Icon Oncology Holdings
Since its inception, Icon Oncology Holdings and its subsidiaries, Icon Radiotherapy, Icon Chemotherapy and Icon Managed Care have pioneered the move to value-based care (VBC) in cancer treatment on the African continent.
The argument for value-based care is globally accepted as a necessary alternative to traditional fee for service models. VBC reduces costs, improves outcomes for patients and drives sustainability in the medical industry.
In an environment of escalating healthcare costs that disadvantage the majority of South Africans, many cancer sufferers are still not gaining access to quality cancer treatment fast enough.
Icon Oncology’s provider network, facilities infrastructure and value-based care model bridges the gap between funders and medical practitioners, creating a patient centric environment that enhances access to cancer care. Its proprietary e-Auth® system gives cancer patients real-time access to life-saving treatment.
The Icon Oncology model serves all members of medical schemes in the industry, irrespective of the available benefits of individual funding options.
Icon Oncology is ideally positioned to align the interests of government, medical schemes, oncologists and patients to improve and widen access to care and ensure the long-term sustainability of oncology in South Africa.
Our Guiding Principles
Icon Oncology has a team of nearly 300 people working across South Africa. We are the largest employer of Radiation Therapists and Medical Physicists in the country, and over 80% of South Africa’s private practice oncologists are part of our network.
