when the world is spending hundreds of billions of dollars on health information technology, I am proud that MMRGlobal is working with a company that is first to deploy personal health records in their industry," said Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal. "As part of the program launch, MMR produced a training video featuring MMRGlobal Advisory Board member, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who joins Tom Morelli, President of the Global Marine and Energy Casualty Division of Chartis, to demonstrate how to utilize MMR's proprietary personal health record products to employees and agents."

"As part of an ongoing commitment to support our clients, we will expand our offerings as their needs evolve. We are very excited to offer our energy business clients this new benefit," said Mr. Morelli.

In addition to a comprehensive file management system, each personal health record will feature a separate emergency log-in that will allow first responders and other medical personnel to access potentially life-saving information such as blood type, medications and allergies.
