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).
