Rehab case management – time to reconsider?

2016 will be a big year for rehabilitation in the claims profession. With the new rehab code revised, lawyers and claims handlers will be encouraged to collaborate even more with case managers and the NHS. PremExtra considers what this could mean for you.

In November 2015, Premex Group and its parent Company ExamWorks Inc announced the acquisition of Argent Rehabilitation, one of the UK’s best known brands in fast growing rehabilitation services marketplace. Over the next few months we will integrate all the services provided by Argent into our current 3d Rehabilitation offering to help our customers benefit from a vastly expanded network of services.  Please contact chris.wheatley@premex.com for more details.

For some, rehabilitation case management may not be a familiar solution in the claims process, but for many solicitors and insurance claims handling professionals it is a vital tool, particularly with more severe injuries.

“Now, with an increasing array of directions and obligations to consider, rehabilitation makes increasingly good sense,” says Jo French. “We’re here to help instructing parties learn as much as possible about what’s on offer from the combined 3d Rehabilitation and Argent offering."

3d and Argent has a combined specialist team of catastrophic injury case managers who are here to support those who have suffered injuries that will change their lives forever.

“By understanding the wider social and lifestyle impacts of catastrophic injuries our case managers have become expert at supporting injured people, their families and dependants,” adds Jo French. “They are able to simultaneously manage a client’s physical, psychological and occupational rehabilitation, all within a clinical framework, using care pathways and the latest evidence base to safely achieve the best possible outcomes.”

With Argent’s established case management network, instructing parties will have their pick of the UK’s most experienced professionals. “We will also be combining the very best aspects of our two companies’ technology platforms so; your client’s file reviews, diagnostics, case management, return-to-work programs and related services will be organised and delivered in the most efficient way possible. We have also made sure that space is built into our model so that regular audits, peer reviews and end-user feedback keep the services improving all the time.”
