Investor Owned Healthcare Organizations


During the last decades the private healthcare sector has highly increased worldwide and Investor Owned Healthcare Organizations play an important role in providing quality care to people. The IOH-SIG is the international network for dialogue, collaboration and benchmarking between Investor Owned Healthcare Organizations in order to promote best practices and a stronger recognition of their participation to public health needs.

Demand for private health services is growing, especially in emergent countries, where the private health sector may offer attractive returns to investors. Lack of information is dragging capital and isolating private healthcare facilities in these countries.
