European Commission Study on ‘Cooperation in cross-border Healthcare’


The European Commission published  a new study (March 2018) on  ‘Cooperation in cross-border Healthcare’ containing a paragraph on Fraud and Fraud mitigation in cross-border healthcare (p. 174-192), with the participation of Paul Vincke, Managing Director EHFCN.

The Study “Cross-border cooperation: capitalising on existing initiatives for cooperation in cross-border regions” published by the Commission today maps EU-funded cooperation projects for the period 2007 to 2017 in EU and EEA countries and Switzerland; provides insight into opportunities and challenges for cross-border cooperation in healthcare; and offers guidance to local and regional authorities and other parties who are interested in starting a health-related cooperation project. The Study’s findings will provide input into the report on the operation of the Cross-border Healthcare (CBHC) Directive due to be published later in the year.
