Denton, TX, December 15, 2015 — Advanced RehabTrust Home Health today announced that it has once again been named a HomeCare Elite Top Agency, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. This is the 6th year in a row Advanced RehabTrust has received this recognition. Now in its tenth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 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. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,718 agencies considered, 2,431 are elite.
The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health and hospice metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent publication in the home care profession, Home Health Line.
“The 2015 HomeCare Elite winners deserve credit for demonstrating high-quality care in their communities. As quality care initiatives become top-of-mind for healthcare providers, we recognize this as a remarkable achievement and are pleased to make this our 10th year of acknowledgment for top-performing home health organizations,” said Christine Lang, VP of Product Development for OCS HomeCare. “We congratulate Advanced RehabTrust Home Health on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”
Ron Tester, PT, Owner and Administrator of Advanced RehabTrust Home Health, credits his staff and their unwavering commitment to their patients and community for the agency’s ability to achieve recognition as one of the HomeCare Elite. “It’s an honor and a privilege to serve our patients and meet the home health needs of North Texas, and being recognized as Home Care Elite for 6 years in a row validates who we are as a company and the quality of care we provide,” said Tester.
“Happy 10th anniversary to the winners of the HomeCare Elite. As CMS ramps up its nationwide initiatives to reward home care agencies for the quality of care they provide, this is yet another way to acknowledge those agencies that have demonstrated their commitment to improving patient care at lower costs. The winners of the HomeCare Elite Award are proving that a heightened focus on clinical outcomes, patient experience, and financial management leads to success,” said Marci Heydt, Senior Content Manager, DecisionHealth.
