Life Link III has received full accreditation from the US Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) for both its rotor wing and fixed wing services, the company announced on 1 May.

Life Link III has been a CAMTS accredited programme since 2007 with reaccreditation required every three years. The most recent accreditation will run to April 2022, and extends across the entire Life Link III programme including a fixed wing base and eight helicopter bases located in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The CAMTS is dedicated to improving the quality of patient care and safety of the transport environment for services providing rotor wing, fixed wing and ground transport systems. Air medical programmes that apply for the CAMTS accreditation are held to a rigorous set of guidelines and safety standards that span all aspects of an air medical flight programme including medical direction, crew education, communications, safety, documentation and quality improvement.

Life Link III is a non-profit consortium of ten healthcare systems spread throughout the upper Midwest, transporting critically ill patients by helicopter. It also serves as the exclusive air medical transport service provider for five neonatal intensive care unit teams throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.
