Diversinet Introduces MobiHealth Wallet With New Patient-Centered Health Information

Stocks in this article: DVNTF

Showcasing Integrated Blue Button Data in a Personalized Virtual Wallet at mHealth Summit

TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Diversinet Corp. (TSX Venture: DIV, OTCQB: DVNTF), a leader in secure mobile health that "Powers Care Coordination through Mobility," today announced mobiHealth Wallet™, a secure, personalized virtual container for downloading, entering, managing and sharing personal health information.

The mobiHealth Wallet is compatible with the U.S. federal government's Blue Button Initiative and supports more effective healthcare coordination, personalization and mass customization of care. With the mobiHealth Wallet and the ability to configure or build a set of unlimited interoperable mHealth applications, the industry now has an effective mobile solution for provider-patient engagement.

The company is showcasing its mobiHealth Wallet at the fourth annual mHealth Summit, being held today through Dec. 5 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md., near Washington, D.C. Diversinet is demonstrating mobiHealth Wallet with Blue Button capabilities in Booth # 716.

"Mobile healthcare is evolving and bringing forth innovation at an unprecedented pace," said Diversinet CEO Dr. Hon Pak. "However, most mobile solutions offered today will not be sustainable or effective without a common framework for interoperability and patient- or consumer-centered engagement. mobiHealth Wallet makes it easy for patients to download and manage their data from various sources and to enter profile and survey information to be shared with providers and other caregivers."

An important feature of mobiHealth Wallet is that it allows patients to use the Web or mobile devices to create and update unique health profiles, including preferences, lifestyle characteristics and social determinants of health over time. A patient can choose a primary language and preferred methods of communication with providers or caregivers, including voice calls, e-mail or text messages. Patient profiles, along with data sent from interoperable mobile applications - such as medication adherence and mood trackers - allow providers to understand a patient's adherence and behavior patterns and to customize health interventions. For example, providers can match services to attributes and to behavioral and psychosocial characteristics, such as exercise, sleep and dietary habits.
