Admit it. As a busy healthcare professional focusing on the needs of your patients, you may not always give as much attention as you’d like to managing your business. You probably feel guilty about this. But you’re not alone. Many - maybe most - of your peers find themselves in the same predicament.
Ongoing, sustainable success requires an in-depth understanding of every aspect of your business. It also demands that you keep your finger on the pulse of industry trends and innovations to stay ahead of your competitors and better serve your patients.
This requires up-to-date knowledge of your area of medical expertise as well as of how to provide an efficient service offering that’s backed by streamlined systems and processes. It takes time and mental energy to juggle all these responsibilities. Wouldn’t it be great if you had someone you could rely on to share this burden?
That’s where Vizibilii comes in.

A range of services honed for local practitioners
Since its inception, Vizibiliti’s range of expert services has been refined and developed to help maximise efficiency and success across all areas of your practice. These services include:
Encouraged by the success she was able to achieve for clients in this field, Alison soon broadened her focus, utilising her expertise and experience to become a practice management specialist in the wider healthcare sector.
A highly qualified professional with extensive practice management know-how, Alison began her career nursing at Groote Schuur hospital, later obtaining a B.Comm degree in Business Management and Industrial Psychology, as well as an MBA from UCT in Advanced Leadership, Mastering Strategic Change (Cum Laude) and Advanced Corporate Finance.
Alison then spent several years as a corporate management consultant for Ernst & Young, also gaining invaluable experience in specialist practice management, as well as establishing and running a highly successful recruitment business.
This wealth of experience, coupled with Alison’s laser focus on the unique requirements of healthcare professionals has earned Vizibiliti a reputation as the go-to one-stop-shop for those seeking to get the very best out of their practices.
"Working on various projects with Alison over the past two years, made me wonder why she tackled this perplexing Health Care industry. The answer lies in that Alison strives to do what is right in a field where so many professionals are unaware that they are doing what is wrong when it comes to applying sound business principles in managing a practice. Our synergy originates from a common understanding of the knowledge gap in the “practice management” training of Health providers and how it causes unnecessary hardship, unrealistic financial expectations, poor decision making and ultimately, disappointing career outcomes. Alison demonstrates remarkable tenacity when she explains and guides her client into following structured, ethical and proven business principles."
The Graduate Institute of Optometry
“Alison is highly respected by all her know her in the Ophthalmic profession and I believe that her advice has been invaluable to the professional bodies in the industry. I would recommend Alison to assist in all matters relating to healthcare, not only the Optometric field, as she has gained extensive knowledge and experience over the time that I have known her. ”
Executive Chairman, Genop Healthcare
“Over the last 24 months I have had the opportunity to discuss a number of industry issues and work on projects with Alison. Alison has always been highly professional and proficient. Her insights into the profession and particular issues have revealed in-depth research and an innate ability to get ‘under the skin’ of the profession and issues. Solutions are well thought out, professionally presented and implementable. Alison’s passion and dedication to the task has been a pleasure to observe. ”
Senior Specialist, HRS Optical Assessing
“Vizibiliti has done a number of projects for Iso Leso Optics Ltd from conducting a strategic review workshop, market surveys and building and rolling out an on line education portal. Alison is commendable in providing a cohesive solution from diverse sources. Iso Leso has benefitted from the innovation that Vizibiliti has demonstrated. Through these processes Alison Maytham has been professional and delivered on the projects both timeously and on budget. We continue to work with Alison who has a wide knowledge of the industry and many aspects that make up optical delivery in the health care market. ”
Iso Leso Contracts Director
“In the year I have known Alison a lot of things changed in my practice. If you saw my practice a year ago you would not believe how good it looks now. She also made me understand the value of a good accountant and monthly reports on the practice. If all this just happened in a year, I can’t wait to work with her and see where she takes the practices in a few more years.”
“Alison helped me with the marketing aspect of the business as well as the everyday setup of the business decisions around practice administration, recruitment of suitable staff, a billing systems and she introduced me to credible professionals who could help me. She completely transformed the practice into a very successful business venture.”
Dr Christelle Van der Watt
The Shoulder Practice

I would not hesitate to refer her to any colleague starting up a practice."
