Sophie’s mission is to fundamentally transform how patients access and experience healthcare globally through the use of smart technology.
After earning her MD degree from the Medical University of Vienna in 2008, Sophie first came into contact with the complex issues involved in providing people with access to healthcare whilst working for an NGO in Cambodia. Especially being a child of Cambodian refugees, this experience left a lasting impression on Sophie.
Sophie gained first hand experience in treating patients as a doctor in Australia and serving as Director of Healthcare Strategy at Zocdoc in New York, a healthcare technology startup focused on doctor discovery and appointment booking. She was also a Strategy Consultant for McKinsey & Company’s Healthcare Practice in Germany where she worked with government, hospital, health insurance and pharmaceutical industry clients. Sophie has completed and presented academic stem cell research in areas of Cardiology and Diabetes as well as given keynote presentations on academic research and consumerism in healthcare.
While working in the healthcare industry, Sophie understood that access to healthcare is not a third-world problem but a global one. Even in countries like the United States, many patients do not have access to healthcare because they cannot afford it. Others have to wait months for a procedure in their own country. Sophie founded Junomedical in 2015 to provide an additional option to patients who may have run out of options.
Gero co-founded Junomedical because he feels strongly about the current shortcomings of our healthcare system. His mission is to enable patients around the world to benefit from first-class yet affordable treatment, independent of where he or she lives.
Gero graduated with a Political Science and History degree from the University of Cologne and University College London. Before co-founding Junomedical, Gero introduced Drivy, the European peer-to-peer carsharing leader, to the German market. He also spent 6 years at Google in London, where he focused on strategic partnerships and was specifically working on deals with transportation, commerce and mobile companies in order to bring beautiful products to the European markets.
Through his work at Google, Gero built his passion for smart technology. He is Junomedical’s mastermind when it comes to collecting and processing large amount of information. His goal is to make the lives of patients easier when it comes to healthcare by enabling swift access to relevant information through Junomedical.
We work for you. On our website, we will only show you hospitals which we have carefully and individually selected, based on our strict quality standards. This way, you don’t have to browse through a massive amount of information in order to find the best hospital for you or your loved ones.
We make it easy for you to search for top clinics and hospitals which perform any treatment you’re looking for; we’ll give you an overview of how much you can expect to pay and the destinations you can travel to. If you find a hospital or clinic you like, you can request a free quote and you’ll receive a personalized treatment plan along with the price. We’ll be there with you throughout every step of your journey; during your research, the booking process, your hospital visit and your recuperation period.
With Junomedical, you can be sure that you’ll get the best quality at the most affordable prices.
We’re an independent company that works for you, not the hospitals. We only show you the hospitals that we’ve carefully hand-selected based on strict quality criteria, so that you don’t have to browse through massive amounts of information in order to find the best hospital for your treatment.
Patient satisfaction is our top priority and we intend to prove that to you. All of our partner clinics and hospitals have received accreditations from the Joint Commission International (JCI) or have the highest national accreditation. Consultants at JCI-accredited institutions are the most skilled and experienced in the industry.
We work exclusively with hospitals that are highly experienced in dealing with international patients, and which have English-speaking staff, translators and high customer- satisfaction ratings.
A group of engineers, doctors, patient managers, and lawyers from 10 nationalities, speaking 12 languages. All unified by the mission to transform how patients access and experience healthcare. That’s the team Dr. Sophie Chung has built in the heart of Berlin around Junomedical.
