Welcome to The Institute of Health Risk Managers

The Institute of Health Risk Managers is an independent training provider specialising in the healthcare industry. The South African healthcare system consists of a public and a private sector. Each sector has the same basic elements – patients, doctors and other healthcare providers and funders. The relationship between each of these players differs for each of the sectors. However, the goal is the same – good patient outcomes with limited resources. The dynamic and evolutionary nature of the healthcare industry, brought about by the increased demand for limited health care resources within the constraints of government’s goal of universal access to quality healthcare for all its citizens has changed the landscape significantly.

Our training, seminars, workshops and weekly news updates are designed to meet the knowledge, skills and industry updates for all working in healthcare. We encourage participation and interaction amongst funders and providers at our events with the aim of achieving better understanding of each other's needs and to achieve the goal of improved patient outcomes within an environment of limited funding. As South Africa progresses on the journey of healthcare reforms the challenge to medical schemes and administrators is to become the most efficient in the industry. Skilling employees has become a business imperative.
