American Nursing Care: Wins National HomeCare Award
American Nursing Care-Indianapolis was named a Top Agency of the 2012 HomeCare Elite™, a compilation of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. Now in its seventh year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, process measure implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS), quality improvement and financial performance.
Linda Huffer, vice president of operations and COO of American Nursing Care & CHI National Home Care, credits the use of specialized chronic care management programs while providing personalized patient care with the company’s ability to rank as one of the HomeCare Elite.
“The 2012 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community. Their success offers data-driven proof of being well managed and providing high quality care to hospitals, managed care organizations, ACOs, and other potential referral partners across the healthcare continuum,” says Susan L. Henricks, president and COO of National Research Corporation, the parent company of OCS HomeCare. “Again this year, we updated our methodology to reflect the rapidly evolving quality-focused healthcare landscape and national value-based purchasing trends. We congratulate American Nursing Care-Indianapolis on being recognized as a top home care agency.”
