OPAN® for Hospitals and Institutions

is the most-used platform for online patient applications for Spitex services.

So that the seamless takeover of care from hospital to Spitex can be assured to take place as quickly as possible, the OPAN® online application system was developed. The system has, through its user friendliness, high availability, and advanced technological standards, risen in a short period of time to Number 1 in Switzerland. The complimentary access to the system is open to all referring persons (institutions, family doctors, and private persons) and does not require prior registration.

The electronic networking between the different partners in the health care sector is becoming ever more meaningful. The demands on the information channels are constantly growing. Data protection and data security as well as efficiency enhancements are important additional success factors in an environment of constantly growing financial pressures.

With OPAN®, institutions, medical practices and private persons can transmit applications reliably and securely to the responsible Spitex organization.

Course of an application

After successful transmission of the application to OPAN®, you will receive a registration report (via e-mail or via computer interface). As soon as the application has been received by the selected Spitex organization, you will be so informed by the same means. If you have chosen a private Spitex organzation, you will receive the confirmation report from it within two office hours or after two additional hours, from the Spitex organization with the service contract.

Interfaces and networking

OPAN offers a fully or partly integrable interface (API) which makes the direct connection of one's own specialized software (KIS) to the OPAN platform possible. With the interface, the time needed to fill out an application can be significantly reduced.
