Diversinet Clinical Communicator Enables Secure, Mobile Communications between Healthcare Professionals and Patients

HIPAA-Compliant Application on MobiSecure® Platform
Increases Clinician Productivity, Improves Patient Outcomes

TORONTO, March 22, 2011 – Healthcare professionals now have a solution for securely and remotely communicating with patients via mobile devices and tablets, thanks to the Clinical Communicator application announced today by Diversinet Corp. (TSX Venture: DIV, OTCBB: DVNTF).

Clinical Communicator leverages the power and unique functionality of Diversinet’s field-proven MobiSecure® Publisher and MobiSecure SMS, enabling physicians, nurses and other clinicians to communicate securely with their patients via mobile devices and tablets. The mobile client and Web interfaces for healthcare professionals are automated and user-friendly. Patients can continue to use existing MobiSecure mobile clients, such as mClient and mText.

Clinical Communicator is a HIPAA-compliant application that makes it possible for clinicians to securely:

  • Send messages and notices to patients
  • Reply to patients’ questions
  • View and update patient health information
  • Schedule, view, confirm and cancel appointments
  • Send notices to other internal clinicians
  • Send summaries of lab and test results
  • Enable secure remote monitoring via interface with third-party biomedical devices
  • Enable real-time video calling
  • Configure automatic reminders and alerts

Benefits for patients include ability to use smart phones and tablets to ask questions and reply to clinicians; receive automated medication reminders, health tips and alerts; manage their personal health information; view and share health insurance information; schedule appointments; check in; and request prescription renewal.

“Healthcare organizations often rely on fragmented and disparate systems with information that resides in silos, making secure collaboration and communication difficult,” said Diversinet CEO Albert Wahbe. “The Clinical Communicator gives time-challenged health professionals a tool to deliver the right information at the right time, making it faster and easier to communicate with patients and collaborate across the healthcare ecosystem.”

Clinical Communicator will be available for trials in June. Diversinet will market the application through partnerships with large healthcare organizations, including providers and pharmaceutical companies. Clinical Communicator is also suitable for drug and clinical trials and for case and disease management. It is designed to help healthcare organizations fulfill Meaningful Use (MU) requirements.

Diversinet will demonstrate Clinical Communicator in Booth 4191 in the Wireless Health Pavilion at the CTIA Wireless convention at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., from March 22-24.
