LOS ANGELES, CA and SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - April 10, 2012) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (
MMR has been translating and coding its Personal Health Record technology for use in the Chinese hospitals since Unisoft Group Vice President and Chairman Luo Jianhui and MMRGlobal CEO Bob Lorsch met at the HIMSS Conference in Las Vegas earlier this year. As a result of this new collaboration with ALU, MMR is now working with Unis-Tonghe as its joint venture partner and Alcatel-Lucent who is providing MMR with strategic support in China.
Since Alcatel-Lucent's Chinese flagship company is Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell Co., Ltd., and MMR's platform uses a telecommunications infrastructure, the relationship is expected to speed the launch of the Company's Personal Health Record products and services throughout China.
