Charlotte Krychowski, Associate Professor of Strategy at Institut Mines-Telecom Business School and author of the book “Business Models in e-Health” published by Presses des Mines, is quoted in the December 3, 2021 podcast of RFI.
Podcast topic: “Today, the Economy, the Portrait”: Stanislas Niox-Chateau, co-founder of Doctolib.
The podcast explains that although Doctolib, the digital platform for booking medical appointments, has become a major player in the French healthcare sector, its dominant position is now being questioned.
Charlotte Krychowski explains that “It remains very difficult in France to find funding sources, especially in the field of e-health, and the digital economy is subject to specific laws. The more users of the service, the more value the service will have. This is known as the network effect, which is only achieved when a critical mass is reached. From that point on, the company can generate value. It remains very difficult in France to reach this critical mass because of our regulatory framework which is evolving very slowly.”
