  • Subsequent to Q2 2012 Diversinet appointed Bret Jorgensen as chairman of the board succeeding Albert Wahbe, who has retired as chairman but remains a member of the board. Jorgensen brings more than 20 years of experience as a healthcare entrepreneur and corporate transformation executive to Diversinet.

"Our second quarter growth was the result of our renewed focus on creating, on behalf of our clients, more effective patient engagement and care coordination using our MobiSecure® technology," said Dr. Pak. "The improvement in revenue reflects the strong leverage in our model and the value we've created in our intellectual property.

"With MobiSecure, we are able to address the increasing demand by healthcare organizations for patient-centered mobile solutions that improve quality of care, reduce costs and provide critical security in a mobile environment. No other mHealth platform offers the security and feature-richness of MobiSecure, including its ability to securely connect to back-end servers and allow two-way communications or analysis of personal health information. Security features embedded in our platform include data encryption at rest and in transit, as well as patented mobile software anti-cloning protection. Altogether, there is not a more robust solution for delivering this type of patient care on the market today.

"Increasingly major organizations that deliver healthcare are beginning to take notice of this, as evidenced by our growing marquee customer list that now includes Janssen, U.S. Army, MiHealth, University of Nebraska, and others. We anticipate our gathering momentum to continue as we complete the second half 2012."
