It's Official: CME is Accredited by: Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS)

by Joey 21. November 2014

Boca Raton, FL, November 20, 2014--Commercial Medical Escorts Inc. (CME) is among a very small elite group of medical escort services to received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Services (CAMTS). As of October 29, 2014 CME is one of three medical escort programs to complete this process by demonstrating overall high quality of service consistent with the elements of accreditation standards and the professional judgment of the board.
 
Blake Yturralde, CEO/President said, "I cannot express how proud I am of the entire team at Commercial Medical Escorts. We would have never achieved this recognition without the help of everyone on staff."
 
Accreditation distinguishes this medical escort program from many other medical escort operators by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
 
Status as an accredited organization means Commercial Medical Escorts has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by CAMTS. Less than 175 air medical or ground inter-facility transport service organizations across the United States are accredited by CAMTS. Not all air medical transport service seeks accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
 
"We believe our patients deserve the best," stated Blake Yturralde, CEO/President of Commercial Medical Escorts. "When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that CAMTS, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility, process and procedures. It means we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible."
 
Working towards the CAMTS accreditation was a two year preparation process that included a comprehensive review of the company’s policies and procedures, on-site surveys, sell assessment tools, and evaluation of operation procedures. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
 
"Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide," said Blake Yturralde.
 
The entire team at CME has vast knowledge and expertise in the industry. CME has taken medical transportation to the next level. CME has a natural talent when it comes to dealing with the public in a service industry. We have built a sturdy foundation upon basic principles of integrity, great service, teamwork, and patient care. CME defines everything one can ask for when choosing a medical escort provider.

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.
 
Originally developed through an extensive public comment process and published in 1991, revised every 2-3 years, the Accreditation Standards address issues of patient care and safety in fixed and rotary wing services as well as ground inter-facility services providing critical care transports. Each standard is supported by measurable criteria to measure a program's level of quality.
