“Smart Open Services for European Patients, epSOS, is a Europe-wide project organized by 27 beneficiaries representing 23 EU member states, including ministries of health, national competence centres and numerous companies.
The overarching goal of epSOS, is to develop a practical eHealth framework and an Information & Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure that will enable secure access to patient health information, particularly with respect to basic patient summaries and ePrescriptions between different European healthcare systems.
One major challenge was to translate all the selected coding systems used in patient summaries and ePrescriptions,to exchange their contained information across country borders. If a country used other coding systems that the ones selected in the epSOS project, they needed to map their national coding systems to the epSOS selected coding system. But the really big challenge was for all to do it the same way without investing in many different tools for many users.
Therefore, the epSOS project uses HealthTerm® as the 24/7 terminology webserver, where all the national translations and mappings are created using the mapping and translation modules. The final results of these endeavors now represents the epSOS Central Reference Terminology Server for all participating countries.“
