KINNECT’s Acute Injury Management Service is designed to help reduce your workers compensation and injury related costs. We achieve this by providing your workforce with access to experienced care and support immediately following a workplace injury.
KINNECT provide an Acute Medical Management Work Injury Hotline that is available 24 hours / 7 days a week to help all your workplace injuries.
Once an injury occurs, managers can simply call the hotline and they will be provided with the appropriate injury management advice to stabilize the injured area. If medical treatment is required, KINNECT will coordinate an appointment for the injured worker. KINNECT have over 200 affiliated medical clinics that assist us in the delivery of acute injury management services across Australia.
All workplace injuries are accurately recorded as soon as they are logged via the hotline. This allows for immediate reporting to relevant company representatives. Access to our Injury Hotline can help to reduce compensation claims; many injuries can be appropriately managed without submitting a claim.
Following the injured worker receiving the appropriate medical treatment and management, KINNECT will manage the claims process for you.
Should an employee wish to lodge a Worker’s Compensation Claim following an injury, KINNECT will assist to ensure compliance. This includes explaining the claims process, assisting in paperwork completion and lodging the claim through your respective insurer.
KINNECT will provide rehabilitation and return to work services that will support you in the continued management of the injured worker. Management will include sourcing suitable duties, formulating return to work programs, ongoing monitoring, treatment coordination and attendance at relevant medical appointments.
This model allows KINNECT to work with supervisors, health and safety personnel and relevant insurers, to implement best practice injury management. Consequently facilitating a quicker return to work for the injured employee (and thus a reduction in associated costs).
