Haley Mundt recently joined ATF Medical as a Rehab Coordinator, collaborating with clients, manufacturers, and ATF Medical’s Assistive Technology Professionals (ATPs) and Occupational Therapists (OTs) to help injured workers receive the medical equipment they need. Haley, who graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in biology, has worked in the durable medical equipment industry for over four years.
In her previous job as a manager for an Ohio distributor of durable medical equipment and orthotics and prosthetic devices, Haley streamlined internal processes to improve outcomes. She was happy to see that ATF Medical already had systems in place along with a shared commitment to delivering equipment to injured workers as soon as possible.
Frequently working to fulfill mobility needs, she observed that workers with recent, complex injuries are not at the greatest points in their lives. In the beginning, injured workers are struggling, unhappy, and unable to manage activities of daily living. ATF Medical helps them transition from this difficult starting point to a place where they are mobile and happier.
Right now, she’s helping a woman replace a broken wheelchair. “We’re working as fast as we can to get her a new power chair so she can get out of the house, go to the park and do her grocery shopping,” Haley said. “Being able to help someone get from that low point to where they can get around is life-changing,” said Haley. “I’m passionate about helping a patient get to the end result. “It is so exciting to see the impact the right equipment has on a person’s life.”
And she’s not alone in her desire to help ATF Medical’s workers’ compensation patients. “Every day I reach out to different people for contacts at manufacturers, to get recommendations–all kinds of things. People here are willing to help – the ATPs, my supervisor, technicians – they’re all ready to jump on a call to educate a patient or explain something to an insurance company.”
The swift response to her questions was a bit surprising. Haley wasn’t sure that she could get answers right away since everyone works remotely, but she said, “There is great teamwork.”
If you haven’t had a chance to work with Haley yet, hopefully, she’ll help with one of your cases soon. Meanwhile, shoot her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and say hello.
