In order to provide the opportunity for Ugandans to access high-quality private healthcare and ensure Human Resource Manager choose the best healthcare scheme on behalf of their employees, International Air Ambulance (IAA) has held a breakfast dialogue with Human Resource Managers to discuss the current healthcare trends and medical specialist capacity under the theme “Making IAA Synergies work for you”.
“With over 17 years in the Ugandan market, we have developed the largest network of health care providers and facilities in the Country. Our healthcare scheme is serviced by our own Hospital (IHK) and 16 IMC clinic’s network strategically spread across the country plus over 180 affiliate clinics” said Herbert Mukooza, the IAA General Manager while speaking at the dialogue.
Mukooza said, IAA healthcare is the leading Health Management Organization (HMOs) in Uganda and having it as your insurance scheme will enable employees to have access to an integrated healthcare system.
This means that they have access to many healthcare specialists who communicate and collaborate to provide the best possible treatment.
Mukooza notes that the IAA healthcare insurance means countrywide access to high-quality services and facilities thus one is buying more than just healthcare insurance but also access to specialist doctors/treatment with the expertise to handle any health complications or risks.
“Currently we hold 50% of the market share on medical insurance revenue with a 12% growth over the past 2years,” said Mukooza.
Andre Ackerman, the CEO of the International Medical Group said IMG is 90% owned and managed by CIEL Healthcare Limited whose primary objective is to provide the best healthcare service and to always stay at the forefront of bringing medical technology & expertise to their areas of operation.
