St. Anthony Home Health has been named a 2018 Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, CAHPS surveys, and advanced analytics. This prestigious annual review recognizes agencies that continuously provide a positive patient experience and high quality care as measured from the patient’s point of view. It acknowledges the highest performing agencies by analyzing the performance of the HHCAHPS survey satisfaction measures.
HHCAHPS Honors acknowledges the highest performing agencies by analyzing performance on the “Willingness to Recommend” question as a qualifier and then analyzing performance on 18 other questions that comprise the publicly reported measures from April 2017 through March 2018. HHCAHPS Honors recipients include agencies scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Average on at least 85 percent of the evaluated questions. HEALTHCAREfirst holds a special recognition, HHCAHPS Honors Elite, to recognize home health agencies scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Average on 100 percent of the evaluated questions.
“HHCAHPS Honors recipients are leading the way in providing and demonstrating quality patient care,” said J. Kevin Porter, CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “We are extremely proud to be aligned with such hard working agencies like St. Anthony Home Health and we congratulate them on their success.”
Marcia Schaefer, director of St. Anthony Home Health, gives credit to the caring, knowledgeable staff who work with home health patients for achieving the HHCAHPS recognition.
“We are committed to caring for our community in the best way possible,” Schaefer said. “We have a continual focus on improvement and want our patients to feel they have received the best possible care.”
