The epSOS project came to an end in June 2014. To build on our technical results please visit the Wiki or the OpenNCP community. With this letter we would like to highlight the achievements of the project, outline initiatives taking the results forward, inform about where project outputs can be accessed after the project, and last but not least thank you for your collaboration and support during these past years.
The epSOS project has collaborated closely with the expand project www.expandproject.eu and this is the best place to get active in the follow on discussions.
Since 2013, the Open Source reference implementation, commonly referred to as OpenNCP that connects the national eHealth system of a Participating Nation to the epSOS network is available. The “gold release” of version 2.1.0, which is the LAST release planned under epSOS, was released on 18 December 2013. It includes the Medication Related Overview (MRO) service and the Continuous Integration (CI) facility.
