HospitalAdvisor is an example of a Hong Kong social enterprise using technology for public good. This shows the growing trend in Hong Kong of social innovation and technology. I hope that patients across Hong Kong will support this initiative.
As patients, we only go into a hospital if it is a serious medical matter. And yet, we know so little about hospital treatment, so it’s difficult for a patient to know which hospital is right for them. We rely almost entirely on what a doctor may suggest and although the doctor may make a good suggestion, patients have to be engaged to ensure the best possible outcomes. HospitalAdvior should be used as an additional tool and does not replace your doctor
I/The patient was aware of the hospital and all medical costs of my/the patient's hospital care before I/the patient paid for my hospital medical treatment
My son was misdiagnosed with flesh-eating bacteria and was recommended to transfer to Adventist with surgery, as the doctors said he is likely to die if he is not operated on immediately. I transferred him to Queen Mary at the end and he was then diagnosed with a superficial under-skin infection and was discharged without operation in a few days.
