From 20 November 2017, the Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS), the ERN software for data sharing and virtual panels, started functioning. This follows the opinion received by the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) on the compliance with EU data protection rules. The 24 ERNs can therefore start using the system to treat and diagnose patients suffering from rare, low prevalence and complex diseases and will now fully develop their potential to offer patients and doctors access to the best expertise and timely exchange of life-saving knowledge. They are set to become a clear demonstration of what solidarity among the health systems of the Member States can do for the people living in Europe! For more information click here.
