I am pleased to announce MONOC has received official notification that we have been CAMTS accredited! After many months of hard work our flight team and management have successfully achieved this remarkable milestone. The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) is dedicated to improving the quality of patient care and safety of the transport environment for services providing rotorwing, fixed wing and ground transport systems. This is now the fifth national accreditation we have achieved. To our knowledge, this makes MONOC the only entity in the United States, or internationally, to have attained CAAS, CAMTS, ACE, CAAHEP and CECBEMS accreditations!

 

CAMTS first enacted its Accreditation Standards in 1991, which were developed by its member organizations as well as with extensive public comment and input. The Standards are the core element to the CAMTS program, which declares that the highest priorities for medical transport services companies are "patient care and safety of the transport environment". CAMTS accreditation, once granted, lasts for three years, at which time it can be renewed by being reaudited. Preparation for initial accreditation generally takes from four to six months, as the process examines all aspects of operations, from management to medical protocols to flight operations. As of March 29, 2014 there are 165 accredited services of which we are one.

 

As was the case when MONOC attained our CAAS (Commission on the Accreditation of Ambulance Services) in 2004, MONOC is the first in-state provider to be accredited, leading the way in mobile healthcare in New Jersey.

 

Congratulations to the entire MONOC family!
