Deyta Announces 2015 Hospice Honors Recipients

Deyta released the 2015 Hospice Honors recipients list and celebrated with winners at NHPCO’s Management and Leadership Conference Welcome Reception.

(Louisville, KY) May 1, 2015 – Deyta, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst and an industry leader in data-driven management, is excited to announce the 2015 Hospice Honors recipients of the third annual Hospice Honors, a prestigious program established by Deyta that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of satisfaction as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. The official list of recipients was unveiled this week at the Welcome Reception of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Management and Leadership Conference in National Harbor, MD.

“This is the third year that we are presenting this award to top performers, and it’s very rewarding to recognize their hard work and commitment to improving care,” said Kevin Porter, Senior Vice President of Deyta Analytics.

This notable recognition is determined by using the Deyta Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (Deyta FEHC) survey results from approximately 1,700 partnering hospices contained in Deyta’s FEHC database with an evaluation period of October 2013 through September 2014. Deyta identified Hospice Honors recipients by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of eighteen satisfaction indicator measures. The set of questions included only indicator measures, omitting qualifying, leader and demographic questions. Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national average score calculated from Deyta’s FEHC database.

Deyta’s Hospice Honors methodology and a full list of 2015 Hospice Honors recipients can be found here.

With the industry-wide implementation of Hospice CAHPS currently underway, Deyta plans to transition Hospice Honors to be based upon performance on Hospice CAHPS measure indicators in 2016.
