"TEN4Health – Citizens Services for Borderless Healthcare in the European Union: Practical Solutions"
2 April 2009, 9:30 – 13:00 h in Luxembourg
Initiated by leading public health insurance providers, TEN4Health contributes towards improved healthcare provision for mobile European Union citizens. The workshop is organised by the TEN4Health project which is funded by the European Commission. The TEN4Health project contributes towards improved healthcare provision for mobile European Union citizens. The practical solutions to be presented at the workshop include two operational examples from hospitals providing the service to tourists in skiing resorts in Austria, another one at the North Sea coast in the Netherlands and the operation of this service solution in hospitals in the Czech Republic. The service solutions allow health care providers to reliably and online determine that a patient is covered by health insurance and rapidly receive reimbursement through online billing processes being an integral part of the service package. In a further presentation the EHIC Portal “AOK Europa” – a web portal solution offered by German hospitals for healthcare provision to foreigners from all over the world will be presented.
The TEN4Health workshop at Med-e-Tel is addressed to all interested in realising an integrated European health services market, in sharing visions, experience and opportunities for cooperation. It is aimed at government executives, policy decision makers, EU officials, representatives from healthcare organisations, healthcare professionals, industry and other healthcare stakeholders.
