Industrial collaborations

The SMIS project has a long lasting cooperation with Axalto, recently merged with Gemplus to form Gemalto, the world's leading providers of microprocessor cards. Gemalto provides SMIS with advanced hardware and software smart card platforms which are essential to validate numbers of our research results. In return, SMIS provides Gemalto with application requirements and technical feedbacks that help them adapting their future platforms towards data intensive applications.

SMIS has also a growing cooperation with Santeos, an Atos Origin company developing software platforms of on-line medical services. Santeos was one of the consortia selected by the French Ministry of Health to host the future DMP (the national Personal Medical Folder initiative) during its prefiguration phase. This cooperation helps us tackling one of our targeted applications, namely the protection of medical folders.

Secure and Mobile Healthcare folder : DMSP project

Category: project funded by the Yvelines District Council (CG78)

Duration: December 2006 – December 2009

Partners: INRIA-SMIS (coordinator), Gemalto, Univ. Versailles-PRiSM, Santeos (Atos Origin)

Description: Electronic Health Record (EHR) projects have been launched in most developed countries to increase the quality of care while decreasing its cost. Despite the unquestionable benefits provided by EHR systems in terms of information quality, availability and protection against failures, patients are reluctant to leave the control over highly sensitive data (e.g., data revealing a severe or shameful disease) to a distant server. This project capitalizes on a new hardware portable device, called SPT, associating the security of a smart card to the storage capacity of a USB key, to give the control back to the patient over his medical data. The objective is to complement a traditional EHR server with data management techniques embedded in SPT (1) to protect and share highly sensitive data among trusted parties and (2) to provide a seamless access to the data even in disconnected mode. The proposed architecture will be experimented in the context of a medico-social network providing medical care and social services at home for elderly people. The experiment will be conducted with a population of about 120 volunteer patients and practitioners in the Yvelines district. The experiment in the field will start in January 2010 from a 18 months period and will be funded thanks to an extension of the DMSP agreement.
