EP. 46 From Denmark to the US. Dr. Monica Bolbjerg is confident in her vision to change how patients engage with their physicians.
Laurie McGraw is speaking with Inspiring Woman Dr. Monica Bolbjerg, Chairman, CEO and Founder of Qure4u. Dr. Bolbjerg is a doctor, an entrepreneur, and a digital health pioneer.
As a young physician, Dr. Bolbjerg noticed the lack of tools available to engage with and help patients beyond episodic, in-person encounters. That experience ignited her passion to create patient engagement and virtual care solutions that improve patient outcomes and experience while also helping providers drive efficiency.
Dr. Bolbjerg launched one of the world’s first patient portals in 2001 in Denmark. Focused on building ever-better tools to enhance the doctor-patient relationship, she developed the Qure4u platform and has since traveled the world advocating new innovations aimed at benefiting both the practice of medicine and the patient journey with tools that, to date, have been used internationally by more than 15 million patients.
As the Co-Founder and CEO of Qure4u, Dr. Bolbjerg is committed to continuing to revolutionize the delivery of patient-centric care. Qure4u’s MyCarePlan is a holistic patient journey and virtual care platform that arms patients with a Digital Health Key designed to give them simple and convenient access to care, from patient self-scheduling to remote patient monitoring and everything in between. The platform is trusted by providers and loved by patients.
One of the few female physician tech founders, Dr. Bolbjerg has won multiple innovation prizes and been featured as a speaker at the Health Innovation Think Tank and other leading health innovation forums. Qure4u was recently recognized as a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave: Virtual Care Platforms For Digital Health, Q1 2021” report by Forrester Research. The company was also recognized as one of the MedikaLife Top 50 Most Impactful Tech Innovators for Digital Healthcare in 2021 and won the 2020 athenahealth Client Feedback Award.
