eInvoicing Directive 2014/55/EU

The Action has achieved its objectives, namely to promote and accelerate the uptake of e-Invoicing in the health sector, building on the results of the CEF funded action 2015-EU-IA-0058 which resulted in eInvoicing tools for the EDICOM B2B Cloud Platform that ease the adoption of eInvoicing Directive 2014/55/EU. The Action reused these eInvoicing tools and integrate them with the ERP systems of the end users. Each end user entity developed their ERP (enterprise resource planning) software integration of EN semantic model and deployed the automated interoperation and intercommunication within EDICOM B2B and HBS Platforms.

The Action resulted in 15 end user entities being able to send and/or receive electronic invoices compliant with the EN and through the PEPPOL network. These end users included 12 hospitals (10 from Hungary, 1 from Slovakia and 1 from Belgium) and 3 other eInvoice senders/receivers (Portuguese and Italian hospital suppliers and a French university).
