Support creation of pilot network of hospitals related to payment of care for cross border patients
Patient mobility across borders is not a new phenomenon. On the contrary, the number of EU citizens who decide to seek healthcare in a Member State other that the Member State of affiliation has been steadily raising.
HoNCAB project has been running since September 2012 with the aim to obtain a better understanding of the financial and organisational requirements arising from the implementation of the Directive on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare, thus preparing hospitals to the new applying conditions.
The project also set up a pilot network of hospitals, the Hospital Network for Care Across Borders in Europe. The Network brings together hospitals interested in sharing experiences and good practices but also critical issues and possible solutions when providing care to cross-border patients.
