									Benefits of CAMTS Certification for Air Ambulance Services

As you shop around for an air ambulance service, you may be confused
about all the details. How do you know which air ambulance service is
best? If you are looking for air ambulance transportation that is high-
quality and lives up to standards, then look for a service that is CAMTS
certified.

What does CAMTS mean? The initials CAMTS stand for Commission on
Accreditation of Medical Transport Services. Companies who are
accredited by CAMTS receive several benefits. Although the company must
incur some cost and time commitment for the certification, the company
who receives such an honor will appreciate the time and money invested.

The air ambulance service that is certified by CAMTS may have lowered
insurance premiums due to the quality commitment and high safety
standards. Local, state, and federal government may recognize the CAMTS
certified air ambulance company. Such certified air ambulance services
may be granted contracts only available to certified companies. The
credibility attained by CAMTS certification is prestigious among other
medical transport companies and the public.

Customers will note the CAMTS certification and know that they are
securing a flight with a dependable air ambulance service. The
commitment to excellence seen only by CAMTS certified companies will
provide confidence to the customer. During stressful times, it can be
hard to know that you are making the right decision about medical issues,
but choosing a CAMTS certified air ambulance will make the decision
easier.

Because no federal or state regulations exist to standardize many of the
practices associated with air ambulance transport, it is difficult to
determine which companies are best and which companies simply will do the
job. CAMTS certified companies are required to meet minimum standards
that indicate the company is providing excellent service that focuses on
patient comfort and safety.

The company interested in certification begins by critically assessing
their own organization. This helps the air ambulance service note their
strengths and weaknesses. In time, inspectors come to the site of the
service to assess the company and their practices. With this amount of
scrutiny, it is no doubt that the company has the opportunity to perfect
any problems.

Measurements are taken in regards to communication, administration,
education, and maintenance. If the air ambulance company fails to meet
the minimum requirements, they will not receive the CAMTS certification.
While companies who do not have the certification may, in fact, meet the
standards, there is no way to judge this fact. Customers selecting only
CAMTS certified air ambulance services can be certain that such minimum
standards are met. Periodically, certified companies are re-evaluated to
ensure quality.
Certification from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport
Services offers several benefits for the air ambulance service. Among
prestige and lower insurance premiums, the company will get more
business. Customers in search of a high-quality air ambulance service
will be able to easily separate the CAMTS certified companies from the
rest of the pack. CAMTS certification is a win-win situation for both
air ambulance companies and potential customers of the service.
