CHILLICOTHE – Adena Home Health Care has been named a Top Agency by HomeCare Elite®, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. For 14 years, HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlighted the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. This marks the fourth time Adena Home Health Care has earned this distinction.
“Adena Home Health Care plays an important role in helping patients safely continue to meet their care needs – whether through a pandemic or every day,” said Deborah Hanson, director of Adena Home Health Care. “Keeping our patients safe in the comfort of their homes while still receiving the care they need is maybe more important now than ever. Patients and their families cannot delay in seeking care and we are glad we can be there for them when and where they need us. Recognitions such as this help instill trust with our patients and their families that Adena Home Health Care can best meet their needs at the highest levels of safety and quality.”
More than 8,800 agencies were considered in the ranking, with 2,207 being recognized on the HomeCare Elite winners list. 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.
The ranking is developed by ABILITY® Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. It is sponsored by DecisionHealth, part of the H3.Group.
