Diversinet Strengthens Military Healthcare IT Expertise With Two Executive Advisory Board Appointments

Dr. Hon Pak and Fred Hannett Named to Help Diversinet Build upon Success of MobiSecure Technology with U.S. Army's mCare Program

TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Diversinet Corp. (TSX Venture: DIV, OTCBB: DVNTF), a leader in "Connected and Protected" mobile healthcare communications, has appointed to its executive advisory board two experts in healthcare technology issues and applications related to the United States Department of Defense (DoD):
  • Dr. Hon Pak, previous President of the American Telemedicine Association and recently retired Chief Information Officer of the U.S. Army Medical Department, Office of the Surgeon General
  • Frederick J. Hannett, a Washington-based consultant and healthcare IT thought leader with longstanding ties to the DoD, as well as founder and Managing Principal of The Capitol Alliance

"Dr. Pak and Fred Hannett greatly strengthen our executive advisory board," said Diversinet Chairman and CEO Albert Wahbe. "Their outstanding accomplishments and extensive leadership experience in large-scale healthcare delivery systems bring us well-informed guidance and insight as we build upon our success with the U.S. Army's mCare program."

mCare is a telehealth outreach program established for members of the military recovering from mild traumatic brain injuries and other wounds. The program leverages a HIPAA-compliant mobile phone application based on Diversinet's MobiSecure ® technology, which enables daily two-way secure communication between patients and Army healthcare professionals.

Following an extensive pilot program, the Army engaged Diversinet under a five-year contract to support mCare's expansion. A mobile platform will be critical to enable patient-centered care in the military healthcare system, especially as the Army implements a patient-centered medical home model throughout the enterprise.

"Now that we've demonstrated the value of MobiSecure for the U.S. military," Wahbe said, "we will be seeking guidance from our new advisers to strategically expand our presence and market share in both the federal and commercial spaces."
