Thandile Health Risk Management was established in 2002 as a joint venture between Medexec, Soweto-based First Care as well as East Rand-based Bophelong. The consolidation of our hands-on experience in the evaluation and management of health risk in the private and public sectors has created one of the most knowledgeable service providers in the industry. Through a network of participating doctors, specialists, support staff and clinics, Thandile offers a comprehensive one-stop health risk management service throughout southern Africa.
The company follows an approach of early intervention strategies. We believe that today’s solutions are created for tomorrow’s needs – a philosophy that underscores and expands the “prevention is better than cure” truism.
Thandile’s approach bridges the divides between a company’s HR department, employees who are unwell and the doctors treating them. Few, if any, employers have the knowledge and or medical qualifications to interpret and challenge medical certificates, identify sick leave trends and their root causes, and implement appropriate responses. Thandile’s expertise and processes effectively eliminates the silo effect.
Thandile is a truly South African empowerment company with a Level 2 rating in terms of the DTI scorecard.
