BDCH Hillside Home Care Earns HomeCare Elite Award for 10th Time in 12 Years

https://bdch.com/sites/bdch.com/assets/images/default/HCE2017_TopAgency.jpgFor the 10th time in the past 12 years, Beaver Dam Community Hospitals, Inc.’s Hillside Home Care has been named a Top Agency of the HomeCare Elite®, an annual recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States that identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies. In addition, Hillside Home Care has also earned Top 500 Agency honors three times.

“For more than 30 years, Hillside Home Care has provided skilled and compassionate care to the patients and families in our region who have entrusted us with their health and wellbeing,” said Kim Miller, FACHE, BDCH President and CEO. “The HomeCare Elite honor is a reflection of the great care our staff and caregivers provide during each and every interaction, every day. We are thankful for our staff, the compassion they display, and their approach that places the patient at the forefront of every decision.”

The ranking is developed by ABILITY® Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare, and sponsored by DecisionHealth, publisher of Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual.

“The team at BDCH Hillside Home Care has demonstrated an impressive ability to deliver great patient care,” said Christine Lang, senior director for ABILITY Network. “This is due to the skill and dedication of their clinical professionals, as well as the proficiency and efforts of their quality team tracking, measuring and interpreting the data that supports the delivery of care. Together, they have earned this recognition as one of the top home care agencies in the country.”

Lisa White, Director of BDCH Hillside Home Care, credits a caring, highly engaged workforce with the agency’s ability to achieve recognition as one of the HomeCare Elite. “Hillside Home Care’s tenured staff has an outstanding commitment to excellence, regularly going above and beyond to assure members in our service area receive the best possible care.”

HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience (HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,064 agencies considered, 2,268 are recognized on the 2017 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.

“Congratulations to those leading agencies that earned a spot on HomeCare Elite,” said Marci Heydt, senior content manager for DecisionHealth. “BDCH Hillside Home Care and its peers have worked hard to improve quality outcomes while maintaining solid profit margins, which is increasingly difficult as home health agencies faced increased regulatory burdens each year.”
