Electronic patient record in Switzerland – from EPD burnout to positive outlook?

November 25, 2020 @ 18:30 - 19:30 CET


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.


We will discuss:
– How Anna and Walid found their way into eHealth
– What the challenges and issues were
– Why there are still so few women in digital or ehealth
– The bumpy road of the electronic patient record until now: How it all started and where it stands now
– Differences between the electronic patient record and health data platforms
– Positive injections: what’s NeNI and how to find a positive outlook that also benefits the patients
