Orange and Morpho will unveil significant breakthrough for healthcare data mobility at Mobile World Congress
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
Orange (News - Alert), through its healthcare services subsidiary Almerys, and Morpho
(Safran group), a leader in identity management solutions and secure
credentials, have jointly created the world's first mobile identity
management system for the healthcare sector, extending existing health
The solution represents a significant breakthrough for healthcare data
mobility, enabling secure access to patient data anytime, anywhere and
on any device. A successful field trial is underway at Clermont Ferrand
University Hospital Center (CHU) in France. The solution will be
demonstrated on Feb. 25-28 at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona at GSMA
Connected City located in Hall 3, Stands 3B2 and 3C2.
This healthcare data mobility solution from Orange and Morpho enables
doctors to securely access patient files via a tablet or mobile device.
The easy-to-use system uses strong SIM authentication to establish a
link between the device's SIM card and the physician's unique
identification number via the identity management platform. Once the SIM
card is registered, an applet is directly loaded onto the mobile device
or tablet that contains the SIM card. The doctor can then access patient
files via a secure Web site by entering his phone number. A pop-up
message requesting the physician's unique identification number then
appears in order to complete the authentication process.
Commenting on the field trial, Casimir Boyer, director of Information
Systems for Clermont Ferrand University Hospital Center (CHU) in France,
said: "We have chosen the identity authentication solution developed by
Almerys, the Orange healthcare services entity, and Morpho because we
think that this solution combines security, simplicity and mobility. We
strongly need mobile access to our applications for the day-to-day
activity of our healthcare team and our partners for which the CHU
handles the results of biological analyses or other medical exams and
who need to have the results as soon as possible."
Morpho is providing the solution's identity management platform, which
is based on Morpho
Trusted Identity Services, a comprehensive solution for secure
online management of digital identities.
Maximilien Nguyen, Vice President Convergence (News - Alert) & Solutions, Morpho, said:
"We are convinced that the e-health sector is a very promising area,
where our technology in mobile identity services will bring real value
to all sensitive medical e-services. Our joint solution with Orange will
pave the way."
Orange provides the solution's robust, SIM-based authentication
functionality and is leading the integration of the entire solution.
Orange is also operating the service by monitoring it through a highly
secured platform and network.
"We are very pleased to be at the forefront of the technological
evolution of the healthcare sector, and we are confident that this
solution will open up significant opportunities in the area of mobility
and data security for healthcare professionals and their patients," said
Thierry Zylberberg, Director of Orange
