Our training is of an excellent standard.
The Institute of Practice Management was formed to cater for
a specific need in the medical and optometric markets. The
Institutes' Practice Management Training Workshops are highly
recommended and will be useful to any medical or optometric
practice, irrespective of the software installed at that practice.
Practice managers are taught the skills of
running an effective practice, reducing costly overheads and
making accurate practice decisions. Emphasis is placed on
running your practice like a business.
Health Focus is a South African developer

The company is viewed as one of South Africa’s most
innovative medical accounting and financial software developers
and prides itself on its products and service range.
In addition, it has an infrastructure which
allows it to operate throughout the African Continent and
the United Arab Emirates. Successful Health Focus installations
and programs are running in a number of countries, including
Botswana, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho,
Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Swaziland
and Tanzania. Installations differ according to countries,
with programs adopted for their use. Installations range from
single and multiple practices - like Namibia, where we have
a very significant share of the market; through to clinics
and hospitals in Central Africa. A further drive is being
made into African countries with the collaboration of the
International SOS clinic group who have chosen Health Focus
programs for use in their clinics.
Health Focus has a large Research and Development
division, dedicated to ongoing development on our products
to ensure the needs of the medical profession are met. Through
ongoing R&D we continue to bring new solutions to the
complex maze of medical management problems. This has allowed
us to extend our products over the past few decades into specialist
areas, transforming the company into the largest supplier
of optometry management programs in the country. The company
is committed to ongoing development.
Our development team is geared to evaluate,
design and implement custom designed systems for large groups,
medical aids or other funders. Specialist teams, headed by
our Development Director ensure that standards are maintained
and that customized systems fill the required needs. This
philosophy has allowed us to become leaders in selected clinical
management fields, with some of the most innovative and larger
groups opting for our software solutions.
The company works in conjunction with many
IPA’s and take guidelines from these professional bodies.
The guidelines from the Independent Practitioners Associations,
in turn, allow our users to make a valued decision in terms
of system usage and effectiveness. Keeping in touch with interested
parties ensures that we constantly review better methods,
and provide them in the form of free updates to our users.
