The Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices providing the best patient and caregiver experience. This prestigious annual review recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.
Hospice Honors acknowledges high performing agencies by analyzing performance of Hospice CAHPS quality measures. The awards are an exclusive recognition for hospices that have selected HEALTHCAREfirst as their hospice survey partner.
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016. HEALTHCAREfirst identified award recipients by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures.
Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated from all surveys with a final survey status of complete for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national performance score calculated from all partnering hospices contained in HEALTHCAREfirst‘s Hospice CAHPS database.
*HEALTHCAREfirst, recognizes that only CMS published results are official and does not intend to assert the superiority of one hospice over another, but rather to recognize top performing hospices for their hard work and dedication.
