About HoNCAB

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.

For this reason, HoNCAB’s main objective is to obtain a better understanding of the financial and organisational requirements that may arise as a result of a patient receiving healthcare outside the Member State of affiliation, thus preparing hospitals for the new conditions applying after the entry into force of the EU’s rules on patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare (Directive 2011/24/EU).

The project will also set up a pilot network of hospitals, with the aim to share between Member States practical experiences, problems and solutions related to cross-border care.
