At last years Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Accreditation Commission (NEMTAC) Conference, 360 Quality Care and Transport President, Stephen Newman, rolled out his new Priority Medical Transport (PMT) model to the nations most significant medical transportation operators in the industry. Since then the company has been busy re-working the tools necessary to service those who need help and stand to gain the most through a new paradigm in how health providers view transport.
PMT is designed to ensure that participants have access to routine and preventative care, benefit from higher health care outcomes, and mitigate against costly ambulance bills and emergency room services. For those struggling with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, COPD, or asthma, or those whose families are working or live out of town, PMT is now recognized as a valuable low-cost alternative resource.
Newman explained that 360’s Priority Medical Transport program was created for specific healthcare partners who are dedicated in attending to the intricacies of chronic, acute and catastrophic patient care. For such partners, who might include, but are not limited to: hospitals, skilled nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, chronic care facilities, surgical centers, and dialysis centers.
