The Dutch healthcare system has had electronic patient dossiers (EPD) for five years now and the EPD is being introduced in Switzerland in April 2020 – a move that is set to bring major changes to the healthcare system. This topic fits in ideally with Future Health Basel – the conference for selected national and international decision-makers and change-makers in the healthcare sector. The conference is an initiative of the Swiss Economic Forum and the Chamber of Commerce of the two Basel cantons, and aims to strengthen and better network the Swiss healthcare industry.
The electronic patient dossier in Switzerland is one of five topics being offered on the day of the congress, which is being staged in the format of “deep dive sessions” for immersion, in-depth study, reflection and discussion. In addition to international keynote speakers and the most important actors of the Swiss healthcare system, patients will also be speaking at Future Health Basel. New congress formats make it possible for the inputs of speakers, start-ups and patients to be viewed from different perspectives.
