CAMTS Site Visit: Public Notice
We are pleased to announce that Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) will be conducting a site visit at On Call International’s headquarters in Salem, New Hampshire, USA on 10/7/2021. The purpose of the site visit is to evaluate On Call’s transportation program compliance with nationally established medical transportation standards. On Call is currently CAMTS accredited, and is undergoing this compliance process with CAMTS to renew its accreditation through 2024.
What is CAMTS and Why is Accreditation So Important?
CAMTS (i.e. Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems) is an independent, non-profit commission comprised of representatives from twenty-one separate organizations, each representing some component of air and ground medical transport. They accredited the first air medical service in 1991. CAMTS’s site surveyors are professionals who actively work in the transport industry, have an average of more than ten years of experience in the specialty, and have completed an extensive site surveyor-training course. The organization’s standards are supported by measurable criteria and revised every two to three years, with considerable input from all disciplines of professionals in the transport industry.
CAMTS standards are recognized worldwide as the most stringent safety, training, and medical standards in the industry and serve as an indicator of excellence for state, federal, and local government agencies as well as private and general public agencies. CAMTS accreditation is a licensing requirement for certain categories of medical transport programs in many states and by the U.S. Department of Defense for civilian contracts (voluntary for commercial medical transports). In short: this accreditation is a seal of quality for medical air transport programs and indicates trust, credibility, and dependability.
