It provides you with individual recommendations and advice about what to do simply, reliably and in a digital form, thanks to the SymptomCheck feature developed by doctors. You will find the specialised medical dictionary and the medication list to be useful references for getting a basic overview of a range of diseases and medicines. BENECURA is the first medical app of a health insurer in Switzerland, marking a truly unique achievement.

Your advantages

Immediate recommendation
With BENECURA, insured persons can access information easily, reliably and quickly and thus get a recommendation for choosing appropriate steps, getting proper treatment, or contacting the right partner when facing a medical problem.

Available at any time
As your digital contact point, BENECURA is available by smartphone around the clock. This means you can quickly access information about a medical problem and better understand what you need to do.
The app saves your data in encrypted form in a dossier that only you can access. If you wish, you can also provide someone else (e.g. your general practitioner) with access to SymptomCheck. SWICA cannot access your information.

All functions at a glance

The “SymptomCheck” function, which has been especially developed by a committee of medical experts, helps you devise a course of action for an illness or a health problem by asking you a series of questions about what you are experiencing. It then analyses the information you entered and recommends further steps for you to take in addressing the specific medical issue you described.

Here you will find information about suitable doctors, hospitals, therapists and pharmacies that you can access directly. Your insurance model is taken into account when you search for a doctor.

Important numbers
The app allows you not only to contact SWICA or sante24 directly but also to call your general practitioner, a health centre, and many public medical emergency numbers.

Users can always get a personal overview of the information and recommendations they receive and about how their medical condition is progressing.

The medicine search function provides you with all relevant information about medicines.

The specialised medical dictionary gives you an overview of a wide range of illnesses and explains them in detail.

High patient safety

The BENECURA app is a Class 1 medical product that has been developed in accordance with the statutorily prescribed norms of the Medical Device Directive (MDD). This process includes a clinical evaluation and proof that the product delivers the promised medical benefits, meets the stated performance standards, and poses no risk for the user.

Data privacy ensured at all times

The app saves the data in encrypted form in a dossier that only the insured person can access. It complies fully with all the legal provisions on protecting particularly sensitive personal data and on data privacy. SWICA itself cannot view the data at any time. Insured persons decide case-by-case whether, for example, a doctor at sante24 can access the information generated by the SymptomCheck function. We recommend that they do so because the specialists at sante24 then have important preliminary information about their current state of health, which saves time during subsequent discussions. Any such information is subject to medical confidentiality.
