BOCA RATON, FL – June 29, 2018 – Boca Raton Regional Hospital has been recognized as a 2017 HomeCare Elite® organization. The HomeCare Elite® designation recognizes the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified home health care agencies in the nation. Over 9,000 home care agencies are considered.
The designation is made by examining five categories: quality of care, best practice implementation, quality improvement and consistency, patient experience and financial health. To be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcome measures in Home Health Compare – a program created by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to provide the public with information about the quality of care provided by Medicare-certified home health agencies.
“Our commitment to patient care goes well beyond professional expertise. We treat each of our patients like they are members of our own families and this accolade reflects that approach,” said Jenny Watts, Director of Home Health at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “We strive to ensure every member of our staff encompasses the compassion and sensitivity necessary in serving as one of the top home health care agencies in the country.”
The HomeCare Elite® program was developed by ABILITY Network and sponsored by DecisionHealth to examine quality of care, quality improvement, patient experience and process implementation. “The 2017 HomeCare Elite® agencies have demonstrated – in a quantifiable way – success in providing the best possible home health care in their communities,” said Bud Meadows, Chief Revenue Officer for ABILITY. “Recognizing these outstanding home health providers is an honor. They represent the absolute best in this profession, delivering the highest quality of care.”
Boca Raton Regional Hospital Home Health services are accredited by the Joint Commission and licensed by the state of Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. All visits are conducted by licensed registered nurses and supported by resources of Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
“We are very proud of our home health services and this accolade is another reflection of the high quality of service we provide,” added Mindy Shikiar, Chief Operating Officer of Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
