Community Care Hospice has earned national recognition as a recipient of Elite designation in the Hospice Honors program recognizing hospices providing the best patient and caregiver experience.
Established by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, the Hospice Honors annual review recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. Hospice Honors acknowledges high performing agencies by analyzing performance of Hospice CAHPS quality measures. The awards are an exclusive recognition for hospices that have selected Deyta as their hospice survey partner. *Deyta recognizes that only CMS published results are official and does not intend to assert the superiority of one hospice over another, but rather to recognize top performing hospices for their hard work and dedication.
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016. In order to receive the award, hospices must be currently partnering with Deyta Analytics and must have had at least one complete* survey returned in each quarter of the evaluation period. Deyta Analytics identified award recipients by evaluating performance on a set of twenty-four quality indicator measures.
Hospice Honors recipients include those hospices scoring above the Deyta National Performance Score on twenty of the evaluated questions. Deyta holds a special recognition, Hospice Honors Elite, to honor hospices scoring above the Deyta National Performance Score on one hundred percent, or all twenty-four, of the evaluated questions. Community Care Hospice earned this highest standard.
“This recognition reflects the dedication our staff brings to our hospice mission,” says Patti Settlemyre, Executive Director of Community Care Hospice. “I am proud and honored that we consistently deliver such superior care and superior services to those in our care.”
