Transparency and measurement are fast-emerging as tools to enable health system sustainability in the wake of economic, epidemiologic, and lifestyle patterns burdening modern-day health systems. Hong Kong’s dual-track health system is experiencing these trends whilst concurrently facing market inefficiencies and an underutilised private health sector. Bupa have recently developed a report, that examines transparency across the domains of finance, quality, and patient experience. The result is a comprehensive, evidence-based analysis, with recommendations for individual stakeholders and a series of action areas to address moving forward. Join us at this breakfast session as we explore the report’s findings, and what they mean for Hong Kong’s health system.
