The CPMS is a secure IT-Platform used by clinicians across Europe to discuss patient cases without the patients having to travel. The ERN Experts (from one or more ERNs) gather in multidisciplinary panels and use CPMS to carry out e-consultations of rare and complex cases. Patient medical documents can be safely uploaded to the CPMS after a consent form has been signed by the patient.
Integrated tools in CPMS allow peer-to-peer communication, viewing of digital documents and recording expert contributions. This promotes an active collaboration, sharing knowledge and experience within and across ERNs. The health professionals are ultimately aiming an outcome either as a diagnosis, treatment, clinical trial or other.
