About this event

Dr. Sophie Chung is the Founder & CEO of Qunomedical, a global digital health platform that provides patients worldwide access to high-quality affordable healthcare.

After the completion of her medical studies in Vienna in 2008, Sophie gathered experience of patient care during her work as a doctor in Australia as well as in her role as Director of Healthcare Strategy at Zocdoc in New York, a digital health startup focussing on appointment bookings.

She also worked for five years as a strategy consultant in the Healthcare Practice at McKinsey & Company in Germany, where her clients included governments, hospitals, health insurers and pharmaceutical companies.

Sophie initially came into direct contact with the complexity of healthcare provision when she accessed healthcare through an NGO in Cambodia. As the daughter of two Cambodian refugees, this experience had a significant impact on her. Through her work in the healthcare sector, Sophie realised that access to healthcare is not just a problem in developing countries, but across the globe. Even in highly developed countries such as the US or Germany, there are people who cannot afford medical treatment, while others must wait months for a necessary medical intervention.

Sophie does not want to simply accept this situation, and founded Qunomedical in 2015 in order to provide patients with an additional option. With Qunomedical, patients can e.g. find information about procedures, doctors, hospitals, pricing, and destinations. Among others, users can obtain quotes from the hospital of their choice directly through the platform.

Based in Berlin, the startup has raised around €2m in funding from top-notch VCs like Project A Ventures, 500 Startups and Kima Ventures.

Please join us for a very exciting evening and interesting insights into the world of HealthTech and digital transformation.
