The paper presents a review of the transformation of social, legal and health care of the sick which will result from the recent Directive 2011/24/EU of the European Parliament on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare. The authors highlight the role played by the hospital through an analysis of hospital assistance to foreign persons. This leads to a project proposal that aims to enable direct routes for cross-border treatment, both within and external to the EU, and to enhance the excellence of the Lazio Region hospitals in attracting foreign patients and resources to the Regional Health Service.

Keywords: Cross-border, international health, global health, vision, welfare.
