About us

Clientelis is a private company that was founded in Johannesburg to address a need amongst Life Sciences and other healthcare-related companies to better reach and engage with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and patients throughout the African continent in a cost-effective manner.

We have adopted the tagline connecting the healthcare dots which has resonance for us for a number of reasons:

1. Connectivity:

The insight that we learn from this simple puzzle is that sometimes we have to think outside the box in order to solve a problem. At Clientelis we pride ourselves on our ability to think outside the box and in fact the need to be able to innovate quickly is why we built our flexible digital platform.

The dots in this insight category might represent data points or some strategic insight. In Africa, where we are based and do most of our work, finding good data to base insights, understanding and ultimately decisions on, is extremely difficult and often requires a knowledgeable specialist on your side.
