The CMS star rating system helps home health agencies to pursue excellence in patient care, especially nursing care, and continuously works to improve the delivery of healthcare services to the communities we serve.
Orange County, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2015
24/7 Care At Home, a high-quality provider of comprehensive home health care throughout Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino, recently announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) have awarded its agency the highest star rating available through a new rating system of home health care providers. 24/7 Care At Home’s agency is one of three top Orange County agencies to earn the 5-Star distinction. Nationally, only 239 of over 12,000 agencies have received this top rating.
The new star ratings indicate the quality of care offered to patients in their homes and are based on CMS’s “Home Health Compare” measures. The ratings were published last week by CMS as a way to offer more transparency to the home health industry and provide an added tool for consumers and physicians to compare and select among the best home health agencies.
“A five-star rating reflects the high level of devotion our nursing and clinical staffs consistently provide to the patients in our care,” said Dr. Michael Demoratz, Ph.D., Palliative Care Administrator of 24/7 Care At Home. “We appreciate the recognition from the new CMS star rating system and are pleased to be among the best agencies in the home health industry.”
24/7 Care At Home and its family of companies offer comprehensive and continuous health care services, including home health care, supportive care, hospice care, chronic care management, podiatric care, and physician visits. In each area of care, 24/7 Care At Home strives to achieve the “Triple Aim” of health care: high quality, low cost, and high patient satisfaction. We deliver care to all communities, including communities with patients speaking primarily Spanish, Chinese, Korean, or Vietnamese.
“The CMS star rating system helps home health agencies to pursue excellence in patient care, especially nursing care, and continuously works to improve the delivery of healthcare services to the communities we serve. I am proud of the commitment our team has demonstrated in providing a high standard of care and working on community outreach programs to educate and improve the lives of our patients and their families,” commented Michelle Nguyen, RN, BSN, Director of Patient Care Services at 24/7 Care At Home.
CMS star ratings will be updated quarterly as more recent data becomes available. To view the complete Home Health Compare data sets, visit https://www.medicare.gov/homehealthcompare/.
