CompuGroup Medical takes great pride in participating in projects that drive eHealth forward. We are present at multiple levels ranging from local community projects to large Pan-European projects.
CompuGroup Medical is an active participant in the project: European Patients Smart Open Services (epSOS). It is currently the largest European eHealth project organized by 27 benefactors representing 12 EU-member states. The epSOS goal is to establish a common eHealth framework that supports secure access to patient summaries and ePrescriptions across different European healthcare systems. It is structured as an information and communication technology policy support project, through which current healthcare information systems communicate across borders and operate reciprocally.
