22. March 2018

How do hostpitals get more from their investment in the EPDG 2020 legal framework?


By 2020, the EPD will be an integral part of the Swiss healthcare system.

In order to comply by 2020 with federal law on electronic patient records and corresponding legislation on electronic patient files hospitals need to invest now. The main goal of the investment is to comply with the federal government’s requirements.  How else can hospitals benefit from this investment?

Four presentations by experts will demonstrate how the introduction of the EPD has other benefits for hospitals.
