During a market trip to Germany, Oscar Lindow and Paulina Sarbinowska from Sahlgrenska I.C. visited Klinikum Nürnberg. We shared our experiences regarding international patients, discussed similarities but also the challenges facing us as a consequence of the EU-directive for cross border healthcare. Tanya Porter, head of the International department has a long background within Medical Tourism and has been responsible for developing the international department at the clinic from the very start when it was founded, in 2004.
We also had the pleasure to meet a Krankenkasse and a private insurance company who provided us with valuable information about the German Health Care system in general and aspecially about how german patients go about when they want to seek preplanned care abroad.
We look forward to stay in touch.
