T-Systems and Pfortner join forces to protect patient information

We are privileged to be working with T-Systems, the technology arm of Deutsche Telekom, having established a strategic alliance that will focus primarily in the African healthcare space.


Our SCP solution ( www.pfortner.co.za/scp ) ensures that patient information is shared between doctors, suppliers and hospitals without compromising the privacy or integrity of the data. In light of recent data privacy blunders and in line with KING IV, this is an invaluable solution for both the public and private healthcare sector.


At Pfortner we believe in partnering for success, and in the Healthcare domain there’s no better partner than T-Systems. The alliance, which was formally announced on the 1st of June, will see our two companies join forces to bring secure communications solutions to the African healthcare services sector.

In the future, T-Systems will be the go-to-market vehicle for Pfortner’s secure healthcare communication solutions and also have key input into product development. We see our team leveraging the experience and insights gained by T-Systems who serve this sector across the globe.


This new relationship has been well received by the market with our first private healthcare customer going live on the 1st of July 2017. We also participated at the Africa Health Exhibition 2017 ( www.africahealthexhibition.com ) where T-Systems was a silver sponsor.
