The Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) is a web-based clinical software application providing a secure platform which aims to support ERNs in improving the diagnosis and treatment of rare or low prevalence complex diseases across national borders of Member States in Europe. The platform enables healthcare professionals to collaborate and assist each other on patient cases. The CPMS will provide improvements in patient care, diagnosis and treatment since Healthcare providers will have access to a platform which enables them to communicate with highly specialised Healthcare Provider Representatives of each European Reference Network. This is a huge undertaking and there is no such multinational clinical system currently in existence. The system is supported by Virtual Communication Tools and DICOM viewers to facilitate the interaction between clinicians. This allows for all data to be stored on one secure platform where clinicians can also communicate and invite others to participate. Each user must request access to the CPMS system through the Software as a Service website, this is so that each person can be fully authenticated before accessing patient cases. The CPMS also requires two-step authentication when logging in and so some brief documents have been created to guide users on using these systems. All necessary links to request access and use the system are available on the CPMS website.
(Please note that access to this system is available only for members of our ERN)
To find out more about the thinking behind the platform and how we expect it to work and be used in the future the Commission have produced this short video.
The leaflet provides a brief description on how to request access and submit patient cases.
