#RivaDigital Society - for a healthy Switzerland



The Riva Digital Society has set itself the goal to increase the health literacy of the population and thus reduce high blood pressure as a common disease No. 1 in Switzerland. With its ingenious ecosystem, Riva Digital is committed to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

Scipione Riva-Rocci

Riva Digital was founded as a result of the “Most-Collaborative-Bet” within the framework of Digital Switzerland. The name Riva is based on Scipione Riva-Rocci (1863-1937). The Italian physician, pathologist and pediatrician was the first to describe the blood pressure measurement method named after him using a pneumatic arm cuff as a blood pressure device.

Areas of focus

Thanks to the high level of expertise, experience and know-how of its members, the Riva Digital Society focuses on supporting the promotion of individual health. To this end, it uses its networked competencies within the Swiss health care system and creates attractive incentives with new ideas, solutions and content. Within these priorities, the Riva Digital ecosystem plays a central role.


The aim of the society is the promotion of digital solutions and in particular of digital instruments in the health sector, which increases the health competence of the population.
