Schneck Medical Center Home Services has been named a 2012 HHCAHPS (Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing home health agencies (HHAs) that provide the best patient experience.
Established by Deyta, this annual honor acknowledges the top 20 percent of agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view. The HHCAHPS Honors identifies the highest performing agencies ranked by analyzing satisfaction measures covering both performance and improvement of care over a twelve-month period.
“The HHCAHPS Honors defines a new standard of excellence in the patient experience for home health agencies,” said Bill Bassett, Deyta’s Vice President of Home Health. “Identifying the top-performers in the home health industry is our way of recognizing HHAs that are dedicated to providing high quality of care in a patient-centric approach. The resulting patient experience is a key driver of ongoing patient and agency success.”
The HHCAHPS Honors rankings were compiled from the HHCAHPS survey results of over 1,800 home health agencies from April 2011 to March 2012. Two domains of performance were used in the calculations covering the nineteen questions that comprise the five publically reported measures on Home Health Compare.
“I’m extremely proud of my colleagues, our nurses and our staff because their expertise and teamwork in caring for our patients have earned this distinction.” said Denise Swegles, RN, BSN, MBA, FACHE, Director of Schneck’s Home Services. “We continually strive to provide quality compassionate care to all our clients. It is most gratifying when the quality of care we provide improves the health and lives of the community we serve.”
