Healthcare without borders (short version)


High-quality health services are a priority issue for European citizens. Rights to healthcare are also recognised in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU. Health systems and health policies across the EU are becoming more interconnected than ever in the past. This is due to many factors, including movement of patients and professionals (facilitated by rulings of the European Court of Justice), common public expectations across Europe, dissemination of new medical technologies and techniques through information technology, and the forthcoming enlargement of the Union. This increased interconnection raises many health policy issues, including quality and access in cross-border care; information requirements for patients, health professionals and policy-makers; the scope for cooperation on health matters; and how to reconcile national policies with European obligations in general.
