The critical care transport community faces increasing pressures to operate safely in competitive and cost-conscious healthcare markets while providing excellence in patient care. A core belief driving the development of The Center for Medical Transport Research is that global connections formed to analyze the effectiveness, efficiency and equity in critical care transport systems can impact the quality and safety of patient care across various payer systems and diverse public policy environments. The Center will serve as a secure and neutral platform for scientific collaboration with resources for data management and research project development.

Starting on Saturday, May 31, TWO sweet rides will be departing Santa Monica, Calif., enroute to beautiful Hilton Head, S.C., on a cross-country expedition to demonstrate our industry's commitment to safety for our crews and the patients we serve. At various stops along the way, host locations will hold a ˝ day safety event with participation from local air medical and their EMS counterparts invited to attend. Make plans to attend one of the "safety stops" in your region, and/or hit the road to join the safety drive for a portion of the trip across the country. The more, the better - all in the spirit of SAFETY.

The goal of the Great American Safety Drive is to raise at least $100,000 for the MedEvac Foundation International, earmarked specifically to support safety research, education and programs such as the Survivors Network and Vision Zero.

TCMTR collaborates with SURVIVORS NETWORK in study entitled: SURVIVORS’ PERCEPTIONS OF RECOVERY FOLLOWING AN AIR MEDICAL ACCIDENT

The purpose of this pilot study is to conduct the a focus group for survivors of HEMS crashes. In this study the goal is to add to the scant body of literature that currently exists about the experiences of survivors and their efforts to successfully reintegrate into both personal and professional life. The Focus Group was held in Denver, CO in the fall of 2012. Findings to be published soon.
