About Us

During the treatment and self-care of the disease process, patients may feel anxious and worry due to lack of knowledge. Hospital Authority (HA) aims to provide comprehensive patient-related and disease-based information to patients through the Smart Patient Website (SPW), a one-stop patient information hub with disease information, self-care tips, preparation for common procedures as well as community resources, so as to improve their self-care skills and strengthen their ability on disease management. Since its launch from 2009, the website has received much support from patient members and public, with a cumulative hit rate of over 30 Mn in Dec 2016 and was awarded as one of the Ten Meritorious Websites in 2010.

The website strives to enhance its accessibility for different target groups. For ethnic minority groups, a new webpage containing common chronic disease information, such as cancer, chronic diseases, and other diseases, showing in 8 languages (Thai, Bahasa Indonesia, Tagalog, Nepali, Punjabi (Indian), Punjabi (Pakistani), Hindi, Urdu), was released in September 2016. Besides, SPW is enhancing its design layouts with web accessibility features from Q1 2017. Two mobile applications, namely “Fall Prevention” and “Finding Patient Groups”, were released and received much praise from patients and carers.

To live out the essence of patient empowerment and community partnership, the birth of SPW is the concerted effort of patient groups, community partners, healthcare professionals of public hospitals who provide valuable comment and information to this website. We strive for providing useful health care information to patients, your suggestion and advice are welcome.

Thank you for visiting SPW!
