ADHC's Acquisition of Rebel Networks to Boost eHealth Market

American Diversified Holdings Corporation (ADHC), a publicly traded company headquartered in Del Mar, California, has acquired Rebel Networks, a provider of outsourced Internet infrastructure and related web solutions.

The acquisition is expected to give an added boost to the Mobile Health care market, which is being advocated strongly by the medical profession.

With ADHC developing applications for the smartphone and other mobile devices, mHealth is gaining popularity. The medical professionals can monitor patients, get feedback and adjust treatment, saving time for themselves and their patients.

Mississauga, Ontario-based cloud computing company Rebel Networks is also expected to help ADHC to gain new markets in eHealth, mobility and the area of HIPAA compliance.

Cloud computing will enable users to access web-based tools or applications through a web browser. This in turn will enable medical professionals to get access to patient information instantaneously through Electronic Health Records. ADHC is developing a unique software platform for the Mobile Health Care Market.

Rebel Networks, which deploys secure, scalable, high performance business solutions to customers ranging from small, emerging businesses to large, enterprise corporations will help ADHC to diversify and extend its health offerings in a convenient, simple and easy manner.

In a press release, Domenic Macchione, president and CEO of Rebel Networks, Inc., stated: "This is a major development for us as it will allow us to expand our current cloud platform to a broader scale, allow us to expand our cloud offerings at a more rapid pace, and make Rebel Networks a major player in the cloud computing space.”

Recent estimates by Merrill Lynch indicate that the cloud computing industry will generate over $160 billion in revenues by the end of 2011.
