Hong Kong’s healthcare system is dominated by the public sector. The private sector is small and functions at close to capacity. Patients, however, do not always have the relevant information available to them to enable them to make informed choices about the selection of healthcare providers.

The Hong Kong government has stated its support for the enhancement of the city’s medical innovation and healthcare policy to meet continuing demand for healthcare services not only from the Hong Kong population, but also from visitors coming to the city to seek medical care. As healthcare systems move to being more patient-centered in their service delivery – patients need appropriate data with which to navigate a complex system and make life-determining choices, often at a very stressful time in their lives.

The Harvard Global Health Institute’s Professor Ashish Jha will present compelling data supporting how further transparency in healthcare outcomes from hospitals and providers not only benefits patients but also the healthcare system as a whole.

He will be joined in a panel discussion by both a former Secretary for Food and Health who has been at the heart of policy formulation, and the senior manager of a private hospital who also chairs the Hong Kong Private Hospitals Association.

The ensuing discussion will center on the importance of outcome transparency for patients in Hong Kong, and address how the existing system should adapt to becoming more patient-centered.
