Intro: Le dossier électronique du patient dans la pratique :quels seront les changements au quotidien ?
The focus of the event is the upcoming in 2017 Federal Act for the Electronic Patient Records. Each citizen who is affiliated with the health insurance in Switzerland will now have the possibility to consult his medical data anywhere and at any time. The patient’s record may contain, for example, reports, laboratory data or X-rays. It is the patients who decide which data will be recorded and what taccess to this data will be given (who, when, which).
During this Symposium, several months before the introduction of the electronic patient record, Public Health Switzerland would like to inform about the current state of implementation, with a focus on public health.
It would be discussed if the easy and quick access to medical data will result in more effective, safer and better treatments, and what would be the changes that hospitals and medical practices must prepare.
Furthermore, the discussion will focus on patients, who will have direct access to their medical data, and the important role that the media will play in introducing the patient’s electronic record.
