NHRMC Home Care has been named a Top Agency of the 2019 HomeCare Elite, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. HomeCare Elite annually identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies.
“Our care teams are constantly focused on doing everything they can to help their patients, so we are always pleased to see them recognized for their efforts,” said Catherine Blankenship, Director of NHRMC Home Care.
The NHRMC Home Care team includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, home health aides and social workers. Treatment specialties include wound care, IV infusion, pediatric monitoring and care, physical and occupational therapy and speech therapy.
HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience (HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare. Out of 8,818 agencies considered, 2,207 are recognized on the 2019 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.
The ranking is developed by ABILITY Network, an information technology company, and is sponsored by DecisionHealth, part of the H3.Group.
