Digitally networked, humanly connected

The «Digitally networked, humanly connected» event, held on 20 February 2024, was opened by Federal Councillor Elisabeth Baume-Schneider. In her address to the attendees – around 320 key healthcare players – she emphasised the importance of a strong and affordable primary care system, and of close cooperation between all the partners involved.

From her perspective, the top priority was digital transformation – the theme of this year’s conference – which should help to strengthen the health system. While substantial investments in digitalisation had already been made in Switzerland, they were not sufficiently coordinated. To facilitate digital access to vital health information, there was a need for improved networking of the various systems.
