LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 24, 2014) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (
MyMedicalRecords, Inc. will continue to pursue opportunities to monetize its 13 U.S. patents with more than 300 existing claims where appropriate in the burgeoning health information technology marketplace. In the meantime, MMR continues to offer its products and services to enter into license agreements with healthcare professionals including pharmacy chain retailers.
MyMedicalRecords, Inc. also received an order regarding a portion of a September 3, 2014 Claim Construction ruling which construed the term "means for scheduling prescription refills" found in three claims of its 8,498,883 patent ("the '883 patent") to be indefinite. There are a total of 28 claims in the '883 patent, a number of which MMR believes are not affected by the Court's Order. The Company and its patent attorneys remain confident in their positions as to all of MMR's claims, and plans on appealing the Court's decisions to address the validity of the patents at the appellate level sooner than later.
