At the Health Information Technologies (HIT, Paris) show in France this week, smart card company Sagem Orga (Safran group) will present their ypsID® Health Key. This unique solution is a strong authentication device that enables people to securely access their personal health records anywhere and at any time.
The ypsID® Health Key is an electronic health record in the form of a USB stick token. A patient can access his or her patient records at any time by simply plugging the token into the USB port of a computer. The smart card-based encryption of the portable health record guarantees secure protection of confidential patient health data. Emergency information can be stored on the portable USB drive of this zero-footprint token – and that can reduce casualty rates in case of emergency.
The ypsID® Health Key token can also be used as a chip & pin strong authentication device to access remote health/hospital records or social security/health insurance portals. As easy as “plug & authenticate,” ypsID® Health Key can thus create an online relationship between patient and hospitals, social security or health insurance companies and help improve patient treatments.
The ypsID® is a highly secured range of devices designed for deployment in conjunction with enterprise PKI projects. The product range includes advanced features: high-end crypto smart cards (EAL4+, Pris***, IAS ECC, FIPS, PIV), tokens (USB, OTP), readers (contact/contactless) and biometric devices (fingerprints, veins, iris).
