Deal Lets Health Systems Enhance Care Coordination, Achieve High Levels
TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Diversinet Corp. (TSX Venture: DIV, OTCQB: DVNTF), a leader in secure mobile health that
"Powers Care Coordination through Mobility," today announced it has
signed a licensing agreement with AirStrip Technologies, Inc., for the use of its patented mobiSecure® SDK to power ultra-secure messaging in AirStrip's industry leading mHealth
The newly formalized agreement enables AirStrip customers in the
military, government and commercial sectors to comply with rigorous
federal security requirements. Diversinet's encryption technology
recently was validated under Federal Information Processing Standards
The mobiSecure SDK makes it easy for healthcare organizations to develop
HIPAA-compliant solutions with military-grade security for all consumer
smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. In addition to the FIPS
140-2 validation, recent enhancements to the SDK improve the speed of
deployment for enterprise-wide mobile health solutions.
Further, by providing a highly secure data container for sensitive
patient medical information, mobiSecure accommodates the "Bring Your
Own Device" (BYOD) trend, in which individuals use their own personal
devices to communicate Personal Health Information (PHI) with either
patients or physicians.
"AirStrip set the standard in the industry by being the first to receive
FDA clearance for its device-agnostic mobile patient monitoring
applications. We are again blazing a trail by being the first to
deliver ultra-secure protections as part of our enterprise-wide
solutions," noted AirStrip CEO Alan Portela. "The FIPS 140-2
validation signals to our customers that we will continue to meet
increasingly stringent government and industry requirements to protect
the storage and transmission of sensitive healthcare data - safely
connecting patients and physicians across the care continuum."
Diversinet CEO Dr. Hon Pak said: "We couldn't be more pleased to have
formalized our relationship with AirStrip through this agreement. We
look forward to working closely with the AirStrip team to explore
expansion of our relationship."
