CADS Hershey 2017
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.
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
This 5-6 hour course will be 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.

This year a portion of the proceeds from Bash ticket sales goes to an important cause – The Code Green Campaign. The mission of the Code Green Campaign is to bring awareness to the high rates of mental health issues in first responders and reduce them; to eliminate the stigma that prevents people from admitting these issues and asking for help; and to educate first responders on self and peer care and to advocate for systemic change in how mental health issues are addressed by first responder agencies.
