Global Observatory for eHealth


eHealth strategy

Switzerland’s eHealth vision sets out the overarching goals of the health system. It outlines the fields of action and objectives in the implementation and further development of the strategy balanced with the changing needs and conditions of the public. The vision hopes the people in Switzerland can access their health information and draw on the associated benefits, along with their healthcare professionals, regardless of the time and place. It hopes they are active in their health behaviour choices and thereby strengthen their health literacy. The information and communication technologies help with networking the actors in the health sector and ensure that the processes offer better quality, safer and more efficient healthcare.
