The Ground Air Medical Quality Transport (GAMUT) Quality Improvement Collaborative is a database for transport teams to track, report, and analyze their performance on transport-specific quality metrics by comparing it to other programs. According to the GAMUT Benchmarking, Air Methods’ clinicians outperform the industry in six key metrics, including first-attempt tracheal tube placement success.
Air Methods mitigates clinical risk through a variety of monitoring and reporting tools.
Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) includes a voluntary audit every three years to establish that we meet and exceed industry-wide standards. These standards address not only the quality of patient care, education of medical personnel and medical equipment, but also operational and safety concerns. Achieving CAMTS accreditation is a mark of excellence for a critical care transport program. The Air Methods’ standard is for all CBS programs to earn CAMTS after one year of service.
