CEO & Medical Director, Incorporated Health
Dr Tony Lopez qualified as a medical doctor in London in 1988 and after gaining MRCP and FRCR working at leading London academic institutions, embarked upon a twenty-five year career in diagnostic and interventional radiology including twenty years in part time private practice in London and Surrey.
Past achievements include co-founding Medical Pages, one of the first medical website companies in the United Kingdom, and The Imaging Clinic Limited, a company specialising in working in partnership with private network hospitals and co-investing private consultants. This company, now named Incorporated Health Limited, has created several successful joint ventures with some of the biggest names in the private healthcare industry, in partnership with consultants.
He has seen major changes in the stance of particularly medical insurers and private hospitals. There remain tensions between all members of the value chain from patients through private medical facilities and private consultants to the medical insurers. Costs need to be reduced to make private healthcare more affordable and there remains plenty of opportunity to achieve this with new ways of working. If the private network hospitals fail to collaborate with high net worth and innovative doctors, they risk their business collapsing!
