In May 2016 she launched HospitalAdvisor, a transformative patient-centred platform designed to empower patients, improve safety and raise the quality of care in Hong Kong's public and private hospitals.

As consumers, every decision we make - there is information about it all. We make decisions on what hotel to go to. We make decisions on which school our children go to. Why hasn’t anyone touched information on hospitals? As I reviewed how I make hospital decisions - we rely entirely on what one doctor says. All I wanted was credible, easy-to-understand, independent information. It’s not just a doctor that needs to keep us healthy, it’s an institution.”
