Cuore – the Swiss health platform For better coordination of care

Digital, networked – and above all patient-oriented: “Cuore – the Swiss healthcare platform” is the next step on the road to the healthcare of the future. Developed by Swiss Post, made for service providers and patients alike: with various services for networking and easy communication of treatment-relevant data. As safe as it is uncomplicated – for better, simpler care coordination with added value for everyone.

Cuore – the solution at a glance The heart of digital networking in healthcare

Service providers such as medical practices, hospitals or rehabilitation facilities are able to save resources – and can better concentrate on patient care.

Cuore as solution

  • What is Cuore?
    Cuore is a neutral platform for networking and data transfer. Services tailored to your needs make daily work and collaboration easier than ever – but remain secure as usual. 

 

  • Who is Cuore for? 
    Service providers benefit from an ever-growing range of digital services, including from other solution providers. Specialized patient services enable secure interaction between health professionals and their patients.

 

  • How does Cuore work with the electronic patient record (EPR)? 
    Using the “EPR gateway”, treatment-relevant documents can be saved automatically and validated multiple times in the patient’s EPR and are easily available to the patient.

Here are the services behind Cuore Patient-oriented, digital and connected

Cuore – Core Services | Swiss Post

Core Services The technical basis

One Core Service is the Patient Master Data Management Service, where patient data from the various connected facilities on the platform is collated in a single file (the patient master).

Another example is the Identity and Access Management Service, where users are identified in a secure manner and then only have access to data for which they have access rights.

We can also mention the Healthcare Provider Data Management Service, where all healthcare service providers are recorded in a central directory that contains all the relevant information on the service providers.

More detailed information on all Core Services can be found on our Cuore microsite.

E-collaboration services Collaboration made easy

The E-collaboration services support healthcare professionals along the treatment path, ease the workload in administrative processes, and simplify the exchanging of technical information.

An example here is E-report transfer. Connected stakeholders can exchange treatment data with each other in a secure, system-compatible way. A copy can be sent to the patient via the official electronic patient record (EPR).

More detailed information on all E-collaboration services can be found on our Cuore microsite.

E-patient services For patient welfare

E-patient services put the patients in the center and enable the direct exchange of information between them and health professionals. Active participation from the patients is a prerequisite.

An example of such a service is Virtual Visit, a telemedicine service. To save travel time and to carry out a triage, the consultation can also be conducted virtually on a tablet, smartphone or computer. The patient is received in a virtual waiting room, and is able to get the consultation notes straight afterwards in encrypted form.

You will find more detailed information on all E-patient services on our Cuore microsite.

Integration Services Step by step to a health ecosystem

Integration services form the interface for systems and services with Cuore. They ensure that Cuore can interact and work together efficiently with all health ecosystem stakeholders. 

An example here is the EPR gateway. Documents that are exchanged between health professionals can automatically be made available in the patient’s EPR. The gateway validates the documents and makes sure they are EPR-compatible.
