2013 Press Releases
“The 2012 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community. Their success offers data-driven proof of being well-managed and high quality care providers to hospitals, managed care organizations, ACOs, and other potential referral partners across the healthcare continuum,” said Susan L. Henricks, President and COO of National Research Corporation, the parent company of OCS HomeCare. “Again, this year, we updated our methodology to reflect the rapidly evolving quality-focused healthcare landscape and national value-based purchasing trends. We congratulate Centura Health at Home on being recognized as a top home care agency.”
Centura Health at Home in Denver and Colorado Springs were named to the top 25 percent while Centura Health at Home in Pueblo and Frisco through Bristlecone Health Services were among the top 500 agencies. Mercy Home Health in Durango and Pagosa Springs was named to the top 100 agencies nationwide. Erin Denholm, CEO of Centura Health at Home said, “We are extremely proud to have all of our home health care entities statewide be named to the 2012 HomeCare Elite. This achievement is a true testament to our dedicated associates who deliver compassionate, quality care to our patients every day throughout Colorado.”
“HomeCare Elite recognition continues to gain importance given the increased regulatory mandates and the threat of shrinking reimbursement revenue. Home health agencies that have earned recognition among the HomeCare Elite demonstrated that they not only can adapt to an evolving marketplace but continue to excel in clinical, patient experience, quality improvement, and financial outcomes,” said Marci Heydt, Product Manager for the post-acute care business group of DecisionHealth.
The HomeCare Elite is the only performance recognition of its kind in the home health profession. The 2012 HomeCare Elite is co-sponsored by National Research Corporation (also known as OCS HomeCare), the leading provider of cross-continuum healthcare metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, the publisher of the industry’s most respected independent newsletter Home Health Line. The data used for this analysis were compiled from publicly available information. The entire list of 2012 HomeCare Elite agencies can be downloaded by visiting the National Research Corporation website at www.nationalresearch.com.
