BAYADA Home Health Care has been included in the 2017 HomeCare Elite®, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. The ranking is developed by ABILITY® Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare; and sponsored by DecisionHealth, publisher of Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual.
“The team at BAYADA has demonstrated an impressive ability to deliver great patient care,” said Christine Lang, senior director for ABILITY Network. “This is due to the skill and dedication of their clinical professionals, as well as the proficiency and efforts of their quality team tracking, measuring and interpreting the data that supports the delivery of care. Together, they have earned this recognition as one of the top home care agencies in the country.”
“Making the HomeCare Elite list again this year is testament to always putting our clients first, and providing high quality care so they can remain at home with comfort, independence, and dignity,” said Mike Johnson, BAYADA's Home Health Practice Leader. “I’m very proud of our entire home health team for their commitment to quality and for their dedication to our core values of compassion, excellence, and reliability.”
“Congratulations to those leading agencies that earned a spot on the list of the top 500 HomeCare Elite,” said Marci Heydt, senior content manager for DecisionHealth. "BAYADA and its peers have worked hard to improve quality outcomes while maintaining solid profit margins, which is increasingly difficult as home health agencies faced increased regulatory burdens each year.”
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. Out of 9,064 agencies considered, 2,268 are recognized on the 2017 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.
