Healthy Entrepreneurs (HE) is a social business enterprise originating from The Netherlands, with activities in several countries in Eastern Africa.

Job Summary

Will be responsible for answering incoming Health and business calls, utilizing company policies and health guidelines to solve client issues, and directing calls to the managerial team, superiors in various departments when necessary.

HE is implementing a telehealth solution: a national Call Center for all VHTs in Uganda. This is a cost-effective and fast way to respond, as it offers VHTs an effective platform for inquiries within the community and provides up to date information, remote assessment and consultations about COVID-19, primary health conditions, and healthy lifestyles. HE’s Call Center provides advice about common infectious conditions including COVID-19, malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea and common cold, but also around non-communicable diseases, nutrition, and healthy lifestyles. Within the telehealth solution, each consultation includes the identification of symptoms and a decision with follow-up actions. The result could be self-management which includes treatment, a follow-up call or referral to a health center or hospital. In case of a suspected COVID-19 case, the district Ministry of Health is informed for further follow-up. Nurses are the first line in the call center and are trained to examine all signs/symptoms via triage, with specific attention to risk stratification and co-morbidity, which is a serious treat in relation to COVID-19. All clients are registered in a digital system, in which follow-up actions can easily be monitored. Various clinicians can be referred to in case further review/assessment is necessary (which the triage will indicate). Based on the triage, a tailored advice will be provided to all clients.
