Offerings in the healthcare sector
The healthcare sector is in the midst of a digital transformation. As a leading ICT company, we are supporting this transformation with appropriate technology. We are contributing to a more efficient and patient-centred healthcare system and opening up promising and exciting business opportunities.
We are networking the Swiss healthcare system by making health information digitally accessible to customers and nursing staff. We are enabling a simple and secure exchange of data and thus increasing quality in the healthcare sector.
In 2020, we expanded our customer base in the healthcare sector: currently, some 4,000 medical practices, 550 therapy practices, 150 hospitals and 70 laboratories and institutes use our solutions.
In addition, 14 Swiss cantons are relying on our technology as they introduce electronic patient dossiers (EPD). Around 60% of hospitals, nursing homes and general practitioners are in the catchment area of the XAD core community and more than half of the population live there. In the year under review, we made decisive progress in establishing the necessary infrastructure. As soon as the certification procedure of the core communities is completed, the inhabitants will be able to open an EPD. This is expected to happen in spring 2021.
