The quality of treatment and the efficiency of its performance are decisively influenced by the available patient data in a hospital. It must be available to doctors and nurses everywhere and at any time – especially at the patient's bed.
The electronic patient file (Electronic Medical Record, EMR for short) from Swisscom provides medical personnel with a user-friendly portal that is accessed via a tablet. It enables secure access to digital patient information in compliance with data protection legislation from a variety of sources, including examination reports, lab reports or DICOM images from different imaging procedures.
Doctors and nurses can use this digitalised solution to perform necessary clarifications directly at the patient's bed, discuss options with the patient, and make informed decisions.
This eliminates the need to perform time-consuming research later on, and the direct involvement of all involved helps improve patient safety and satisfaction.
