NVNA and Hospice named as one of the Top 100 agencies in country – again!
Each fall for the past 11 years, the HomeCare Elite representing the best performing home care agencies in the country are identified after analysis of statistics, metrics and performance measures . And for the past 11 years, NVNA and Hospice has been named to this prestigious group. But this year, like the last two, NVNA and Hospice has gone even further and been named to the very Top 100 in the country!
HomeCare Elite is a market leading analysis, performed by DecisionHealth and ABILITY Network, to examine the overall performance of all home health agencies in the country. This year, a total of 9,406 agencies were reviewed on the basis of quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience, quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. With 2,353 agencies selected for the Top 25% in the country, rankings are further calculated to identify the Top 100 and Top 500. NVNA and Hospice has been named to the Top 25% every year – one of only 110 agencies nation wide to do so – with a three-peat in the Top 100 and previously, three years in the Top 500.
As ABILITY and DecisionHealth state, excellence in healthcare—including outcomes of care, the patient experience, and the use of best practices—is garnering more attention with the growth of transparency initiatives and the focus on developing payment models that are driven by value over services provided. As hospitals and health systems face more financial risk in readmission payment penalties, bundled payments, and other accountable care programs, it is more important than ever that they identify and partner with the best post-acute providers.
Quantifying the quality of care is imperative in this highly competitive healthcare market where patients and consumers have many agencies to choose from for their home care services., said Christine Lang, Senior Director of Product Management at ABILITY. “The 2016 HomeCare Elite winners have demonstrated success in providing the highest-quality care in their communities.” All the data analyzed and reviewed is obtained from publicly available performance measures.
