Swiss Personalized Health Network Governmental Organisation

The Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN) is a national initiative designed to promote the development of personalized medicine and personalized health in Switzerland. The Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMS) was mandated 2016 by the State Secretariat for Education, Research, and Innovation (SERI) and by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) to develop a Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN). The ultimate goal is to promote health and well-being, to prevent, diagnose and treat unfavourable health conditions more precisely, thus reducing the risk of developing such conditions and permitting more effective treatments of disease states with fewer adverse effects.

SPHN will lay the foundations that are needed to facilitate research projects in this area such as a system for a nationwide exchange of health-related data. During the period 2017–2020, priority is given to the development of a nationally coordinated data infrastructure ensuring data interoperability of local and regional information systems with special emphasis on clinical data management systems enabling effective exchange of patient data (e.g. disease phenotypes).
