we are proud to be named a Hospice Honors recipient as we pursue our vision to Do The Right Thing by providing superior care and service
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 24, 2017
Intrepid Hospice has been named a 2017 Hospice Honors recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, outsourced billing and coding services, and advanced analytics. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.
“Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said J. Kevin Porter of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of Intrepid Hospice for achieving this highest of honors and I congratulate them on their success.”
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Performance scores were aggregated from all completed surveys and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a National Performance Score calculated from all partnering hospices contained in the Deyta Analytics’ Hospice CAHPS database. Hospice Honors recipients include those hospices scoring above the Deyta Analytics National Performance Score on 20 of the evaluated questions. Deyta Analytics holds a special recognition, Hospice Honors Elite, to honor hospices scoring above the Deyta Analytics National Performance Score on all 24 of the evaluated questions.
Intrepid USA CEO, Paul Foster, credits rapid admissions, high nurse-to-patient ratio, and service culture. He said, "we are proud to be named a Hospice Honors recipient as we pursue our vision to Do The Right Thing by providing superior care and service”.
