Sagem Orga launches innovative solution for patient record portability and confidentiality at HIT Paris

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).
