Audit Introduction of the electronic patient record - Federal Office of Public Health

Audit number: 19265

On 15 April 2017, the Federal Council brought the Federal Act on the Electronic Patient Record (EPRA) into force. From April 2020, hospitals and rehabilitation clinics must join a certified core community and from spring 2020, patients should be able to open an electronic patient record (EPR). In the future, it should be possible to store treatment-related information from the patient's medical history in the EPR. Healthcare professionals involved in treating a patient will be able to view and supplement this data.
