Orange and Morpho to unveil breakthrough for healthcare data mobility at Mobile World Congress


Orange, through its healthcare services subsidiary Almerys, and Morpho (Safran), world leader in identity management solutions and secure documents, have jointly created the world’s first mobile identity management system for the healthcare sector, extending existing health card solutions. 

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 from Feb. 25-28 at Mobile World Congress 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 or her phone number. A pop-up message requesting the physician’s unique identification number then appears 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 & 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 Healthcare
