Different Types Of Air Ambulance Credentials And Certifications

Running an air ambulance service does not mean a group of individuals can come together and get things off the ground in a day. It requires strict, legal certification and accreditation prior to commencement. If this is not done, the air ambulance service is not allowed to carry the patients. Here is a deeper look into all of the important types of air ambulance credentials and certifications on offer for these services and what patients should be on the lookout for when it comes to these enterprises.

CAMTS

This is the main accreditation required by the service. This is put in place by the government and CAMTS (Commission on Air Medical Transportation Systems) in a bid to regulate these services at all times. There were many crashes taking place during the 90s, which led to this accreditation coming into place as a mandatory requirement.

The purpose of the accreditation is to test whether the service is capable of owning and running an aircraft for medical purposes. It has to be prepared for medical use, which is different to running an aircraft for regular commercial purposes.

In some states, this is not necessary as a certification, but in many others it is. Make sure to follow up on this.

AMRM

This is known as the "Air Medical Resource Management" accreditation. It is required to ensure the pilots are equipped to handle the aircraft at all times. There are minimum guidelines in place to ensure all of the management staff is up to par with the rules and regulations in place.

This includes all communication specialists, medical directors, physicians, and specialty team members in the unit. Without this, the FAA does not enable the air ambulance service to function.

IS-BAO

The IS-BAO (International Business Aviation Council) was developed by the aviation industry and is a code of best practices designed to help flight departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism.

Reasons To Find Accreditation

What is the purpose for patients to find such accreditation in the first place? What value does it bring?

The value comes in the form of know the professionals on board are trained and up to date with current on goings as set by the FAA and CAMTS.

If the US government does not approve, patients should not be approving either. It is something which is not regarded as being voluntary any longer and most services realize it is a bare minimum to earn the trust of those involved.

Anything less than this is not worth it for patients.

Making sure the air ambulance company is fully covered and has the credentials needed is imperative on the patient's end of things. It ensures the service is allowed to carry out the service and has the ability to carry it out in a professional manner. Not doing this is a risk, which should not be taken in this day and age. Ensure the credentials are up to date and meet the rules and regulations in the state. It is also a good idea to take a deep look at the air medical transport company and if they seem to be a real company or a broker. Real company's will typically be using their own planes that are maintained and repaired in-house. Read more about the AMF services on the Angel MedFlight Blog
