HM Home Care, a division of Humility of Mary Health Partners’ HM Home Health Services, has been named to the 2011 HomeCare Elite™ for the sixth consecutive year.
HomeCare Elite™ is an annual compilation of the most successful home care providers in the United States. It identifies home health agencies that rank among the top 25% nationwide based on quality of care/patient outcomes, process measure implementation and financial performance.
HM Home Care ranks among the top 500 agencies and is one of only 338 home health agencies to appear on the HomeCare Elite list every year since it was established in 2006. In 2011, some 9,700 home health agencies certified by Medicare had sufficient information to be considered for the HomeCare Elite list. Data used for analysis are compiled from publicly available information.
Among the things that distinguish HM Home Care from other home health agencies and identify it as a leading care provider is how infrequently its patients need to be admitted to the hospital, reports Claudia L. Axelson, HM Home Health Services assistant director.
Axelson credits HM Home Care’s dedicated staff and team-based, patient-centered care for keeping patients healthy enough to remain at home. Those low hospital admission rates and HM Home Care’s continuous improvement across all three benchmarks account for the organization’s consistent inclusion on the HomeCare Elite list, she says.
OCS HomeCare, a leading provider of homecare information, and DecisionHealth, publisher of Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual, sponsor the HomeCare Elite compilation.
