International Air Ambulance Alliance – fixed wing (IAAA)
The IAAA is an international alliance that was established to raise the professional standards of fixed wing air ambulance providers, while also creating business transparency for insurers, medical assistance companies and individual payers of air ambulance services.
The IAAA is a 'not for profit' organization that supports the specific needs of fixed wing operators and that also associates itself with advocacy industry groups and other professional bodies internationally, for the collective benefit of its members.
Membership to the alliance is a commitment that you want to be recognized as a company that operates with professionalism and integrity, while supporting the delivery of patient care. The companies that meet the Membership criteria, will not only be required to maintain the agreed standards, but agree to be accountable to the alliance, to ensure that the required standards are maintained.
From an insurer and medical assistance perspective; as soon as you choose to work with an air ambulance provider who is an IAAA member, it will instantly minimize the due diligence and risk assessment required and therefore provides additional peace of mind when choosing such a member. Further, it will also ensure that you know exactly who is managing your patient, while ensuring transparency and quality of service is in place.
The IAAA is a growing international network of air ambulance providers, along with insurers and medical assistance companies, that together, are committed to raising the standards of the air ambulance, fixed-wing industry.
