Is health-care tourism expected from/to other European countries?

Authors: Ingrid Wilbacher, Valentina Prevolnik Rupel

Internal reviewers: Ingrid Rosian

  • See LEG 3

Currently there is no health care tourism expected for structured telephone support for chronic heart failure patients. In case of (emergency) treatment abroad and re-transfer into the home-country the appropriate information and continuity of care has to be guaranteed. The routine provision of structured telephone support across borders (in our outside Europe) is expected to be limited by language.

Cross border healthcare directive – relevant regulations see LEG 3
