Certification of a data collection point for health insurers by KPMG 

The Swiss Federal Council has put the revisions to the Federal Health Insurance Act (KVG) concerning the transfer of data between those issuing invoices and insurers into effect starting 1 January 2013. By 2014 at the latest, physicians and hospitals are obliged to transfer all patient-related administrative and medical data to certified data collection points – and with full guarantees of data security.
