MMR Information Systems has been chosen by Chartis Inc., a global property-casualty and general insurance organization serving more than 40 million clients worldwide, to power a system allowing policyholders and their families to access, store, and manage their electronic personal health records and other important documents.

Through a strategic alliance with MMR, Chartis will initially offer health records to accident and health policyholders, but is expected to expand the offering to additional product lines in the coming months. The system will be based upon MMR’s MyMedicalRecordsTM technology, and allows records (initially available in 7 different languages) to be accessed and stored in a secure, encrypted, Web-based application, which users can tap 24/7 from anywhere in the world. In addition, the system will include a virtual MyESafe deposit box, for the storage of passports, deeds, wills, and other important documents.

The system will incorporate a sophisticated file management system, as well as a separate emergency log-in feature allowing first responders and other medical personnel to obtain potentially life-saving information, such as blood type, medications, and critical allergies.

MMR Chairman and CEO, Robert H. Lorsch, said, “It is especially exciting to work with Chartis to introduce this life-saving service at a time when the world is spending hundreds of billions of dollars on health information technologies.” The President of Chartis International Consumer Lines, Jeffrey kestenbaum, added, “Chartis is excited to be able to offer its clients the ability to manage their personal health records and other critical personal documents, and make them available around the clock and from anywhere in the world”.

MMR Information Systems, through MyMedicalRecords, Inc., the company’s wholly-owned operating subsidiary, provides secure and easy-to-use online personal health records and electronic safe deposit box storage solutions, allowing individuals and families to maintain and access all their medical records and other important documents from anywhere in the world using the internet.
