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 actions 2015-EU-IA-0058 and 2016-EU-IA-0096 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 Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems of the end users. Each end user entity developed their ERP software integration of EN semantic model and deployed the automated interoperation and intercommunication within EDICOM B2B and HBS Platforms.

The Action resulted in 36 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 36 hospitals (14 from Italy, 9 from Hungary, 1 from Austria and 12 from Belgium).
