Benefits of CADS Certification

 

 

Getting field providers to consistently produce high quality patient care reports (PCRs) is one of the top concerns mentioned time and again by EMS chiefs, ambulance company executives and other industry senior leaders.  If EMS documentation isn’t up to par, the consequences can be far-reaching. Poor PCRs can expose providers to liability in court, cost the ambulance service money in lost revenues, and create compliance problems in the event of an audit.

These are just a few of the reasons why NAAC has developed the CADS course. CADS is the only professional designation in the EMS industry to solely focus on documentation skills. And let’s face it – those are skills that providers just don’t get enough of in EMT or paramedic school. 

Completing the CADS Course will:

  • Facilitate high quality patient care
  • Reduce provider liability
  • Enhance the quality of the clinical narrative
  • Improve billing accuracy
  • Boost agency compliance

The course is presented in a dynamic, interactive fashion with engaging student interactions to keep your attention and reinforce key concepts. And, best of all, the content was developed by the attorneys and consultants of Page, Wolfberg & Wirth – The National EMS Industry Law Firm®​.  This unique opportunity gives field providers the chance to learn about documentation from leading industry experts and take away practical skills that can be used on every transport.
