I am often asked why I do things the way I do. I think the answer is Natural Knowing. By any standards I am a self-made person who has seen a modicum of success in my life. I have made money and have caused tens of millions to be given to charity. However, I think the measurement is how I use my “Natural Knowing.”
For those of you who follow MMRGlobal, it’s no secret that the last five years of my life have been as challenging as any. Yet every day, I get up and put one foot in front of the other, never quitting and “Naturally Knowing” that having a Personal Health Record will soon be as common as having a credit report or a credit card.
That is why I believe in what we are doing at MMRGlobal. Every day brings new adventures and the beginning of many journeys. Some take much longer than we ever thought they would, but so far this company hits consistent singles and ultimately reaches home plate at least once in every inning.
People who know me personally know me know that I am a fighter. And when the going gets tough, I get tougher. Since Memorial Day (or in less than two weeks), this company has made two major announcements, the essence of which has gone unnoticed.
First, we had a very successful MUSE convention in Nashville. We participated in a joint dinner with three Strategic Partners, including Alcatel-Lucent. As we said earlier, we are getting close to announcing the first hospital to launch MMRPatientView and the MMR Stimulus Program (both part of MMRPro) in Interbit Data customer hospitals.
We announced a Joint Venture Agreement with VisiInc in Australia. We believe this agreement can also represent the first step into Russia. What many people do not understand is that the Australian government is fast tracking Personal Health Records at an unprecedented rate. Remarkably, MMRGlobal owns a significant number of the underlying patents already issued in Australia and other Pacific Rim countries. As it stands, these patents are necessary to comply with the government’s agenda. This intellectual property could easily make MMR a dominant player in the eHealth industry throughout the Pacific Rim. Australia alone is expected to do as much as $2.6 billion US in eHealth in 2012.
Additionally, the Vistime platform will give MMR the ability to deliver a real-time 3D viewer for retrieval viewing of large files, including medical imaging systems such as MRIs, scans and sonograms, over any Internet connection, including dial-up. I cannot even imagine what that can mean to the power of an MMR Personal Health Record.
This partnership, along with Chartis and China, continues to enlarge our footprint around the world, opening new territories and exposing our Personal Health Record products to millions worldwide.
Two days ago, we announced that we have identified an effort by a small group engaged in what we believe to be aggressive and perhaps illegal shorting of our stock, thereby lining their pockets at the expense of our long-time shareholders. We have implemented efforts to bring this to the attention of the regulators and hope that by shining a spotlight on their actions, these parties will go away to make havoc on a less aggressive management team. In any event, we never stop focusing on revenue and building our business with our strategic partners, including Kodak.
If your Natural Knowing told you that MMR was the place to be this summer, you probably sense fireworks on the 4th of July.
