Brazosport Regional Home Health Named to the Top 500 of the 2014 HomeCare Elite
Brazosport Regional Home Health announced that it has been named to the Top 500 of the 2014 HomeCare Elite™, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.
Now in its ninth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of 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 9,994 agencies considered, 2,501 are elite.
Celebrating its 20th year serving Southern Brazoria County, the Brazosport Regional Home Health provides nursing services, home health aide services, medical social work, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. The Team has over 270 years of combined home health experience.
The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading products for home health metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent newsletter in the home care profession, Home Health Line.
“The 2014 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing high quality care in their home health communities and we recognize them for their remarkable achievements,” said Mary Oakes, Senior Vice President of Post-Acute at National Research. “We congratulate Brazosport Regional Home Health being one of the top 500 home care agencies in the country.”
“This award is directly related to the quality of care demonstrated by our Home Health Team,” said Al Guevara, CEO/President of Brazosport Regional Health System. “We are the only Home Health agency in this region who received this award and it is consistent with our mission of providing Healthcare with Excellence and Compassion.”
“HomeCare Elite recognition is a significant acknowledgement. In today’s healthcare ecosystem, it is imperative that our seniors have access to quality home healthcare in order to ensure better patient outcomes and improve overall cost, and therefore, home healthcare continues to remain an integral part of the care continuum. The winners of the HomeCare Elite Award are proving that a heightened focus on clinical outcomes, patient experience, and financial management lead to success,” said Marci Heydt, Product Manager for the post-acute care business group of DecisionHealth.
