Wedco District Home Health Agency Named as Prestigious 2013 HHCAHPS HonorsTM Recipient
Wedco District Home Health Agency has been named a 2013 Home Health Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing those home health agencies that provide the best patient experience.
Established by Deyta, this prestigious annual honor recognizes the top 20 percent of agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view. HHCAHPS Honors acknowledges the highest performing agencies ranked by analyzing satisfaction measures covering both performance and improvement of care over a twelve-month period.
Deyta used the HHCAHPS survey results from over 1,200 eligible home health agencies contained in its HHCAHPS database with an evaluation period of April 2012 to March 2013. Two domains of performance were used in the calculations covering the nineteen questions that comprise the five publicly reported HHCAHPS measures found on Home Health Compare. Qualifications for eligibility included those HHAs that were compliant and partnered with Deyta for the evaluation period.
“We are excited to honor these outstanding home health agencies,” said J. Kevin Porter, President and CEO. “Their tireless work has made a real difference in the lives of their patients, and we look forward to acknowledging their excellence.”
Crystal Caudill Miller, Public Health Director, Wedco District Health Department and Home Health Agency, credits the strong leadership in this program as well as the work ethic, loyalty and dedication of the staff within the Wedco District. She said, “We focus on the development of human capacity on all levels because our staff is the nucleus of our organization. Focusing our efforts on leadership as well as recruiting and retaining highly skilled individuals with strong work ethic, loyalty and dedication to serve the patients in each of our communities is what made Wedco a staple in our communities.”
