BARCELONA, Spain -- February 21, 2013

Orange, 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 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 on 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
phone number. A pop-up message requesting the physician’s unique
identification number then appears in order to complete the authentication

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

“We are very pleased to beat the forefront of the technological evolution of
the healthcare sector, and we are confidentthat this solution will open up
significant opportunities in the area of mobility anddata security for
healthcare professionals and their patients,” said Thierry Zylberberg,
Director of Orange Healthcare.
