What is the EPR not?

The EPR does not contain all the electronically recorded health information concerning a patient, but only that which is relevant for other health professionals and for subsequent treatment.

Not a complete medical record

Alongside the EPR, health professionals continue to maintain their patients’ complete medical records. These records contain far more information than the EPR – for example, personal notes made by the professional treating the patient.

Not a place for storing official files

Authorities or health insurers cannot store documents in – or access – the EPR.
