First version of the Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) 

The Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) is the official ERN patient management tool, critical for Patient care, diagnosis and treatment, allow Virtual meetings to discuss and prepare outcome. On 20th November of 2017 the European Commission - DG Santé has launched the first version of the CPMS platform to include the first real cases to be treated. 

The 1st CPMS version is part of a pilot phase that will be an important part of the roll-out plan.  This phase will last until end of February 2018. It is an opportunity for users to gain experience in the system with real clinical data and with real consultations.

In this phase all ERNs are invited to enrol patients in order to have a meaningful experience with the system. Transplantchild through the Healthcare working group will be part of this phase, providing a real case, and evaluating the virtual consultation process through the available tools of the CPMS platform.
