Healthcare Advisory in Africa: KPMG’s Role
Globally, the healthcare sector is facing enormous, complex challenges around both development and maintenance. In Africa, the sector is undergoing major policy, system and infrastructural changes.
In these unprecedented times, healthcare leaders require insight and guidance from an advisor they can trust. That is why leading organisations turn to KPMG’s healthcare consulting services. With deep industry experience, insight and technical support, KPMG firms are among the leaders in delivering a broad range of audit, tax and advisory services to meet the unique needs of healthcare policy-makers, providers and payers.
What we do
KPMG’s healthcare practice has a dedicated team of 202 partners and 2,745 practitioners globally. As healthcare systems confront similar issues and challenges, our professionals are able to share their experiences across the globe to help generate new approaches. Growing economic pressures and rising healthcare costs are leading to the adoption of major reforms and transformations in the healthcare systems across the world, and Africa is no exception. By 2030, the global healthcare market is expected to grow by six percent annually, to reach nearly US$20 trillion.
It is becoming increasingly evident that healthcare systems around the developed world are facing many similar challenges – higher quality for less cost. Although healthcare is primarily organised within national geographies, the market trends are truly global. Changing demographic profiles, an aging population, new technologies, pharmaceutical developments and rising consumer demands, all create unprecedented fiscal pressures. Our vision is “to become the most eminent healthcare professional services firm on the planet, helping our clients and people successfully address the global challenge to provide affordable healthcare at the highest possible quality to citizens and patients alike.”
Our key focus:
‘’Board Grip’’ – Helping to ensure Boards have the right skills, capabilities and information to lead effectively, increase confidence in systems and processes, and improve data accuracy to streamline the costs of regulation and compliance.
Care System Redesign – Working across regional health ecosystems to redesign patient pathways and shift the provision of care to more appropriate settings.
Health IT – Helping to leverage enabling technologies and enhance performance through systems selection, implementation project management, controls assessments, business process improvement and change management service.
Quality and Margin Improvement – Helping organisations to adopt best practice operational models, processes and cost management capabilities in order to enhance both service quality and value for money.
Strategy, Transactions and Financing – Ensuring value is delivered through mergers, acquisitions, divestments, joint ventures, shared services and outsourcing arrangements.
KPMG is committed to the Healthcare Sector, understand its issues and bring this understanding to our assignments.
