CAMTS, August 16, 2017 - The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) has released its 6th issue of best practices, publically available as a digital document.

"The highly -experienced professionals of the CAMTS Board of Directors often identify excellent and innovative practices when we review applications and site surveys for accreditation," said CAMTS Executive Director Eileen Frazer. "In publishing our latest issue of best practices, we selected policies and practices that illustrated the high -quality patient care and safety we seek in accreditation. We also focused on areas that are typically cited as deficiencies in our audits, highlighting practices services can adopt to strengthen their programs."

The CAMTS 2017 Best Practices includ es 72 examples, directly attributed to CAMTS -accredited organizations, under the headings of policies, quality management and utilization review, education, safety, and community interface.

These practices address many current issues facing medicaltranspo rtation programs today, such as a drone safety policy, as well as several risk assessment tools, including a medical escort risk assessment and a GAMUT metrics explanation. In addition, the document includes a section devoted to preparing for accreditation , which provides an example from a completed standards compliance tool.
