Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS)
The Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) was launched by the European Commission (Directorate General for Health and Food Safety – DG SANTE) on November 20th 2017, as a web-based application aimed at supporting the European Reference Networks (ERNs) in improving the diagnosis and treatment of rare or low prevalence complex diseases across national borders of EU Member States.
By providing tools for virtual consultations, the CPMS enables health professionals to enrol patients and share clinical information with other experts within and across ERNs, to carry out collaborative diagnosis and treatment in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR – 2016/679).
The system is also important for future clinical research, as, if the patients consent to it, the data can be entered in registries, and patients can be contacted for clinical trials.
