In Chernihiv region, modern call centers have been established in health care institutions of two communities at the same time

Access to health services for residents of the Nizhyn and Bakhmach communities in the Chernihiv region has been improved, in particular, the old-style receptions have been transformed into modern reception rooms and call centers.

With the financial support of the German government, call centers with trained staff and service and communication departments were established in the healthcare facilities. From now on, more than 80,000 community residents will have an effective and convenient algorithm for interacting with their healthcare facilities.

70-95% of patients use remote appointments, according to statistics. Launch of call centers in the Nizhyn Central City Hospital and Bakhmach City Primary Health Care Center is a new level of patient care that significantly accelerates access to all healthcare services, and, therefore, patient recovery. Call centers operate on the principle that “Calling us is the first step to a healthy patient”.

 

 

 “The opening of the call center is great news because the service will make it faster and easier for people to get the healthcare they need. We are always concerned about the health of the residents of our community,” says Olha Shvets, General Director of the Nizhyn Central Hospital.

 

“This is a happy event for our center because it will improve the service and communication between the patient and the doctor. Conditions have been created to increase the availability and efficiency of medical services at the primary level, which in turn will increase the level of patient satisfaction with the facility’s services. Our team is always ready to help,”adds Victoria Petroytis, Director General of Bakhmach Primary Health Care Center. 

 

Particular attention is paid to the training of call center staff. One of its main tasks is to promote general awareness among patients about the availability of healthcare services under the Medical Guarantee Program, which is being expanded on a regular basis.

“We are launching two more call centers together with the communities for patients in the north-east of Ukraine. This project, supported by the German government, is a step towards a patient-centered service delivery model. I am glad that even in this time of war we have the opportunity to improve the services and institutional capacity of hospitals,”emphasizes Dmytro Sherembey, head of the largest patient organization CO “100% Life”, which is a partner of the GIZ project “Special Support Program for Ukraine /EU4ResilientRegions”. 

 

 

The official opening of the call centers is the final stage of the work of the GIZ Ukraine project “Special Support Program for Ukraine/EU4ResilientRegions” to restore infrastructure and improve services and communication in healthcare institutions. As part of the project, a number of construction solutions were developed and implemented for hospitals in Nizhyn and Bakhmach communities of the Chernihiv region: from roof replacement, floor renovation, accessibility, repair of premises to the arrangement of various functional areas. The solution set was designed to meet the needs of a specific healthcare institution. At the expense of the German government, medical furniture, laboratory and rehabilitation equipment were also delivered to the hospitals of two communities in the Chernihiv region, and the installation of solar power stations is underway.

“On behalf of the German government, GIZ provides comprehensive support for the development of health services in communities, including the renovation of health facilities, the purchase of medical and non-medical equipment, and the training of staff. Nizhyn and Bakhmach communities needed support to restore their infrastructure and, in particular, to introduce modern digital solutions to improve services and communications,”said Yulia Gruber, Director of the GIZ project “Special Support Program for Ukraine / EU4ResilientRegions”.
