Validian's Next Generation Cyber Security Technology To Secure Prevently's MHealth And EHealth Services

Stocks in this article: VLDI

OTTAWA, Nov. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Validian Corp. (OTCQB:VLDI), first-to-market with next generation cyber security technology that provides secure access, transfer and storage of digital information on wired, wireless and mobile networks over the Internet, is pleased to announce that it has entered into collaboration with Prevently, Inc. for the security of its online digital health platform and mHealth solutions to be fully launched in Q1 2014.

Prevently's online health platform helps people live a healthy lifestyle through five main components. The first is educational health content in the form of short articles and videos. Prevently licenses a portion of this consumer health content from Harvard Medical School. The second component is an ecommerce portal that enables users to purchase healthy food, wearable fitness devices, and other health products. The third is a HIPAA compliant telemedicine portal that enables users to book video consultations with wellness coaches. The fourth is a personal health record that contains data from wearable fitness devices, blood test results, genetic test results, and the patient's mobile-based food diary. The personal health record sends notifications to the patient's wellness coach if unhealthy behavior is detected such as lack of exercise or poor sleep quality. The goal is to prevent and treat chronic disease via an online platform and mobile health app. The last component is a social networking portal that allows users to work towards health goals with other users.

Bruce Benn, Chief Executive Officer of Validian Corporation, commented, "Prevently is on the cutting edge of, and an early market leader in, the provision of telemedicine care and services, which is the next huge market for the mHealth sector. Prevently's content licensing partnership with Harvard Medical School provides them with tremendous credibility as well as greatly increases their potential to attract a significant number of users, which Validian regards as end points. Validian's first-to-market cyber security enhances Prevently's offerings by securing access to and transfers of: personal confidential information including health records, social security numbers, and credit card information; ecommerce purchases and online payments; social networking access and communications; and online health content."
