What we do: Get Health (Pty) Ltd offers services that are similar to that of a private general practitioner (doctor) but much more affordable. This is made possible by the business model which takes a different perspective on managing a social enterprise. The clinic operates on a fee-for-service model where patients are first assessed by health coaches from the local community before they are forwarded through to Get Health’s healthcare professionals. Consultation prices start from R165-R200 and covers everything from everyday ailments to chronic and lifestyle disease management.
Ownership & Management: Get Health co-founder and CEO, Trevor Brewer together with his business partner, Gary Hill, have sought to tackle the imposing healthcare sector in South Africa by making private sector quality healthcare more accessible to the country’s majority. The team of clinical associates are qualified and trained to assess and examine all customers primary health care needs and thereafter prescribe the most appropriate treatment.
Key financial indicators: Not provided. Get Health’s market is the lower middle class segment and this population includes approximately 23 million South Africans. The healthcare sector in South Africa is certainly very complex with high barriers to entry. This complexity comes in the form of strict regulations and regulatory bodies. In South Africa many people only wait until they are very sick to access healthcare.
Track record: The business model is built off the core vision of providing access to high quality primary healthcare at an affordable price. This is done using a unique delivery model through a growing network of clinics on a fee for service basis.
