KiT - Coordination of individual participation - needs assessment and service provision as if from a single source
In an international comparison, the quality and quantity of services for participation in Germany are comparatively high. People with a corresponding need have a high chance of being able to participate regularly and sustainably in working life and society again after receiving such services. However, problems arise in the German rehabilitation system where individual participation services are no longer satisfactory to achieve this goal in the individual case. Case management is required in order to provide this "one-stop service".
The aim of the KiT model project is therefore to develop and comprehensively test individual case-oriented coordination across service (provider) boundaries and thus a rehabilitation strategy as if from a single source for people with a complex need for health support and participation.
With individual support and advice for affected people from fixed contact persons (case managers), services are provided in the understanding of a rehabilitation strategy as if from a single source. Pension insurance case managers act as professional guides in the health and rehab system, focusing on the interests and wishes of those affected. This considerably strengthens their position vis-à-vis rehab providers and also service providers.
In the first phase of the project, the implementation of case management is prepared and the agents involved are qualified as case managers. In the second phase, the intervention will be implemented in four model regions of different target groups with complex problems in accordance with the objective of "one-stop services". The focus will be on different access routes and indications. In the third phase, the transfer of the products created, such as the training curriculum, instruments and counseling paths, into the routine organization of the pension insurance will take place on the basis of the findings that are continuously compiled on a supraregional basis.
