About Kinetic Health Case Management

Welcome to Kinetic Health Case Management

If you have been advised to look for a Case Manager to assist with your rehabilitation needs, it is understandable to feel daunted and not know where to begin. Most people will not be aware of what a Case Manager is, let alone how one could help you.

The impact that an injury or illness has is unique to each individual and will affect every family differently. We understand that healthcare services can be difficult to navigate and can leave you feeling confused and frustrated.  When you appoint a Case Manager from Kinetic Health, our priority is to get to know you, your family and answer any questions you may have in relation to your healthcare. Your Case Manager is your healthcare advocate, putting you firmly at the centre of your rehabilitation. We help you to navigate healthcare services and support you when challenges seem insurmountable.

Examples of some of the support we can offer include:

  • Accessing NHS and statutory services
  • Providing evidence of need for private care
  • Liaising with your employer or school/college/university
  • Managing of a therapy programme
  • Sourcing alternative appropriate accommodation
  • Organising specialist equipment or housing adaptations
  • Support to recruit a package of care worker/buddy/personal assistant
  • Working with Court of Protection and Deputies if required

We have experience with many types of adult’s and children’s cases, including:

  • Complex Orthopaedic Injuries
  • Amputees
  • Poly-Trauma
  • Chronic Pain Conditions
  • Occupational Rehabilitation
  • Psychological Injuries
  • Brain Injuries
  • Auto-immune diseases

Kinetic Health Case Management can help you realise your full potential following catastrophic injury

What are the next steps?

Please get in touch with us for an informal conversation to see if one of our Case Managers is the right person to support you. We are happy to meet you to discuss your case, either virtually or face to face (depending on location), with no obligation. If we are unable to provide you with the support you require, we will advise you of the best way forward. 

If you decide to work with us at Kinetic Health, the Case Manager you have chosen will arrange to meet you as soon as possible to undertake an Immediate Needs Assessment (INA), this may be in Hospital, at your home or another place of your choosing. An INA is our chance to understand you, your family and effects of the injury. Following the INA we will provide recommendations that can then be actioned by your Case Manager. In some circumstances, an INA will not be needed and we can proceed directly with active Case Management.

Remember, keeping you at the centre of rehabilitation is very important, so your Case Manager will make regular contact with you and will keep you well informed to ensure your input and wishes are recognised.

As part of your rehabilitation, you may need to have quick access to our network of treatment providers. These are healthcare professionals that we know do a good job and uphold the same values as us.


Our Treatment Network includes:

  • Physiotherapists
  • Private Consultants
  • Speech & Language Therapists
  • Psychological Services
  • Neuro-psychological Assessments
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Specialist Personal Trainers
  • Personal Carers
  • Orthotists/Prosthetists
  • Clinical Specialists
  • Wheelchair/Special Seating Services
  • Specialist Inpatient Rehab Centres
  • And more…..

The most important piece of advice we can offer you, if you are reading this and considering appointing a Case Manager is; that it is normal to feel overwhelmed by this process, however, an informal chat with us will help greatly with reassuring you and explaining the next steps. Please do get in touch.

Immediate Needs Assessment

Immediate Needs Assessment takes place at the earliest opportunity following injury, which allows us to make early contact with statutory services and plan for appropriate rehabilitation interventions.

Kinetic Health prefers to carry out Needs Assessments face to face with the injured client, however, we can offer a virtual or telephonic assessment during times of extenuating circumstances.

A Case Manager's support, may include:
  • Accessing NHS and statutory services
  • Providing evidence of need for private care
  • Liaising with your employer or school/college/university
  • Managing of a therapy programme
  • Sourcing alternative appropriate accommodation
  • Organising specialist equipment or housing adaptations
  • Support to recruit a package of care worker/buddy/personal assistant

We have a large network of Health Care Professionals that we are able to utilise. This means we can rapidly refer our clients to the most appropriate care and support at the earliest opportunity.

If you have preferred rehabilitation providers in place, Kinetic Health can manage the referral and treating process on your behalf, by liaising with these services, as part of active Case Management

Read a Case Study from Kinetic Health Case Management

26-year-old male agricultural worker – hit from behind and trapped under heavy farming equipment

Sustained the following injuries:

  • Fracture of transverse process of L5 vertebra
  • Right talus fracture
  • Right ankle dislocation and fracture of navicular (closed).
  • Right 2nd metatarsal fracture
  • Multiple fractures of the pelvis reduced surgically by means of Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF). Metalwork remains in situ.
  • Soft tissue compression injury resulting in compartment syndrome and necessitating two fasciotomy incisions to the right lower leg. Complications of infection have occurred in respect of one of the incision sights.

NHS care did not lead to a functional, weight bearing right lower limb for this client due to ongoing complications; including infection and compartment syndrome. Greg was instructed as Specialist Rehabilitation Case Manager to address all care and rehabilitation needs. Liaison and opinions were sought to determine the feasibility of any further rehabilitation potential. Funds were sought and provided for 3 specialist private opinions, nerve conduction studies and 2 independent prosthetic clinic assessments after which, it was decided that elective amputation was the best route for this young man who wants to get back to show jumping. The wait for surgery was 18 months but following negotiation with the NHS, this was reduced to 6 months on the basis of “high risk dormant infection in leg”

Case Management Interventions:

  • Discharge to temporary council accommodation while funding was agreed and liability not decided upon for private tenancy/ social services referral made in case funding fell through
  • Sourcing of suitable bungalow and package of care to suit client’s needs
  • Attending ESA and PIP assessments with clients – securing enhanced rate/ ring fencing interim living payments with formation of rehab trust fund with support from solicitor
  • Demonstrated needs for and had funds approved for psychological support due to deteriorating mental health
  • Liaising with client’s family overseas
  • Referral to centre for enablement for state funded light weight wheelchair
  • All housing and equipment planning for client following elective amputation.
  • Referral to specialist prehab personal trainer to address deconditioning
  • Referral to a stop smoking service
  • Secured funds for rehabilitation and prosthetic provision following amputation at specialist inpatient centre near Leeds
  • Vocational funds currently being sought for a stud farming qualification to ensure future employment

Outlook

The future is bright for this young man when he adjusts to a prosthetic limb. He is determined to ride a horse again, be able to run and find a new career in the stud farming industry. Greg will remain involved in managing his care and liaising with all private and NHS treating services until the client is independent and had fulfilled his rehabilitation potential.
