BROADENED HORIZON


Air Methods’ takeover of Bayflite changed things for the better, according to Turner. This isn’t just a company line; he cites tangible reasons why Bayflite and its clients have benefited from being run by America’s largest AMS provider.


“We had been very successful as an AMS that followed the legacy ‘this is the way we’ve always done it’ hospital model, but at the same time we were isolated from the rest of the air medical industry,” Turner said. “Now that we’ve transitioned to Air Methods, we’re with a


company that is leading change in the air medical business. The depth of resources that they have committed to training, education, and safety – we had no idea that we were lacking these things until we got access to them.”


Among Air Methods’ resources that Bayflite is now tapping into are complete H135 simulators for pilots; high-fidelity clinical simulators for medical staff; and safety expertise that has allowed Bayflite to implement an FAA-approved Level 5 safety management system


(SMS). “This level of SMS is very similar to SMSs used by Delta and other commercial airlines,” he said. “We’re the only air medical provider that has achieved Level 5 SMS.”


Since becoming a part of Air Methods, Bayflite also has enhanced its operational controls to improve flight safety. This emphasis on safety now governs everything it does, including Bayflite’s return to flight on Sept.13 after Hurricane Irma had blown past.
