KINNECT’s Acute Injury Management Service is designed to help reduce your workers compensation and injury related costs. We achieve this by providing your entire workforce with access to the right level of care and support as soon as a workplace injury occurs.
KINNECT provide an Acute Medical Management Hotline that is available 24 hours / 7 days a week to help manage all your workplace injuries.
Once an injury occurs, managers can simply call the hotline and they will be provided with the appropriate advice on how to best manage the injury. 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 significantly, as many injuries can be appropriately managed without the need for 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 educate the injured worker on the claims process, assist in the completion of all relevant paperwork and lodge the claim through your respective insurer.
KINNECT will provide rehabilitation and return to work services that will support your company in the continued management of the injured worker. Management will include, sourcing suitable duties, formulating of return to work programs, ongoing return to work monitoring, treatment coordination and attendance at relevant medical appointments /reviews.
This model allows KINNECT to work with internal stakeholders i.e. supervisors and health and safety personnel and relevant insurers to implement best practice Injury Management processes, facilitating a quicker return to work for the injured employee (and thus a reduction in associated costs).
