MyMedicalRecords to Amend Walgreens Complaint 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/01/13 --  MMRGlobal, Inc.
(OTCQB: MMRF), through its wholly owned subsidiary MyMedicalRecords,
Inc. (collectively, "MMR"), today announced that it will seek a
stipulation or order to file an amended complaint against Walgreens
Co. to include claims for infringement of its "Method for Providing a
User with a Service for Accessing and Collecting Prescriptions"
patent currently in the process of being issued under Notice of
Allowance application number 13/714,720 which the Company received on
June 19, 2013. The Prescription Management patent is directed toward
online access and management of prescriptions in retail pharmacies,
mass merchandisers, hospitals and others with pharmacies inside. The
patent covers how consumers, patients, physicians and other
healthcare professionals send prescriptions to the pharmacy, access
prescriptions from a pharmacy, schedule prescription refills, send
reminders regarding prescription refills including by text or email,
and identify adverse drug interactions by analyzing prescription
medications. Based on trends offering consumers the ability to manage
prescriptions online, the Company believes this patent to be
extremely relevant to its business of selling its products and
services and/or licensing its patented intellectual property to
healthcare professionals and others including retail pharmacies such
as:

The list also includes numerous other retailers offering similar

helping drive revenue to its Prepaid Personal Health Record card and
intellectual property pertaining to the use of prescription drug
treatment in clinical trials.  
MMRGlobal already has seven issued U.S. patents pertaining to health
information technologies, including U.S. Patent Nos. 8,301,466;
8,352,287; 8,352,288; 8,121,855; 8,117,646; 8,117,045; and 8,321,240,

involving inventions pertaining to Personal Health Records, Patient
Portals and other Electronic Health Record systems in twelve
additional countries including Australia, Singapore, New Zealand,
Mexico, Japan, Canada, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Israel, and
