On Monday November 20th, 2017 the first version of the Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) went live.
CPMS is a secure web-based application to support European Reference Networks in the diagnosis and treatment of rare or low prevalence complex diseases or conditions across national borders. European Commission DG SANTÉ released this first version of the CPMS on Monday, November 20th. During this first phase all ERNs will familiarise themselves with the system in order to assure optimal functionality.
CPMS will realise one of the ERNs core tasks; bringing expert specialised care to all patients in Europe.
The system will allow for virtual consultation across national borders, ensuring that the needed expertise can travel to the patient, instead of the other way around. At a later stage the CPMS will become available for healthcare providers outside ERNs to consult the highly specialised experts within ERNs.
