The Hospital Association of South Africa (HASA) is the representative body for the majority of private hospitals in South Africa. HASA members include Netcare, Life Healthcare, Mediclinic and the National Hospital Network.
Their annual conference and exhibition took place at The Forum, The Campus in Bryanston, Johannesburg in October 2018. The theme was “Thinking Forward – Collaborate. Enhance. Evolve.”
Among those who have benefitted from the conference have been policymakers and regulators at national and regional level, academics, hospital and nursing services managers in the public and private sector, non-governmental organisations, clinical and quality control managers, medical staff, medical device and service suppliers, consumer champions, and healthcare media.
During this time of urgent and accelerated change in healthcare, the conference featured a number of international and local speakers with policy, regulatory and clinical expertise who, together, explored how through forward thinking and thinking forward, we can collaborate to enhance healthcare and evolve new systems and approaches into the future.
The HWSETA participated in the conference as both a delegate and an exhibitor.
