The Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services
CAAS Accreditation

Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services Accreditation

Community EMS understands that most companies strive for excellence and to exceed the industry standards. We believe there is a difference in striving for excellence and proving that your company actually delivers it. 

Community EMS can proudly state that we have been recognized for our excellence and have been awarded the coveted CAAS accreditation. CAAS accreditation is not easily obtained and few EMS companies are bestowed this honor.   During our 2012 reaccreditation survey, CEMS was found to have zero deficiencies.

From CAAS:

The Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) was established to encourage and promote quality patient care in America's medical transportation system.

CAAS is an independent Commission that established a comprehensive series of standards for the ambulance service industry.

CAAS accreditation signifies that your service has met the "gold standard" determined by the ambulance industry to be essential in a modern emergency medical services provider. These standards often exceed those established by state or local regulation.  The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization. 

The process includes a comprehensive self-assessment and an independent external review of the EMS organization. This independent process provides verification to your Board of Directors, city council, medical community and others that quality care is provided to the community.

National Academies of Emergency Dispatch
ACE Accreditation

National Academies of Emergency Dispatch ACE Accreditation

Parastar Communications Center, a subsidiarity of Community EMS has been awarded the ACE Accreditation for Dispatch from the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch. To obtain ACE accreditation you must meet and/ or exceed twenty robust criteria that are set by the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch. Currently there are 121 Communication Centers throughout the world who have been awarded this accreditation, our subsidiarity is one of them. 

From the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch:

Accredited Centers share a common goal of improving public care and maximizing the efficiency of 911 systems. The National Academies of Emergency Dispatch, through its College of Fellows, has established a high standard of excellence for emergency dispatch, providing the tools to achieve this high standard at both the dispatcher level through Certification, and at the communication center level through the Accreditation Program. 


Certified Billing Coders

Parastar’s Billing Department also falls in line with our standard of excellence. Each billing coder is certified by the National Academy of Ambulance Coding. Our staff are experts at billing, recovering, and working with patients to provide solutions not problems. This results in higher returns and patient satisfaction.

Mobile health initiative's goal: Cut hospital costs, readmissions

Community EMS, a Southfield-based ambulance and consulting company, has begun pilot testing a mobile health initiative to use paramedics and telemedicine to assess the health of chronic disease patients who develop non-emergency health problems.

The pilot is viewed as a way to reduce costly hospital readmissions and unnecessary visits to emergency departments.

"When a patient is discharged from a hospital to home or long-term care facility and they have a chronic illness, many things can trigger a patient being sent back to the hospital," said Greg Beauchemin, CEO of Community EMS.

Despite the cold, CEMS hearts are warm!

As the weather got colder and the snow came down more, CEMS assembled a team of individuals that went out and helped the homeless or those less fortunate who were without heat, water, or food. Coats, hats, gloves, scarves, socks, shoes, pants, blankets, etc. were also handed out. As a result of the publicity of the event, community sup-port and donations of food, clothing, and even firewood poured in from several volunteers.
