The OSSE registry software

For enquiries regarding current register versions, please reach out to:
The OSSE registry software itself can be downloaded in one of two ways:

  • Build OSSE from source
  • OSSE Docker Image (coming soon)

Release notes

The version history and details about every software release are continously documented in the changelog.


To help setup OSSE registries, we provide the following documents:

  • A Bridgehead guide that describes how to import data extracted from an existing registry solution into an own OSSE Bridgehead to participate in the OSSE decentral search infrastructure. (Only in German for now.)

Data protection concept template

Here you will find templates for data protection concepts for OSSE-based patient registers in German and English. The templates are GDPR-compliant (2018).

We would like to point out that these are non-binding templates whose specific adaptation to the respective register is the responsibility of the user.


Patient consent template

We provide a template to create informed patient consent forms together with supplementary material in a zip Archive.
