Video series

EPA in use

Monika Kummer, director of the regional prison in Bern, accompanies this series of videos about EPAplus in action.


The Office of Corrections of the Canton of Bern manages a total of nine prisons and correctional institutions in which inmate management software is already in use everywhere. Various disciplines, such as the medical service or the psychiatric service, with their actors such as nurses or doctors, had requirements for the software that exceeded the existing range of functions. This was an excellent opportunity for us to show how the DORNER workflow engine can be used to build precisely these bridges. We were able to map the requirements that were placed on us, e.g. treatment documentation or medication, to our complete satisfaction. The result is a stand-alone application called EPAplus.
