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.
