LifeMed Alaska Maintains Accreditation with Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems

ANCHORAGE—LifeMed Alaska has maintained accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems or CAMTS. The announcement comes after site inspections, thorough evaluation of LifeMed programs, and public comment. A CAMTS-accredited medical transport service demonstrates to its employees and to the public that it cares about quality of patient care and safety and is committed to doing things right.

CAMTS is a voluntary, peer review process. The Commission offers a program of voluntary evaluation of compliance with accreditation standards demonstrating the ability to deliver service of a specific quality. The Commission believes that the two highest priorities of an air medical or ground inter-facility transport service are patient care and safety of the transport environment. Programs are awarded accreditation based on substantial compliance with accreditation standards 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.
