“Healthcare is a team sport, currently being played by individuals“
Who we are
PPO Serve or Professional Provider Organisation Services is a shared services hub for clinicians. Our goal is to create transformed healthcare systems for people through helping the establishment of Integrated Clinical Consortia™
We are supported by the Foundation of Professional Development (FPD).
What we do
We support clinicians in creating, implementing and managing Integrated Clinical Consortia™. We do this through a complete support infrastructure including a tailor-made toolkit and Intelligent Care System.
Why are we doing it
Building Integrated Clinical Consortia™ is the means to stop fragmented care in the South African Healthcare system. These teams look after the care of entire communities transforming the private healthcare system into one that can treat more people at a lower cost.
How we are doing it
Current international experience shows us that there’s a better way. PPO Serve offers a solution that delivers quality care because the clinician is in control. It operates on four principles, supported by intelligent technology and management tools:
- Population health care: Defined patient populations are linked to accountable healthcare systems, comprising of integrated clinical teams that are tailored to provide patients with best quality care.
- Integrated clinical teams are effective coordinated working clinician teams. Teamwork brings back support and a structured and flexible work environment.
- Individualised care plans: Patient centered care where care each patient’s care plan is personalised for their needs and preferences. They are designed by autonomous clinicians using evidence to achieve quality outcomes.
- Value based contracting: Funding in a Value Contract replaces ‘fee for service’ reimbursement where clinicians must work and earn alone. Medical Schemes pay clinicians in teams based not on the quantity of services provided but instead on patient satisfaction and outcomes.
These principles are enabled by an Intelligent Care System and turnkey management and operational support. The new system leads to better care for populations, more satisfactory experience for individuals and for clinicians and is more affordable.
