A Solution Born Out of Close Cooperation



DORNER has a wide portfolio of software products mostly for medical institutions. The company was recently tasked to compile a comprehensive concept for a shared electronic health record in cooperation with the cantonal office for imprisonment and care in Bern, Switzerland, and the forensic psychiatric service at the university of Bern. These two institutions are responsible for the medical and psychological care of inmates in prisons in the Bern canton.

The Need to Upgrade

Digitalization spares no industry and the team was tasked to produce up-to-date work tools for efficient use of time and resources. As new things come with inherent dangers, part of the team’s challenge is to ensure that the soon-to-be work tools adhere to legal specifications.

The Creation of EPAplus – Electronic Health Record

Since it’s DORNER’s corporate philosophy to develop practical and customizable solutions in cooperation with its customers, it’s not surprising that the first solution they came up with was a joint design of a detailed concept. Based on this concept, they also worked together in the development and customization of the multi-purpose software, and so EPAplus – Electronic Health Record was born. DORNER also helped the two offices come up with the concept for the implementation of the new multi-purpose software, as well as with the training and product launch.

Achieved Efficiency and Progress 

The use of the new multi-purpose software, EPAplus – Electronic Health Record, has increased the offices’ overall efficiency. It’s a vital cog in the incorporation of important third-party systems and in progress control monitoring using pre-defined milestones. It’s also resulted in better project organization,

DORNER Health IT Solutions will be attending our IndustryForum Healthcare in Switzerland on the 7th and 8th of March 2017 in Switzerland as a solution provider.
