Our home health care gets called a lot of things. High-quality. Compassionate. And even elite – as in HomeCare Elite. HomeCare Elite is listing of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States compiled annually by ABILITY® Network and DecisionHealth. The review identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, process measure implementation, patient experience, quality improvement and financial performance.
“Improving quality of care and the patient experience continue to underpin a rapidly evolving healthcare environment,” said Christine Lang, Senior Director, Product Management, for ABILITY® Network. “At the same time tracking, measuring and interpreting data that support these efforts is becoming more complex. The 2017 HomeCare Elite winners have demonstrated the highest-quality care in their communities, which is a remarkable achievement. We congratulate Natick Visiting Nurse Association on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”
The HomeCare Elite is the only performance recognition of its kind in the home health profession.
