Worldline collaborates with GIE SESAM Vitale on the digitalisation of Carte Vitale
By Joy Dumasia
Worldline has joined forces with GIE SESAM-Vitale, a major player in the digital transformation of the French healthcare sector, in an innovative partnership to secure the dematerialisation of the Carte Vitale on smartphones. The new Carte Vitale app will offer all insured persons the possibility for online identification and authentication solutions.
The smartphone transforms the relationship between citizens and digital services. Citizens expect to always have all possible services on their smartphones and in mobile situations. Thanks to the “apCV” application installed on their mobile, every citizen will soon be able to use their phone as a simple connection in their healthcare pathway and, more generally, to access the rapidly expanding digital services.
Worldline, a major player in the security of online payments and sensitive, dematerialised operations on smartphones. In this context, Worldline naturally applied to help define the future security solution for the apCV based on its Mobile Security and Authentication Services capabilities.
The innovation partnership concerns the definition, development and deployment of a modern solution, securing the new Carte Vitale application and its associated exchanges, and for local use by health professionals, or remotely for access to state administrative services via a substantial digital identity. All the security features of the new mobile app must be on the same level of security as the physical card.
Claire Deprez – Pipon, Global Product Manager Authentication Services at Worldline, said: “Thanks to our extensive experience in the digitisation of payments on smartphones, we can leverage this high-security expertise for GIE SESAM-Vitale and propose to all sectors and all use cases, our highest level of security assets for mobile security and authentication services. That is why we are very proud to contribute to this project and help creating a smooth, streamlined experience for all insured persons.”
IBS Intelligence recently reported that Worldline, the European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, introduced WL Account-Based Payments and an account-to-account (A2A) payment offering, allowing online businesses to launch their custom branded products payment method.
