Key decision makers and thought leaders from the Swiss healthcare industry will gather in the Kursaal Bern once again on 12 September for the Swiss eHealth Summit 2019. Now in its 12th edition, the Summit will address the opportunities that will shape the future of healthcare, as well as the potential challenges which will come with the introduction of the Electronic Patient Dossier (EPD) in Switzerland. This year, the strategic Summit day will be preceded by an inaugural Community gathering on the day before, 11 September, featuring a brand new concept bringing speakers and audience closer together through an interactive and engaging format. Speakers and participants will focus on achieving tangible results that will guide and influence healthcare developments in Switzerland. The Swiss eHealth Summit is organized by HIMSS Europe and the Swiss Society of Medical Informatics in cooperation with the HIMSS D-A-CH community and partners.
