MobiSecure Wallet and Vault to Provide Secure Mobile Access to Personal Health Records

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 29, 2007) -

(Editors: See accompanying press release, "Diversinet's New MobiSecure Wallet and Vault Enable Anytime, Anywhere Delivery of Mobile Services.")

Diversinet Corp. (OTCBB:DVNTF), a leading provider of mobile authentication security and access solutions, today announced it has signed a licensing agreement with Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania (BCNEPA) for Diversinet's MobiSecure™ Wallet and Vault security products, also announced today. Based on Diversinet's MobiSecure soft token technology, the MobiSecure Wallet and Vault products will deliver the required HIPAA-compliant security to provide BCNEPA members an advanced new medical care service offering immediate, universal access to personal medical records by individuals and health care providers through their mobile phones, handheld wireless devices and personal computers.

Initially, Diversinet will deliver this solution for 100,000 users over the first half of 2007. The solution will eventually be offered to all BCNEPA members (approximately 600,000) in 13 counties in Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania.

"We are excited to offer the MobiSecure Health solution to our BCNEPA members and providers. The solution will make personal health records secure and available anytime, anywhere which supports our mission to make quality health care affordable," said Drew Palin M.D., chief development officer of BCNEPA. "Secure portability of medical 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 - make the MobiSecure Health solution a trendsetting product that will enable our members to take control of their health care information."

Palin anticipates health benefits for BCNEPA members through the immediate, universal access to medical records - as well as greater peace of mind - as secure, efficient, cost-effective health care puts the patient in control. The new system will also:

- Confirm eligibility and coverage at the time of service;

- Reduce 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.

"Diversinet continues to attract new customers by fulfilling market needs for secure mobile access solutions, and we are extremely pleased to have Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania recognize the value in our products," said Nagy Moustafa, CEO of Diversinet. "Diversinet will focus on other applications in health care and insurance, in addition to the financial services industry, where MobiSecure Wallet and Vault products have the potential to help facilitate new customer services and revenue streams."
