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 a parent advocate for children with special education needs, or SEN, my family like many in our community tend to be a higher than average user of hospital facilities. However, there is no meaningful information about the quality of care at hospitals, and the gap between the best and worst medical expertise and services at hospitals can be wide. The Zubin Foundation's initiative, HospitalAdvisor, carries with it the promise to make transparent a number of key factors that predict excellence in hospitals, including patient experience. We hope that this effort will help refocus hospitals that operate in an independent and isolated way to focus on quality control, integration, and coordination.
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
