Unilabs is a leading diagnostics service provider in Europe and in particular Switzerland with a turnover of 800 million euros. Established in 1987, the group now has over 200 laboratories worldwide with 6900 workers in 14 countries. In Switzerland alone (where it was founded), Unilabs has 40 facilities dedicated to daily patient care. Innovation is core to the Unilabs groups values. In 2010, the electronic prescription service “e-Unilabs” was launched with many key benefits such as simplifying the prescription analysis process and relevant follow-ups, automatically transmitting information to doctors offices etc.

Broadly, the Group focus is with patient data management and part of their service portfolio is organising and transmitting test results securely.

This document will mainly focus on how the Unilabs Group co-oardinates analysis requests and transmits analysis reports securely.
