Episode 27: How a Cameroonian started a Digital Hospital company from the Netherlands
Welcome to episode 27 of Africans Building Africa Podcast!
My name is Amadou Hanne, I am the founder of Africans Building Africa and the host of Africans Building Africa Podcast. In this Episode, I interviewed Patricia Monthe who’s the founder of MedX, a digital hospital.
While in school for her Masters degree, Patricia Monthe wrote a research paper about healthcare in Africa in 2017. After her graduation, we went to work for companies such as Home Deport and Siemens. However, there was something that kept pulling her back to the paper she wrote. With the help of her sister, Patricia went through the journey of self-discovery which led her to quit her job as an executive to start MedX Care.
MedX is an online and mobile health platform integrating care, payment, and privacy to provide innovative solutions to emergent and growth countries. The company has currently over 9,000 care providers and 400 patients as subscribers.
In this episode, we touched on Why she decided to leave her well-paying job to create a digital hospital, How she started, and the challenges she currently faces to get care providers and patients to sign up.
