Medical, technical and social advancements continually alter the environment in which the healthcare system operates and extends what is possible for our customers and patients. So that we can satisfy their individual needs, we, as a healthcare provider integrated into the Swiss healthcare system, continuously invest in the areas of medical innovation, digitalisation and the development of new insurance models. You can find here a selection of our innovation projects.

Medical innovation

Hirslanden Precise

Health and diseases always are a combination of our genetic inheritance and environmental impacts. With Hirslanden Precise we offer genetic counseling and testing in all areas of medicine. The knowledge gained from our genetic makeup enables us to target our preventive measures with greater accuracy and increases the precision of our diagnoses. Moreover, therapies become more precise and the prognosis much more informative. We are therefore able to improve the quality of life of patients with regard to their personal genetic situation.



For our patients covered by supplementary insurance we are consistently putting greater emphasis on the use of innovative surgical techniques such as the da Vinci technology, the robotic arm-assisted macro technologythe CyberKnife as well as customised knee prostheses from the printer.



Integrated digital health platform «Compassana»

Together with other partners, we are developing Compassana – a digital health platform that connects all relevant players in the Swiss healthcare system. In this way we are committed to integrated healthcare in Switzerland and thus generate added value for our patients.


New insurance models

We are continuously working with healthcare insurers to develop supplementary insurance products so that we are in a position to offer healthcare policyholders the greatest possible added value. Our focus is on insurance cover for ground-breaking services which were previously only rarely covered, for example in the field of outpatient, digital or telemedicine. We are therefore promoting flexibility and modular products that can be customised to the individual, for example:

Hirslanden cooperates with Medbase and Helsana to provide proven additional services in the supplementary insurance sector

Such cooperation between an outpatient and inpatient service provider, as well as an insurer, is hitherto unique in Switzerland. The focus is on individual patients: They benefit from services in all health areas: Prevention and health promotion, planning and preparation, outpatient and inpatient care, and follow-up treatment. The expanded offer for semi-private, private and Primeo customers of Helsana is initially available in the Bern area and will gradually be extended to the whole of Switzerland.
