- In February 2013, Diversinet 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 applications. mobiPublisher Version 4.7 includes 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 easier for healthcare enterprises to improve mobile patient engagement and care coordination.
- During Q2 2013, two key mobile security patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office were granted. The patents expand Diversinet's intellectual property portfolio to 22 granted and 26 pending patents. U.S. patent No. 8,341,712, "Method and System for Authenticating a User of a Mobile Device," provides convenient new options for enabling multi-factor authentication. This technology enables patients to use their phones as part of multi-factor authentication for remote access to personal health information. This is in line with U.S. government standards proposed to take effect in 2015 with Stage 3 of the HITECH Act's meaningful use incentive program. Canadian patent No. 2,665,961, "Method and System for Delivering a Command to a Mobile Device," enables solutions that help enterprises ensure security and productivity amid the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, including the emerging mobile wallet, or container, architecture.
