News Description

BIZCOMMUNITY An extensive inquiry into South Africa's health market was recently concluded - the first ever process in the country that involved gathering evidence and then studying the private healthcare market from the perspective of competition and competition law. The investigation ran over five years and included over 43 million individual patient records, 11 million admissions, specifically commissioned studies, written submissions, public hearings and seminars. The investigation focused on hospitals, doctors, and funders. Funders include the medical schemes who purchase healthcare on behalf of members, and the administrators and managed care organisations that medical schemes contract with.
