26.06.2017 - Swiss Post implements digital health platform in south-east Switzerland

(sp) Swiss Post is implementing a platform for the comprehensive exchange of digital health and treatment data in the canton of Graubünden. The platform is available for members of the ‘eHealth Südost Association’. Swiss Post has been developing and running eHealth solutions for the electronic transfer of confidential healthcare information for some years now.
Swiss Post recently won a tender with its comprehensive range of services for a digital healthcare platform in the south-east Switzerland region. In addition to the electronic patient record system (in accordance with the Federal Law on the Electronic Patient Record or EPDG), the service also includes typical B2B applications, such as referral and transfer, e-medication and e-prescription. The service package also includes the secure transfer of medical documents. Also B2C applications , such as e-vaccination records, are included. The ‘eHealth Südost Association’ is also evaluating the option of a service center which could carry out core community functions for the association. Examples of these functions are the registration of patients (including instruction and training), archiving, data protection and data security tasks.
