Springfield, Mo. – May 9, 2017 – HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, and advanced analytics, recently announced the recipients of the 2017 Hospice Honors, a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. The official list of recipients was unveiled last week at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Management and Leadership Conference in Washington, DC.
“This prestigious annual review recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view,” said J. Kevin Porter, President and CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am proud to call these hospices clients of HEALTHCAREfirst and Deyta Analytics, and anticipate seeing even more of our customers recognized in years to come.”
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Performance scores were aggregated from all completed surveys and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a National Performance Score calculated from all partnering hospices contained in the Deyta Analytics’ Hospice CAHPS database. Hospice Honors recipients include those hospices scoring above the Deyta Analytics National Performance Score on 20 of the evaluated questions. Deyta Analytics holds a special recognition, Hospice Honors Elite, to honor hospices scoring above the Deyta Analytics National Performance Score on all 24 of the evaluated questions.
