To achieve accreditation by CAMTS, medical transport programs must adhere to CAMTS’ rigorous patient care and safety of transport standards, developed and continually improved by a board of highly skilled and experienced medical and medical transportation professionals. Adherence to these standards, which are above and beyond regulatory requirements, assures program compliance to remain accredited by CAMTS. The commission is dedicated to improving the quality of patient care and safety of the transport environment for services providing rotor wing, fixed wing and ground transport systems.
