epSOS Technical Aspect


epSOS is the main European electronic Health (eHealth) interoperability project cofunded by the European Commission and 47 beneficiaries. It focuses on improving medical treatment of citizens while abroad by providing health professionals with the necessary patient data.

epSOS identifies several means of interoperability which shall enable the use of cross-border services such as the Patient Summary and ePrescription. The figure below describes the basic blocks of the National Contact Point (NCP). The NCP can act either as NCP-B (country of treatment) and/or as NCP-A (patient’s country of affiliation).
