French Public Authority Consortium Selects INSIDE Secure’s NFC Technology for E-Health Project

INSIDE Secure (NYSE Euronext: INSD.PA) announced today that the company has been selected by a French public authority consortium led by Docapost BPO, a digital transactions company owned by La Poste, France’s postal service, to provide NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and security expertise for an e-health project.

The e-health project, CoNFianCe, aims to improve the management of home care and services provided to the dependent living at home, in particular the elderly. There are 1.16 million dependent elderly in France, of which 61 per cent live at home. The number of dependent elderly living at home is expected to double by 2050, according to French government figures.

Caregivers around France will be equipped with smartphones developed with INSIDE Secure’s NFC technology. They will use these NFC-enabled smartphones to facilitate the real time management of home care assistance. This includes making very quick updates of administrative, financial and other management records related to each home visit, on-site at the time of the visit. The information will be digitally stored and transmitted to the central office. This saves time as well as reducing the risk of administrative errors. Those under home care will also be equipped with an NFC ID card.

“INSIDE Secure is pleased to have been selected by Docapost to provide security expertise and develop NFC applications that help those in need of home care assistance,” said Bertrand Moussel, Executive Vice President Strategic Business Development, Digital Security at INSIDE Secure. “This e-health project reinforces INSIDE Secure’s leadership role in NFC, a cutting-edge technology showing great promise in a vast number of very important applications worldwide.”

The e-health project is a joint partnership between Docapost and social welfare association Abrapa, located in Bas Rhin (north east France). It is financed by the French Ministry of Industry.
