WHO IS PPO SERVE

Who we are

PPO Serve or Professional Provider Organisation Services is a shared services hub for clinicians with a vision to create transformed, commercial healthcare systems that compete on the right basis to make healthcare more affordable for the South African population.

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.
