The HoNCAB project is a timely initiative that strives to take advantage of the interval between the adoption of the Directive 2011/24/EU and its definitive application in the MSs. This is a delicate period in that many MSs may chose to apply either a more favourable approach or a more restrictive and budget conscious approach when transposing the Directive into National legislation. The chosen strategy hinges greatly on available information and this is where the HoNCAB project can fill the gap. Namely, by making available some preliminary but "real" data on the impact of patient mobility and by fine-tuning the methods of classification of the tariffs and the related techniques for comparison. Furthermore, the HoNCAB project aims to provide a framework for the launch of a pilot hospital network which will be quite extensive in its initial form and that will be designed to grow over time. Such a network will allow the participating hospitals to have a practical experience of the opportunities and critical issues of cross-border care and to share problems and solutions with other MS.
