We are proud to be a national leader in Joint Commission accreditation. Whereas just 15 percent of home health agencies nationwide have achieved Joint Commission accreditation, 100 percent of our home health and hospice locations have earned accreditation or are completing the accreditation process.
A total of 124 LHC Group home health locations have been ranked among the 2014 HomeCare Elite, an independent rating of home health quality and performance. The 2014 HomeCare Elite listing, compiled annually by OCS HomeCare and DecisionHealth, names the top 25 percent of home health agencies in the United States.
We also helped one of our joint venture partners, New Orleans-based Ochsner Health System, secure a $3.8 million Health Care Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The award is funding efforts to improve the care of stroke patients in the acute and post-acute settings. The program is expected to reduce readmissions and save an estimated $5 million over the next three years.
At LHC Group, we challenge our clinical team to learn and lead through a comprehensive series of innovative online credentialing tools.
