The "KRG exchange format" was developed by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) based on the data collection model in the electronic patient record (EPR). The basis is the internationally used FHIR standard for data exchange between software systems in the healthcare sector.

Important: reporting persons or institutions send their data to the corresponding cantonal cancer registry or the Childhood Cancer Registry. The NACR does not receive any data from reporting persons or institutions.

IT specialists of reporting institutions and software manufacturers can find an introduction to the "KRG exchange format" as well as all information regarding its application on the FOPH website. It is also possible to have your own test files created in the "KRG exchange format" tested by the FOPH.
