Trans-care Ambulance
Topic: Ambulance and Wheelchair Transportation in a Changing Healthcare
Environment
Ms. Sandlin will review the history of Emergency Medical Services and the changing times
as EMS providers collaborate with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to provide
high-quality services to Medicare patients. She will define private and municipal EMS
providers and will discuss the differences between EMT, paramedic, and wheelchair driver
functions to assist case managers in determining the most appropriate transportation
services for their patient’s needs. In addition, Ms. Sandlin will describe payor
responsibility based upon medical necessity, pick-up, and destination facility.
Tamara Sandlin is a BSN registered nurse of 16 years who specialized in ICU and CCU.
During that time, she developed several medical device patents and a passion for
business development, vendor management and process improvement. Tamara’s keen
interest in the development of ACO’s and other healthcare changes and the changing role
of EMS providers led her to Trans-Care Ambulance. With her forward-thinking business
sense and patient care experience, she is currently developing new processes and
directing the operations for this rapidly growing ambulance service.
