Suva Headquarters, Fluhmattstrasse 1, Lucerne, Switzerland

Switzerland has the choice: Health. Everything digital?

Digitalisation of the Swiss healthcare system is progressing, but at a rather leisurely pace. Telemedicine, the electronic patient dossier as well as numerous innovative treatment methods and other developments promise not only cost savings but also an improvement in medical care. But the question arises: Will we move inside a purely digital health ecosystem in the near future? What are the opportunities, challenges and risks of this change?

The federal elections on 22 October are approaching, and this raises the question of how politicians assess digitalisation in healthcare. Digitalswitzerland is looking forward to an evening of open exchange and lively discussion on this topic and would like to thank Suva for their hospitality.

Attention: The event will be held in German.

Digital Xchange “Why machines can’t replace us (yet)?”

This Digital Xchange format, organised as part of the Swiss Digital Days 2023 will address the topic of Artificial Intelligence.
Sarah Dégallier Rochat shows that humans and machines are categorically different. Where machines excel in pattern recognition, predictions and the processing of large data sets, humans impress with contextual understanding, flexibility and ethical judgement.

The AI apocalypse conjured up in the media is therefore unrealistic: many tasks cannot yet be automated and therefore remain the domain of humans (for the time being).

How AI has affected the labour market so far, why the horror scenarios spread by the media persist and why the foreseeable future – from a scientific point of view – lies in collaboration between humans and machines, we will discuss at the “DigitalXchange: Why machines can’t replace humans (yet)”.

*Event will be held in French and German.*

Community Talks on “Res Publica Digitalis – eGovernment reimagined” (in German)

Take part in this exciting webinar with experts from digitalswitzerland’s eGov network, which revolves around digitalswitzerland’s “Res Publica Digitalis” concept. The ideal digital transformation of public administration, which digitalswitzerland would like to accompany and promote, is based on resident-centricity, collaboration and interoperability. digitalswitzerland is not reinventing the wheel, however, numerous projects already exist that are pursuing and implementing precisely this approach. Two of these projects will be examined in more detail.
