Contact Computers is the only distributor for Health Focus products in KZN.

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 of medical management and administration systems, distributing its systems via a national dealer network. The company is owned by its staff, and run by a management team. The company has a significant user base comprising various medical specialties. 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.
