Healthcare Industry Updates and Innovation Conference

Healthcare innovation in South Africa  

The imminent release of the findings of the Competition Commission health-market inquiry and the consequent drive to uniform tariffs, as well as the imminent  National Health Insurance NHI rollout, continued consolidation of medical aids and finally the inextricable rise in medial inflation, culminate in a perfect storm for the sector.  Against this backdrop of healthcare reform, medical technology companies are focused more than ever on products that deliver cheaper, faster, more efficient patient care. How do re-imbursement models need to change to facilitate disruptive innovation?

Topics:

  • The NHI rollout and its impact on the healthcare landscape;

  • Healthcare innovation in South Africa: hospitals, medical schemes, primary care markets;

  • Private, public partnerships: private care involvement in the NHI;

  • Unpacking the pharma-care landscape: technology and biotechnology infrastructure, the pharmaceutical value chain, access to world-class generics and vaccinations;

  • Innovation in health financing and health delivery;

  • Opportunities through blockchain: healthcare on the blockchain means a whole lot more than streamlined hospital visits;

  • Venture capital and innovation: what is the state of the healthcare start-up arena? What funding is available? What role does VC and PE play?;

  • Costs and operating models;

  • Innovation in medical devices and other technology: against the backdrop of healthcare reform, medical technology companies are focused more than ever on products that deliver cheaper, faster, more efficient patient care. How do re-imbursement models need to change to facilitate disruptive innovation?
