About us

Patientrecord.ch is the official information platform on the electronic patient record (EPR) by eHealth Suisse, the Confederation and the cantons.

The provision of healthcare is the responsibility of the cantons. However, e-Health projects must be effective across cantonal borders because people are very mobile nowadays: they move, change doctors or travel to other regions. National digital networking is the best way to tackle this.

The national EPR project therefore envisages a national framework (the Federal Act on the Electronic Patient Record) with regional or national implementation which is carried out by EPR providers (EPR communities).
