Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN)
Infrastructure building to enable nationwide use and exchange of health data for research

An initiative of the Swiss Government

The Swiss Personalized Health Network is a national initiative under the leadership of the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMS). In collaboration with the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics it contributes to the development, implementation and validation of coordinated data infrastructures in order to make health-relevant data interoperable and shareable for research in Switzerland. 

SPHN has adopted a federative approach by building upon – and supporting – existing data sources and infrastructures across the country. To make health data interoperable and accessible for research, SPHN rallies all decision-makers from key clinical, research-, research support institutions and patient organizations around the same table.
