SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Sightseeing.com announced today that it has joined parent site Tours.com to offer MyMedicalRecords (OTCQB: MMRF), an easy-to-use Personal Health Record service which provides travelers secure online access to copies of their medical records and other important documents, such as passports, insurance policies, birth certificate and immunization records, anytime from anywhere in the world. Since 1995, Sightseeing.com has offered a destination website to the travel and tourism industry to market its Tours and Attractions for purchase. Sightseeing.com also publishes a newsletter twice monthly that features travel news and views. Travel Agents, Tour Operators and Meeting Planners can now include MyMedicalRecords as a "Value-Added Service" free for 30 days, from the day registered for every trip booked. Clients will have the option of renewing their own MyMedicalRecords account at a low annual flat fee after 30 days.
Just as travel insurance provides protection for travelers, timely access to medical records can help reduce health-related risks by ensuring medical information is available to individuals and their family at the right place and right time when they need it most. The MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record enables travelers to access and share their medical records from anywhere in the world instantly using an Internet-connected device. This is especially critical with the emergence of new global super viruses. Additionally, travelers receive an Emergency Health Record Card for themselves and their family members which contains a special Emergency Login for doctors and first responders to enable viewing of a patient's health information -- such as allergies, prescriptions, vaccinations and medical history -- in the event of a medical emergency. So even if a client gets sick halfway around the world, doctors can access potentially life-saving information when every second counts.
Based on its patented technologies, MyMedicalRecords, a wholly owned subsidiary of MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF),
provides a secure, private portal that gives clients the power to store medical records and other vital documents for up to ten family members -- including pets. (Pets can be our most important traveling companions and they can get sick on the road, too.) Each MyMedicalRecords account also includes special health management tools like a Drug Reference Tool that checks for interactions between more than 50,000 prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, as well as calendar reminder alerts so clients can keep on track with doctor appointments and prescription refills -- so important when they are getting ready to travel.
How the Travel Professional Program Works: When agents sign up for the Sightseeing.com travel agent partner program as an affiliate partner, they receive a special registration code to give to their clients. The registration code gives each client a free 30-day trial of the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (from the day they sign up). When they complete their trial period and are billed, the travel agent receives recurring commissions based on revenues for each year of service. A subscription to MMR costs $9.95 per month and commissions are paid each month. Travel professionals in the program also get a complimentary lifetime account that can be used for themselves and their family, giving them the opportunity to explore all the powerful features and benefits that make MyMedicalRecords a must-have for clients.
Best of all, the MyMedicalRecords Customer Care team is available to answer any questions and assist clients with enrollment no matter where they are. To enroll in the Travel Professional Program, please call 888-808-4667.
