Rule of Thought: Medical Tourism Association® to Address EU Cross-Border Healthcare Symposium
Strategies Presented at International Public Policy Event on EU Directive, June 18, 2014, in Brussels, Belgium
Public health practitioners, physicians and clinicians, government policy makers, academe, insurance executives and related tourism and travel interests are invited to “Cross-Border Healthcare in Europe: Improving Cooperation to Deliver a Patient-Centered System,” which will enable participants to exchange innovative approaches to the directive that enables European citizens to receive medical care when necessary in any EU member destination when comparable treatment is not readily accessible in the state where the patients are insured.
“The cross-border directive has the potential to improve existing patient healthcare systems in the European Union and, at the same time, develop a number of sites equipped with the proper resources – geography, climate, transportation and hospitality infrastructure and, of course, quality medical services -- into attractive health travel destinations,”
