25.11.2020: The electronic patient record in Switzerland – from EPD burnout to positive outlook?

The development of the electronic patient record has been a bumpy road from the start, with no light at the end of the tunnel. With frustrated stakeholders, funds going to waste and the postponement of the launch, we’ve asked ourselves: is there any way to save this crucial project, launch it and, most importantly, make it attractive for patients to use it?

For our digital session on 25th Nov, we have invited experts Anna Granta and Walid S. Ahmed from «Bright Insight» to share their insights on the crucial issues surrounding the development of the electronic patient record, and the way forward.

Bright Insight GmbH supports the players in the electronic patient record to achieve EPDG certification. Based on that, a legally compliant EPD can be created that is secure, functional and practicable.
