When crisis hits, you must make decisions on a moment’s notice, without much time to analyze your choices or waste time tracking down necessary information. At Elite Medical Transport, we are committed to positively impact the lives of our patients, employees and the communities we serve by providing the right transportation to the right patient, every time. We rise above the rest because patient care and safety are our first priority, and every team member strives to continuously improve the level of care and service we provide to our clients.
While we acknowledge and respect the accomplishments of our competitors, we aren’t ashamed to highlight how we stand out. Below are the six ways Elite Medical Transport stands out from the crowd.
1. GPS Tracked Fleet
Fleetmatics GPS tracking technology allows Elite Medical Transport to dispatch the closest available transport vehicle to the site of an emergency. With GPS, our drivers get to our patients quickly and ensure while keeping safety a top priority. Fleet tracking technology provides real-time monitoring of vehicle speed, location, and the posted speed limit of the driver’s position on a computer or mobile device. Tracking technology posts all hard-driving events, including hard stops, rapid accelerations, or sharp cornering, as well as speed limit violations. Incorporating fleet tracking technology into our vehicles is just one way that Elite Medical Transport demonstrates our mission of providing the safest and most efficient service possible for our patients.
2. Individual Driver Safety Scorecards
Each of our drivers maintains an up-to-date safety scorecard. At the beginning of each shift, drivers check in, then follow up by recording any incidents or issues of concern. At the end of each shift, a final report is submitted, allowing us to track each individual driver’s history and helping us manage driving behavior and accurately track incidents. Safely scorecards also enable our drivers to measure their own actions so they can maintain professionalism and improve their performance.
3. Medical Director with a fellowship in EMS
Not many medical transport companies can depend on a Medical Director with a far-reaching understanding of emergency medicine. With a fellowship in EMS, our Medical Director has the specific emergency medicine knowledge to provide us with information and guidance we can depend on. By answering all manner of medical and healthcare-related questions and offering insights that impact every aspect of our business, from hiring team members to meeting with patients and case managers, our Medical Director allows everyone at Elite Medical Transport to work continuously to improve the lives of our patients and the communities we serve.
4. Multiple Modes of Transportation
Trains, planes and automobiles... okay, 2 out of the 3. Elite Medical Transport’s fleet of aircraft and ambulances are the epitome of quality and efficiency. Our ground and air operations include multiple sizes of planes and buses capable of transporting one patient or 20…all while staying up-to-date with latest medical transportation technology.
5. Multiple Types of Ambulances
From regular buses to the bus created for the children’s hospital, as well as our large buses used during Hurricane Harvey, we have ambulances of all sizes to meet every emergency transportation situation, from simple pickups to complicated patient transfers. Safety is our top priority, and we perform regular maintenance to ensure that everything is running optimally. Our state-of-the-art, custom-built fleet features top-quality medical equipment and the latest technology, ensuring that patients receive quality care that matches any medical facility setting.
6. 24/7 Health Benefits Coordinator
Navigating health benefits can be one of the most stressful aspects of selecting a transport company. Many people don’t really understand what their health insurance policies actually cover – and what they don’t cover. We know how nerve-wracking it can be to choose an ambulance service, which is why we have a health benefits coordinator on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our knowledgeable health care coordinators can answer all your questions and ensure you have a clear understanding of your coverage and out-of-pocket expenses.
We know that determining which medical transport provider is right for you involves weighing several different demands, from the type of transportation needed to insurance coverage to patient safety and security. At Elite Medical Transport, our entire team strives to provide comprehensive and responsive medical transportation designed to fit the individual needs of every single client. That’s why we encourage you to compare us to your current transport company and to whether your provider can meet the level of service we provide.
