A total of 179 LHC Group home health locations have been ranked among the nation’s best in an independent rating of home health quality and performance. The locations were named to the 2016 HomeCare Elite list, compiled annually by National Research Corporation and DecisionHealth to recognize the top-performing and most successful home care providers in the United States. The market-leading review names the top home health care locations in the country based on a collection of performance measures.
Now in its eleventh year, HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified locations and highlights the Top 100 and Top 500 agencies overall. The program is free to the home health profession and completely complimentary recognition for agencies, which is not linked to any proprietary vendor database to be considered.
Recipients are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS® or HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, location must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,406 agencies considered, 2,353 are elite.
