Early and sufficient information on the treatment of your patients at the USB is important for you as a general practitioner or referring physician. A new free service from the University Hospital Basel offers you the opportunity to receive automated admission and discharge information by e-mail.

These are generated for inpatient cases with contact information of the respective clinics and sent by HIN-secured e-mail to the patient's family doctors and referring physicians. You will also receive the discharge report from most clinics. Any other reports can be viewed and downloaded as usual in the USB ePortal.

Our disability officer is available as a contact person for patients with a disability.

The USB ePortal offers referring general practitioners and specialists a simple and clear way of viewing current patient reports and downloading them in pdf format for practice documentation.

After finalization by the attending physician, the reports are automatically uploaded to the USB ePortal and are available for a period of two years. In addition, appointments for the past two weeks and future planned appointments are displayed.

You can get an overview of the USB-ePortal functions in the demo version.

As an assignor, you can log in again on the website.

To do this, you need either a USB ePortal or a USB web login.

Registering for the USB-Web is easy. All you need is your name, e-mail and GLN number.

Once logged in, the direct telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of all doctors are displayed on the entire website of the University Hospital Basel, regardless of whether you are in the referring physician area or elsewhere on the website.

Note: Your change of address will be updated in the central electronic medical directory, which supplies the most important applications. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a complete transfer to all doctors' files in the USB due to the decentralized way of working.

Your needs, concerns, opinions and experiences as a referring doctor are important to us. By completing the form below, you will help us to optimize our processes and maintain our high quality standards.

Would you like to give us your feedback in person? Then we will be happy to help you.
