A contract with the Swiss Network
At the end of 2017, HUG signed a partnership contract with the Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN).
This national initiative is designed to encourage the development of personalized medicine in Switzerland and exploit the potential of big data on a national level.
It involves optimising the use of data collected for research by ensuring the interoperability of IT systems, while respecting the legal and ethical frameworks.
The Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences is overseeing the implementation of this initiative on behalf of the federal government.
