Dr. Sophie Chung is Founder & CEO of Qunomedical, a digital health platform that provides its clients access to affordable high-quality healthcare worldwide. 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 since it was founded in 2015.

In this episode, we discuss with Sophie why healthcare is lacking innovation compared to other industries, the opportunities that exist for entrepreneurs, and how better legislation can foster the digital transformation of healthcare.
