BCH Home Health named top-performing agency

November 8, 2018

BCH Home Health has been named a HomeCare Elite Agency for the sixth time. HomeCare Elite is a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.

For 13 years, HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of home care agencies. Out of 8,898 agencies considered, only 2,223 are recognized on the 2018 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.

“The nurses and staff come to work every day wanting to do their best for our patients,” said Shelley Whitwer, BCH Home Care director. “I am very proud of our team for earning this award again for 2018.”

HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience (HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare.

The ranking is developed by ABILITY Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. It is sponsored by DecisionHealth, publisher of Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual.
