CSS has the first certified data collection centre in Switzerland

On 1 January 2013, the data collection centre of CSS became the first of its kind in Switzerland that manages hospital bills electronically. On the one hand, its standardised regulations guarantee data privacy for every person insured with CSS; on the other hand, it paves the way for quick and client-oriented invoicing with hospitals. The data collection centre, which started in July 2012, has cutting-edge technology and was certified soon afterwards by the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS) at the end of October 2012.
