Post E-Health in the canton of Ticino

Sound solution for complex treatment

The Swiss Post e-health platform forms the basis for the reTIsan project, the electronic patient record in the canton of Ticino. It is currently used for the confidential exchange of data for oncology patients.

As part of the Rete Sanitaria programme, the electronic patient record has been used for oncology patients in the canton of Ticino under the name reTIsan since 2014.
Patient data is documented in the reTIsan record from the time the diagnosis is made. This ensures that a patient’s medical history is fully recorded and that treatment is optimally coordinated by the various professionals involved. Patients’ files are managed by their respective physicians. Patients have access to this data together with their physicians.

Exemplary project

Today, reTIsan generates valuable data concerning the use and benefits of the patient record in the canton of Ticino. Based on these findings, the electronic patient record is to be gradually expanded to include other medical areas. The reTIsan project meets the evaluation criteria for basic components on a “nationwide” level with a high degree of development. In June 2015 it was awarded the highest label “Nationwide – Strategy-compliant – Multi-Community 2015” by the eHealth Suisse coordinating body.
