The EPD : what, how, what for?
Martine Bourqui-Pittet, Director, e-Health Suisse
The electronic patient dossier (EPD) is now a reality in Switzerland. Seven EPD providers are in operation. Now the EPD should become a matter of course for everyone: the entire population and all health professionals. But what is the journey to have and use an EPD ? What good will it do me then?

The electronic patient dossier and "Cuore - the Swiss health platform": The unbeatable combination for the healthcare system.
Rajesh Nair, Director Digital Health, Post-CH Kommunication AG
In order to give the electronic patient dossier further impetus, the benefits must be increased through attractive application options. In its role as EPD system provider, Swiss Post is making its contribution by providing the IT infrastructure. But what are the next steps? What added value can the EPD offer? And how can Swiss Post, with its health platform Cuore, contribute to giving impetus not only to the EPD but to the digitalisation of healthcare in general?
