Diversinet Signs a 3 year License & Revenue Share Agreement with AllOne Health Group, Inc.



    TORONTO, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Diversinet Corp. (OTCBB: DVNTF), a leading
provider of wireless data application and security infrastructure products and
services, today announced it has successfully signed a License and Revenue
Share Agreement with AHG Health Group, Inc. ("AHG"), a wholly owned subsidiary
of Hospital Service Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania to cross license
certain software and to share revenues from the secure mobile access to
personal health information.
    Under the three year agreement, Diversinet will receive U.S.$2 million
annually as a minimum commitment from AHG. Diversinet and AHG will be
initially focusing on Blue Cross Blue Shields Association member plans and
other customers in the mobile personal health record market in the United
States.
    Our combined solution targets a key area addressed in a report by the
Markel Foundation, "Information is the currency of modern health care. Knowing
an individual's family background, history of diagnoses, test results and
medications, and diet and exercise habits is essential to managing health,
assessing problems and preventing medical error."
    "The movement in the industry for personal health records (PHR) is
expanding dramatically" says Albert Wahbe, CEO and Chairman of Diversinet.
"The combining of AHG's domain knowledge of health care information with
Diversinet's mobile PHR technology for consumers will allow for the next
generation of PHR's to be securely available anywhere, at any time."
    "We are expecting to provide a positive outcome for our users and their
providers as well as reducing and streamlining overall healthcare costs" says
William C. Reed, President and CEO of AHG, "Secure portability of personal
health records at the time of care, the convenience and peace of mind in being
able to receive fast and secure coverage confirmation - all accessed securely
through a mobile device - makes this solution a trendsetting product that will
enable our users to take control of their health care in a cost effective
manner."

    
    The newly combined software system will also:

    -   Confirm eligibility and coverage at the time of service;

    -   Assist in reducing duplicate tests, medical errors and administrative
        costs;

    -   Offer accessible and manageable personal health information via a
        cell phone; and

    -   Display and transmit vital information to practitioners by email, SMS
        or facsimile.
