Meet Our Team

Health Focus, founded in 1988, is a South African developer of optometry and medical management and administration systems, distributing its systems via a dealer network and operating in seven African countries.

The company is owned and run by its management team. It has a significant user base comprising optometrists, clinics, family practitioners and various medical specialties and is viewed as one of South Africa’s most innovative optometry medical accounting and financial software developers and prides itself on its products and service range.

Successful Health Focus Eminance installations are running in South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Democratic Republic of Congo and Eswatini.

Installations differ according to countries, with programs adopted for their use and 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 mining companies installing Eminance at their onsite primary healthcare clinics.

Health Focus grew from a company that was founded in 1988 with a single goal to make medical and optometry offices run more efficiently. Company founders designed a solution to accommodate practitioner and staff workflow with easy-to-use, affordable technology that adapts to the provider’s workflow and is accessible from anywhere.

Health Focus’ Research and Development team are dedicated to continual development of our products to ensure the needs of the optometry and medical professions 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.

Health Focus is a healthcare practice management company that combines the strength of the indispensable human touch with computerised automation. We provide solutions that streamline the operations of medical and optometry practices and improve patient care.

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 - such as managed care groups and medical aid schemes.

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.
