MediSwitch started in 1993 when QEDI of Comparex Africa (now Business Connexion) merged with Bytes MediSwitch. The company took another leap forward in 2018 when Altron TMT (Pty) Ltd acquired MediSwitch and merged it with Med-e-Mass and MedeServe to form Altron HealthTech.

Today, MediSwitch is a proud division of Altron HealthTech and serves its clients with the full backing of the Altron Group.

Altron HealthTech’s MediSwitch has pioneered healthcare technologies since the day we were established. We pioneered Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) in healthcare in 1993, and we were the first company to offer online transactions to healthcare professionals in 1999. We further revolutionized the industry when we introduced SwitchOn to the market. SwitchOn is an advanced claims management solution that makes claim switching faster, easier, and better than ever.

Altron HealthTech’s MediSwitch is a seasoned player in the industry with close to 30 years experience in electronic transacting between healthcare professionals and funders. We are a leading electronic claims delivery company in South Africa, with an active client base of over 14,000 practices. On average, we receive more than 280,000 patient claims daily and process over 200,000 online claims per day.
