EagleMed Accredited for Industry Standards.
Since 2000, EagleMed has maintained its accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Services (CAMTS). This voluntary process is the air medical industries standard that parallels the Joint Commission accreditation for hospitals.
The voluntary CAMTS accreditation shows EagleMed has undergone the audit process every three years to establish itself as meeting or exceeding the industry wide standards. CAMTS standards not only address patient care, education of medical personnel and medical equipment, but further address operational and safety concerns of pilots, crew members, drivers, dispatchers and management at all levels.
EagleMed's standards are the core element to the CAMTS program, which declares that the highest priorities for medical transport services companies are "patient care and safety of the transport environment". The CAMTS process examines all aspects of operations, from management to medical protocols to flight operations.
EagleMed LLC strives to consistently provide safe, expert, and trusted rotary and fixed wing and critical care air medical transport and ground transport services to the patients and communities we serve. This is accomplished by utilizing state-of-the-art medically configured aircraft and ambulances that are staffed by highly-trained and caring professionals that practice safety as the watchword in everything they do. And further enhanced by making CAMTS a focus for our EagleMed employees and staff, and supporting CAMTS stance on patient care and transport safety.
EagleMed is cited as a 'best practice' protocol in CAMTS' own Safety and Quality in Medical Transport Systems / Creating an Effective Culture for the creation and application of their Just Culture program.
