Hospital-wide improvement of telephone accessibility in the VUmc in Amsterdam
Data and figures by programme participation of the VUmc’s in Holland.
The VUmc is an academic hospital in Amsterdam, affiliated to the Free University of Amsterdam. The hospital has more than 8000 employees and 733 beds.
Telephone accessibility urgently needed to be improved
The standard was to answer the phone within two minutes. In 2016, departments that met this standard dropped to 58.2%. This resulted in lower patient and staff satisfaction.
The goal was to improve telephone accessibility in all outpatient departments. This was done to improve the health mission statement: “Patients are welcome and we promise to be available“.
Research on a call-back system showed that 63.1% of customers prefer to be called back when there is a queue on the phone. Aurora teleQ is an innovative phone system that offers this possibility. Therefore, teleQ could be a solution to improve the telephone system.
Method of analysis in the VUmc
To measure the impact of the solution and thus patient and staff satisfaction, interviews were conducted in three departments. Patients were approached personally, resulting in 100 interviews.
Staff who worked at the hospital for more than one month and made at least 50 phone calls were contacted with a questionnaire. This resulted in 88 responses.
A pilot project took place in three departments of the hospital: gastrointestinal & liver diseases, internal medicine and surgery. The staff of these departments were informed about the teleQ functionality. Shortly afterwards, the staff of all outpatient departments were willing to participate in the programme, as telephone accessibility was a frequent problem.

“Aurora teleQ is an improvement”
The quality of healthcare at the VUmc has been improved by the introduction of teleQ. patients and employees are more satisfied and the efficiency of the whole hospital has increased. VUmc is still profiting from the benefits of teleQ, so think about a call back system too. Good luck!
