Case Study Swiss Federal Office of Public Health BAG



„iRIX has understood exactly what our needs for master data management are. She advised us excellently, developed a professional, comprehensive concept and enabled us with a cost-effective pilot solution to quickly start a productive operation.“


Kris Haslebacher,  Application Manager Master Data Management,

Health and Accident Insurance






The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) would like to set up a central, professional master data administration system for the health insurance sector. This need is reflected in the development of a master data management system with data from various insurers. However, the project threatens to mutate into a large-scale project for which a public tender is necessary. As there is no experience in the field of master data administration yet and the whole project is under time pressure, a two-stage procedure is chosen: iRIX is to develop a comprehensive concept with architectural proposals on the one hand and offer a cost-effective pilot solution that can manage multilingual master data and can also be expanded.





iRIX has developed a concept for a long-term solution after a thorough analysis of needs, which can later be implemented through a public tender. At the same time, iRIX implemented a cost-effective pilot solution and put it into production within a very short time. The solution can be easily extended because data vault alike technique has been selected as the underlying modelling concept.










With the help of detailed documentation and examples, the customer is now in a position to independently expand the solution by himself for simple extensions. The master data can now be created and maintained in several languages. The iRIX solution is also very cost-effective in terms of license and maintenance costs.
