Being in the right place at the right time is what MMRGlobal is getting known for.
A new survey of venture capitalists by Dow Jones VentureSource says that VC’s see an increase in Health IT Investment this year. More than 330 U.S. venture capitalists and 180 CEOs of U.S.-based venture-backed companies were surveyed. Among the reasons is increased federal pressure on hospitals and doctors’ offices to meet Meaningful Use standards for electronic health records.
We anticipated this over two years ago when we completed the reverse merger with Favrille. Under the 2009 federal stimulus package, the U.S. government will spend as much as $27.4 billion between 2011 and 2021 to encourage health professionals and hospitals to make their health records electronic.
The process of implementing electronic medical records (EMR) involves a lot of moving parts. Physicians and Hospitals must find the right software vendors, work with that vendor to customize the EHR system to the facility’s needs, and ensure that the software interacts with hardware and existing programs currently being used such as practice management systems.
MyMedicalRecords, the company’s PHR and MMRPro, our document management and imaging system for health care professionals are the only Personal Health Records that can “talk” to any other EMR type system currently in use.
That makes us technology-agnostic and attractive to physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers. MMR Pro will allow physicians to begin meeting meaningful use requirements and participate in a Stimulus Program that can place hundreds of thousands of dollars in physicians’ hands.
To assemble a truly comprehensive information and transactional healthcare platform, you need time, vision, money and management to get there, not a small task if you are creating a comprehensive healthcare platform. To see ours visit www.mmrmdvideos.com .
