eHealth trio the i-engineers, Visionary and inacta make hospitals fit for the electronic patient dossier EPD

25. August 2017

Zurich / Zug - In the second half of 2018, the Swiss population will have the opportunity to create an electronic patient dossier. As a stationary care provider, hospitals are required by law to join a certified community by 2020. Time is thus pressing to adapt the organization and the IT resources of the hospitals. Three well-established eHealth companies offer a unique combination of solutions and competencies from a single source.

The challenges for the hospitals and clinics are enormous: they have to secure the access to the electronic patient dossier EPD under high time pressure by law. This involves a large number of organizational and IT-technical adaptations to specialist applications and internal processes. For example, inpatient care providers need to consolidate and provide multiple data from a variety of sources, such as HIS, laboratory or X-ray systems, for use under the EPDG. In order to increase their efficiency, it is also necessary to provide appropriate interfaces with general practitioners, other hospitals, patients, emergency services, medical call centers and pharmacies. Many institutions are not aware enough of the complexity or do not have enough resources. However, a speedy implementation is necessary.

That's why the eHealth specialists i-engineers, Visionary and inacta have agreed a strategic cooperation. Each partner has many years of experience and sophisticated solutions in the healthcare sector. Hospitals and clinics now benefit from the following offer from a single source:

  • The i-engineers' modular, integrated health engine solution for the electronic patient file - including interfaces according to the EPDG and integration and coordination within the organization
  • Visionary's docbox, the largest eHealth platform in Switzerland for networking with general practitioners, hospitals, patients, emergency services, medical call centers, pharmacies and the pharmaceutical industry.
  • The extensive expertise in business processes and digitization strategies in the healthcare sector as well as proven expertise in project management by inacta.

The aforementioned services can be obtained from all three cooperation partners. The eHealth Trio guarantees professional support, solution-oriented cooperation and optimal networking with referrers, partners and patients.
