Crittenton Home Care Receives Two Nationally Recognized Honors

Crittenton Home Care has been named a 2014 HHCAHPS Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing home health agencies that continuously provide quality care as measured from the patient’s point of view.

The agency also announced yesterday in a statement that it has been named a Top Agency of the 2014 HomeCare Elite™, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.

Crittenton Home Care is committed to providing quality, compassionate and individualized home health care in the most cost effective manner to meet the health care needs of its patients, clients and their families.

Established by Deyta, this prestigious HHCAHPS annual honor recognizes home health agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view.

“HHCAHPS Honors recognizes agencies who work hard and are dedicated to delivering quality care, and it shows in their patient satisfaction scores. We are honored to be partnered with these top performers,” said Kevin Porter, President and CEO of Deyta.

The Top Agency Award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent newsletter in the home health profession, Home Health Line. Now in its ninth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. Out of 9,994 agencies considered, 2,501 are elite.

“The 2014 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing high quality care in their home health communities and we recognize them for their remarkable achievements,” said Mary Oakes, Senior Vice President of Post-Acute at National Research. “We congratulate Crittenton Home Care on being recognized as a top home care agency.”
