Home Care Solutions has been ranked among the nation’s Top 25 percent of home health providers in an independent rating of home health quality and performance. This is the third consecutive year the agency has achieved "HomeCare Elite" status.
The Ooltewah home health agency was named to the 2013 HomeCare Elite list, compiled annually by National Research Corporation and DecisionHealth to recognize the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.
Home Care Solutions is one of 64 LHC Group home health providers incorporating 115 agency locations that achieved HomeCare Elite status for 2013. LHC Group is a national provider of post-acute care services.
“Every day, in 26 states across the nation, LHC Group’s team of healthcare professionals deliver high-quality, compassionate and efficient care to tens of thousands of patients and families who depend on us,” said Keith G. Myers, LHC Group’s chairman and chief executive officer. “HomeCare Elite status is a meaningful mark of excellence within our industry – and most importantly, it demonstrates we are successfully fulfilling our mission of helping the people under our care.”
Now in its eighth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,969 agencies considered, 2,496 are elite.
The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent newsletter in the home health profession, Home Health Line.
