Cross-border Health Care Lower Austria - South Bohemia


The focal point of the cooperation between Lower Austria and Southern Bohemia is the local population’s need for rapid access to high-calibre health care close to where they live. "Healthacross in Practice" is working on a practical implementation of cross-border provision of health care, concerning itself with questions which can emerge as part of the daily exchange of patients between Lower Austria and the Czech Republic. The objective is for a specific quantity of Czech patients to be treated in the Landesklinikum Waldviertel Gmünd clinic. A subsequent evaluation is planned for analysing the processes and also for identifying problem areas and paths to solutions.
