Your health comes first. Patient-focused care.

A basic principle of leading health organizations is placing the patient at the center of the organization. This principle is currently facing great challenges from a changing society. Today, individuals demand more innovative technologies that improve the speed delivery and quality of services. At the same time, the healthcare sector suffers from limited resources with which to deliver an acceptable level of care.

 

We rely on our team.

Ribera Salud provides an excellent working environment for our team to treat patients and achieve improved health outcomes. We provide all the necessary tools, training and personal development for our healthcare professionals, so that they can provide the best experience for our patients.

 

Applying the best practices.

Trust. Responsability. Commitment. Loyalty. Integrity. Soundness are the cornerstones of our organization.

The greatest value

The Ribera Salud group aims to be globally recognised in the health sector for being the healthcare management model that creates the greatest value for citizens, institutions and professionals.

The good reputation

According to the Sociological Research Centre, bribery and corruption is the second largest problem for citizens in our society. These malicious practices cause an increase of inequality between different sectors of the population.

WHAT IS OUR DIRECTION?

We began our journey over fifteen years ago by focusing on innovation, flexibility and best practices in the public healthcare system. During this time, we have developed public-privae partnerships, have been the leader in innovation and have driven change by using the best healthcare practices.

Integrated Care Services

We have developed new management models that utilize existing resources, avoiding duplication and ensuring quality service. Our patients have benefitted from our integration of different levels of healthcare services (primary and specialized healthcare) providing more accessible, complete attention and faster access.

Fast medical acces

Innovation and Progress

With the implementation of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs), we have achieved integrated and efficient medical procedures. These tools enable us to be transparent and agile whe comparing the quality of our care programs. ICTs have improved communications between professionals and patients.

Excellent health results

Patient Focus

We encourage health education, preventive and self-care policies. Our quality procedures allow us to be more decisive, while improving services for our patients. We are the first company in Spain to develop a “Health Portal” which allows us to measure our effectiveness. The site allows us to conduct on line results, and reduce unnecessary primary healthcare visits. Our patients experience early diagnosis of certain diseases in health centers, creating a closer, holistic relationship with the patient.

Better patient satisfaction

Higher Quality and More Efficient Health System

At Ribera Salud, we comprehensively manage the health of our patients in a transparent and results-oriented manner. Our model pursues the most effective use of resources to ensure we achieve the best possible outcomes. We are committed to clinical management, safety and incorporating new techniques of partnering with our patients. At Ribera Salud, we place special emphasis on preventive health and have developed protocols for chronic health conditions.

Efficcient cost management

Our PPP model

The challenges in the Healthcare Industry are global. The most socially advanced countries are putting in place reforms in the heathcare system and these reforms have three common points: more fair -introducing public values-, more sustainable and answering to the high levels of specialization the sector requires.
