Centro Medico Santagostino

The only chain of private clinics in Italy
offering high quality services at affordable prices.

Challenge

The Italian National Health Service (SSN) suffers from a lack of specialised services and waiting times are currently extremely long. In addition services from the private sector are often very expensive.

Intervention

  • CMS has a chain of clinics offering the primary medical services:
    • In areas covered or not so well covered by the SSN
    • High quality offering at prices that are far lower than the market standard
    • Using an innovative model of managing patients during the whole diagnostic and treatment cycle.

Impact

  • Wide availability of health services: pricing, at €60 per visit, has not been changed since 2009.
  • Waiting times for a visit do not exceed 3 days, a saving of 80 days compared to the public sector.
  • High level of satisfaction among patients (complaints stand at 0.18%).
