  • Cross-Border Healthcare in Europe:
    Removing the Barriers to Deliver Clarity and QualityTuesday, February 26, 2013. The Silken Berlaymont Hotel, BrusselsThe EU Directive on Patients’ Rights in Cross-Border Healthcare seeks to eliminate obstacles hindering patients from receiving treatment in another Member State. Rules for receiving cross-border healthcare and reimbursement of these costs are not always clear and, as such, the Directive provides more transparency and also clarifies who is responsible for quality and safety of care in cross-border settings.

    This timely international symposium will tackle challenges to the implementation of cross-border healthcare and its impact on patient safety and quality, health professionals’ mobility and European standards for healthcare services.
