1.General Information

Main objective of this page is providing to the Member States (eHNCP end-users) a single entry which summarize all the mandatory information related to the Central Services hosted by the Service Provider.

The two main blocks are:

The European Commission (DG Santé) is providing two different environments for Operation and Testing purpose, all the instructions and procedures related to the services are describe below (addresses, credentials etc.).

     1.1 Central Configuration Services

The eHealth DSI Configuration Services is currently composed by the Service Metadata Publisher and Service Metadata Locator (SMP/SML) implemented under the eDelivery Building Blocks. This technology adds dynamic capability look-up throw the BDXL specification.

     1.2 Central Terminology Services

In order to achieve semantic interoperability there is the need for a common vocabulary (Master ValueSet Catalogue - MVC, English by default) to describe the clinical data.

The MVC should be presented to the End-Users in the MS desired language and code systems.

For that, MS should be able to translate, map and transcode (creating the Master Translation/Transcoding Catalogue MTC) according to their national policies.

The purpose of the Central Terminology Services (CTS) is to provide a platform to MVC publishing and MTC management and distribution.


Note: The list of all environments can be found on eHDSI Environments .
