Wedco District Home Health Agency has been named a 2013 Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) honors recipient.
Established by Deyta, this annual honor recognizes the top 20 percent of agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view.
HHCAHPS honors acknowledges the highest performing agencies ranked by analyzing satisfaction measures covering both performance and improvement of care over a 12-month period.
Deyta used the HHCAHPS survey results from over 1,200 eligible home health agencies contained in its HHCAHPS database with an evaluation period of April 2012 to March 2013.
Two domains of performance were used in the calculations covering the 19 questions that comprise the five publicly reported HHCAHPS measures found on Home Health Compare.
“We are excited to honor these outstanding home health agencies,” said J. Kevin Porter, president and CEO. “Their tireless work has made a real difference in the lives of their patients, and we look forward to acknowledging their excellence.”
Crystal Caudill Miller, Public Health director, Wedco District Health Department and Home Health Agency, credits the strong leadership in this program as well as the work ethic, loyalty and dedication of the staff within the Wedco District.
