Digital Switzerland Strategy

The Digital Switzerland Strategy sets the guidelines for Switzerland’s digital transformation. It is binding for the Federal Administration. For other stakeholders such as the cantons, communes, business, science and civil society, it serves as an orientation with the aim of making the best possible use of the opportunities of digital transformation for everyone.

Focus themes 2023

Digitalisation in the healthcare sector

Healthcare institutions and professionals are better connected; the emphasis is on the multiple use of data. In order to promote an interoperable healthcare system based on a transparent data ecosystem, and to implement specific measures and projects, a programme is to be developed to promote digital transformation in the healthcare sector.

Digitalisation-friendly legislation

Laws are designed in such a way that they encourage digitalisation instead of inhibiting it. Authorities at all federal levels conduct their business digitally whenever possible and wherever practical. If necessary, non-digital solutions are also offered.

Digital sovereignty

Switzerland examines which political, legal, economic and individual dependencies can be reduced in the digital world. These are weighed against the advantages of international openness and networking.
