HCAF Members Receive HHCAHPS Honors from Deyta

November 11, 2014

HCAF is proud to recognize three of our members for being awarded HHCAHPS Honors by Deyta. Each year, Deyta recognizes agencies around the country who continuously provide quality care as measured from the patient’s point of view. These agencies achieve the highest levels of patient satisfaction. This leads to both patient and agency success.

Award recipients are identified by evaluating performance on a set of nineteen satisfaction indicator measures. Individual agency performance scores were aggregated for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national average score calculated from more than 1,800 partnering home health agencies contained in Deyta’s HHCAHPS database. HHCAHPS Honors recipients include those agencies scoring above the Deyta National Average on at least eighty-five percent, or seventeen, of the evaluated questions.

This year’s member honorees were:

Ortho Home Health Care – Jacksonville, FL

S.E.T. Home Health – Crystal River, FL

Suwannee Medical Personnel – Jacksonville, FL

In addition, S.E.T. Home Health was recognized as an Elite Honoree. Deyta holds a special recognition, HHCAHPS Honors Elite, to honor home health agencies scoring above the Deyta National Average on one hundred percent, or all nineteen, of the evaluated questions.

HCAF is very proud to have these agencies as our members and would like to congratulate them on being recognized for such high standards of patient satisfaction.

Successful agency leaders align their agency to continuously deliver care that will be perceived in a positive manner by patients, driving word of mouth recommendations. Increasing both the quantity and quality of patient referrals using high patient satisfaction scores is an effective strategy for growth. Using the results from the Home Health CAHPS® survey, particularly the overall recommendation measure, will identify opportunities for care improvement helping agency leaders focus resources more effectively.
