Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Is there a minimum age for using the electronic patient record?
A verified SwissID identity is required to be able to open a patient record. This can be created regardless of age (swissid.ch/locations). The minimum age to open the actual patient record in the reference community is 16. Depending on the reference community, it may also be possible to open an EPR from the age of 12 with a legal guardian’s consent. Enquire with your reference community to find out which conditions have to be met.
What are the requirements for my SwissID account to be able to access the electronic patient record?
To be able to access the electronic patient record with your SwissID account, your identity must have been verified in person by an identification point that is certified for the electronic patient record. In addition, you must have given explicit consent on the application form for getting access to the electronic patient record. An overview of the identification points can be found under swissid.ch/locations
I already have an identity which was verified in person, but I am informed that my identity is not yet enabled and/or qualified for accessing the electronic patient record, why is that?
Next to having an identity that was verified in person, there are additional requirements to be able to access the electronic patient record. Please see the other FAQs on this page for more information.
