epSOS, Switzerland in pilot operation mode

Since 19 June 2013 Swiss citizens are able to make use of the epSOS Patient Summary service when going to another epSOS piloting country.  The University Hospitals of Geneva and HES as participating pilot site offer the epSOS Patient Summary service for outgoing Swiss patients. "Switzerland is not a member state of the EU, yet our experiences in epSOS are of great value to us“, says Adrian Schmid, Head of the Swiss Coordination Office for eHealth. The Swiss epSOS Patient Summary can then be retrieved by an authorized health professional in one of the many epSOS pilot sites abroad (see: www.epsos.eu/poc_database).
