Smart Open Services for European Patients (epSOS)

epSOS stands for Smart Open Services for European Patients and focuses on Interoperable Patient Summaries and ePrescribing. It involves 27 beneficiaries from 12 EU-member states, including ministries of health, national competence centres and industry. The project will deliver and validate interoperable patients' summaries and ePrescription solutions, which will enable the exchange of data in a safe, secure and interoperable manner also across national borders. The solutions (applications/services) will be based on existing national systems.

Ensuring that such solutions meet user needs is one of the key challenges for epSOS. The involvement of all key stakeholders including health professionals, patients, insurers and other Member States which are not directly involved in the project, is key for the success of epSOS.
