“Elite Status” awarded to HOAC in Hospice Honors program
JACKSON, CA - Hospice of Amador & Calaveras (HOAC) has been recognized as a 2017 recipient of Hospice Honors, a prestigious national program that highlights hospice organizations who are providing the highest level of quality care, as determined by caregivers. The official list of recipients was unveiled last week at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Management and Leadership Conference in Washington, DC.
Hospice of Amador & Calaveras was recognized in the top tier of the Hospice Honors program—“Elite Status”—scoring above the Deyta National Average on 100% of the evaluated questions and the only hospice in the Sierra region to be awarded Elite Status.
Established by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices who provide the best patient and caregiver experience, bringing special attention to those that continuously provide maximal levels of quality care as measured from the perspective of the caregiver.
“This prestigious annual review recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view,” said J. Kevin Porter, president and CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am proud to call these hospices clients of HEALTHCAREfirst and Deyta Analytics, and anticipate seeing even more of our customers recognized in years to come.”
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 HEALTHCAREas their hospice survey partner. Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016.
HEALTHCARE identified award recipients by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures.
