Swiss Post has teamed up with the eHealth Aargau core community association to develop an eHealth platform for the Aargau care region. In a statement issued today (5 July), Swiss Post said that the platform will enable healthcare professionals and their facilities in the Canton of Aargau will be able to exchange data securely and efficiently among themselves, which will “reduce the administrative burden and save on costs”.
The platform will comprise various modules, such as the electronic patient record (ePD) and service centre, referral and transfer solutions, e-medication and e-vaccination records.
Swiss Post added: “The quality of care will improve through efficient processes and the continuous flow of information, while patient safety will increase. Patients will have control over their health data at all times – only they can decide with whom it may be shared.”
