Information to Improve Care and Outcomes

"Powers Care Coordination through Mobility," has enhanced its mobiPublisher™ application platform with its Version 4.7 release. The platform
provides a unified framework for developing and managing secure,
enterprise-wide mobile healthcare apps.
mobiPublisher Version 4.7 includes major new features that healthcare
organizations, health information exchanges, payers and large employers
have requested. These features facilitate secure collection,
integration, sharing and analysis of patient profiles, preferences,
care plans, and biometric and other data. The enhancements make it

and care coordination. These improvements result in better care and
outcomes while reducing costs.
The new features follow significant product upgrades in October, and
support Diversinet's mobiHealthWallet™, a secure, personalized virtual container for managing, sharing and
providing analysis of longitudinal personal health information. Along
with measuring patient adherence, mobiHealthWallet supports
preference-sensitive patient engagement, as well as meaningful use.
Compatible with all major smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices,
mobiPublisher is the first mHealth platform to meet stringent FIPS 140-2 standards, which exceed HIPAA requirements. mobiPublisher facilitates integration
with back-end, cloud-based and clinical systems while enabling easy,
real-time updates to accommodate changing mobile environments.

industry can begin standardizing mHealth platforms to harmonize and
manage various kinds of data," said Diversinet CEO Dr. Hon Pak.

physician determine whether there are complications. This feature also
could enable interactive communities of consumers with the same
condition to share tips and support, with the privacy of military-grade
- Data export for reporting and analytics. Diversinet customersnow can export biometric, patient-reported and other device-generated
data in common formats, such as CSV and XML, making it easier to
analyze care and outcomes for individuals and groups of patients.
- Streamlined questionnaire creation and deployment. A new wizard enables non-technical staff to quickly and easily design,
test and publish mobile patient questionnaires. This feature
facilitates collection of diverse patient-reported information
regarding such variables as moods and sleep patterns, as well as
medication and care-plan adherence. This information can be used to
provide valuable insights into patient behavior and conditions.
- An expanded SDK for building customization and interoperable apps with
mobiHealth Wallet. The updated SDK supports all major functions, including provisioning,
secure storage and data synchronization. These capabilities minimize
the lead time and skills required for Diversinet customers to develop
