Spotlight on mobiHealth Wallet

“Diversinet launched the mobiHealth Wallet because the healthcare industry works with fragmented healthcare data and patients are faced with suboptimal care coordination,” according to the company’s CEO, Dr. Hon Pak.  “Essentially, mobiHealth Wallet with Blue Button connectivity puts the patient in the driver’s seat in terms of managing and sharing information.” Diversinet unveiled mobiHealth Wallet at the mHealth Summit at Washington D.C area’s Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center December 3-5, 2012.  

An important feature of mobiHealth Wallet allows patients to use the Web or mobile devices to create and update unique health profiles, including preferences, lifestyle characteristics, and social determinants of health over time.

A patient can choose a primary language and preferred methods of communication with providers or caregivers, via voice calls, email, or text messages. Patient profiles along with data sent from interoperable mobile applications such as medication adherence and mood trackers, allow providers to understand a patient’s adherence and behavior patterns and to customize health interventions.

The company plans to market mobiHealth Wallet to application developers and to healthcare organizations, including providers, payers, population-health companies, and medical device makers. The company will further develop mobiHealth Wallet by expanding patient-generated preferences and social determinants of health. 

In October, Diversinet’s mHealth platform became the first to have its encryption technology awarded Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation. This is the only mobile health solution that can store, parse, and share Blue Button data on a mobile device with FIPS 140-2 certification.
