Swiss Post set to take majority stake in Axsana

Swiss Post has signed an agreement to take a 75% in the electronic patient record (EPR) company Axsana.

In a statement issued yesterday (9 August), Swiss Post said that its plan is to work together with other parties on paving the way towards a unified technical infrastructure for the EPR.

The EPR is a digital collection of important information concerning a person’s health, which includes data such as a hospital discharge report or a nursing report from a care-at-home organization

Swiss Post said that it sees the EPR as a “cornerstone of digitised healthcare”. Today, the company supports five EPR providersin every linguistic region of Switzerland, as a technology partner.

Axsana offers the EPR under the brand name Xsana in the catchment area of the XAD core community across 14 cantons. The two owners of Axsana, Cantosana and the supporting association XAD, each own half of Axsana, while Swisscom develops and provides Axsana with the technical EPR infrastructure required.

Swiss Post anticipates that its plans to acquire the majority holding in Axsana will come into effect on 30 September. The company is currently in talks with Axsana, Cantosana and the supporting association XAD.

“By taking a majority shareholding in Axsana, we want to advance the electronic patient record and give digitisation in the healthcare sector a further boost,” said Nicole Burth, Member of Executive Management at Swiss Post and Head of the Communication Services unit.

Once Swiss Post has acquired the majority shareholding, Axsana will become a subsidiary of Swiss Post, and will continue to operate as an independent company. The 15 employees at Axsana will continue to be employed at Axsana.
