CAMTS STANDARDS AND POLICIES

CAMTS is a peer review organization dedicated to improving patient care and transport safety by providing a dynamic accreditation process through the development of standards, education, and services that support our vision. We do this through:

  • Honest Self Assessment
  • Ethical Business Practices
  • Being Patient and Safety Focused
  • Continuous Quality Improvement
  • Transparency in the Accreditation Process

Accreditation Standards originally developed through an extensive public comment process and published in 1991, revised every 2-3 years, the Accreditation Standards address issues of patient care and safety in fixed and rotorwing services as well as ground critical care, ALS/BLS and Medical Escort Services. Each standard is supported by measurable criteria. Accreditation Standards are periodically revised to reflect the dynamic, changing environment of medical transport with considerable input from all disciplines of the medical profession.
