The electronic patient record
Information for the public
The introduction of the electronic patient record (EPR) brings Swiss healthcare professionals together in a network. Citizens play an important role in this: thanks to the personal EPR, they always have access to their own medical data and can decide for themselves who else also has access to their EPR.
The benefits of a personal EPR
- In addition to healthcare professionals, citizens can also store documents that are important to them in their personal EPR (such as patient decrees or data they measure themselves) and add information.
- In a medical emergency, access to all important health data is guaranteed.
- The EPR increases the quality and safety of care as all healthcare professionals involved in a treatment have access to the relevant treatment data at all times.
