European Commission

The European Commission is coordinating a common European response to the coronavirus outbreak, taking resolute action to reinforce the public health sectors in the European Union.
In the context of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the European Commission launched the COVID-19 Clinical Management Support System (CMSS). The aim is to support doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals in hospitals that are currently dealing with COVID-19 cases all over the EU, UK and the EEA countries. This system allows for professionals to communicate easily with colleagues, exchange knowledge, discuss cases and improve training, namely via webinars.
Based on the experience with the European Reference Networks, the initiative helps create rapid connections across Europe among all involved healthcare professionals and hospitals in the management of COVID-19. Health workers can rely on a dedicated helpdesk managed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) to set up web conferences and exchange with their peers in Europe opinions about possible treatments and about how to handle severe and complex cases.
