Topical
concerns for medical schemes and practitioners, namely budgeting for COVID, the
pandemic progression and the Certificate of Need respectively, will be addressed
in an IHRM-hosted webinar by Prof Roseanne Harris, Adjunct Professor in the
School of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Wits University, and well-known
health sector lawyer, Elsabe Klinck, this Thursday, 26 August, from 09h00 to
12h00.*

Aspects to
be covered by Prof Harris, who is president-elect of the International Actuarial
Society and Health Policy Actuary at Discovery Health, will also include benefit
design for 2022 and beyond, the vaccine programme and vaccine efficacy.

Elsabe
Klinck, CEO of EKA, is expected to delve into aspects of the National Health
Act’s controversial Certificate of Need of particular concern to medical
practitioners.

Published in
the
Government Gazette for comment in
June 2021, the proposed legislation is expected to have a significant impact on
doctor practices. Klinck will share her insights on this prospect and the
far-reaching implications it could have for the health sector at large.
