Marion County Ambulance District personnel recently attended CADS training and is hoping to make it mandatory for all employees.

That training and other upcoming training events were discussed during last week’s Marion County Ambulance District meeting.

Administrative staff attended the Certified Ambulance Documentation Specialists (CADS) course in Columbia, which, according to Chief John Nemes, provided “a lot of good information”.

The training, he added, is the first offered by the National Association of Ambulance Compliance that is specifically geared for EMTs and paramedics.

“It is also appropriate for EMS QA/QI (quality assurance and quality improvement) personnel, supervisors/managers, compliance officers, billers and anyone else involved in emergency medical services clinical care or any aspect of the ambulance service revenue cycle.”
