Project description

Travelling in Europe?

Imagine you are in a European city and need unexpected medical attention. The European Patients Smart Open Services (epSOS) is an eHealth initiative aiming for a cross-border interoperability platform that allows access to health records and use of electronic prescriptions in European countries, while a citizen is in a foreign country.

iUZ has performed an important role on consulting activities, regarding the assembling of the Portuguese epSOS NCP, as well as, the convergence with profiles and standards (e.g. IHE Profiles) for clinical information communication and formats (namely the Portuguese Patient Summary building process), allowing the integration of the Portuguese Health Data Platform (PDS) with the epSOS network.
