Switzerland has an outstanding healthcare system which is accessible to everyone. It is, however, costly. Transparency is needed to improve effectiveness and further increase the level of quality. This is why we are active in areas such as healthcare research. Healthcare researcher Carola Huber scrutinised the healthcare landscape and, in doing so, contributed to further improving the system – for each and every one of us.

Timea and her avatar

Timea Ulrich's cancer treatment kept her from attending school for several months. Thanks to her avatar, Nao, she was still able to stay on top of things. Find out about Timea's experience with Nao and how she joked around.

Timea, what was your first contact through your avatar Nao like? My heart almost burst with joy! I was so happy that Nao let me participate in class again and I no longer needed to study on my own. Then, when I saw my friends on the screen for the first time, it was simply amazing.

What do you like about Nao? The fact that Nao allows me to see, hear and talk to my teachers and friends. I can even use Nao to joke around a bit. One time, my friend Elisa was alone in the classroom and looking for something. I decided to talk through Nao: Elisa, what are you looking for? She was so shocked! Nao is even good at yoga and dancing Gangnam Style.

How did you participate in classes? I was able to control Nao with my tablet. For example, I could make him put his arm up to answer questions or write, draw and pass task sheets back and forth. Drawing and writing with the pen was especially cool.
