“Improving quality of care and the patient experience continue to underpin a rapidly evolving healthcare environment,” said Christine Lang, Senior Director, Product Management, for ABILITY Network. “At the same time tracking, measuring and interpreting data that support these efforts is becoming more complex. The 2016 HomeCare Elite winners have demonstrated the highest-quality care in their communities, which is a remarkable achievement. We congratulate Silver Cross Home Health Care on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”

Donna Yack, Director of the Continuum of Services and Home Health Care at Silver Cross Hospital, credits strong dedication to teamwork and high quality standards with the company’s ability to rank as one of the HomeCare Elite. She said, “Silver Cross is so pleased to be recognized for the tenth year in a row for our quality successes which are a direct result from our dedicated team of Home Health professionals. By continuing to enhance the quality of care we provide to our patients, we can ensure to deliver the best healthcare experience to our patients in the comfort of their own homes.”

“We are proud to recognize the HomeCare Elite agencies for demonstrating a commitment to improving quality patient care at low costs. The clinical best practices and data tracking skills these agencies have implemented can position them for future success in government programs such as value-based purchasing and star ratings,” said Marci Heydt, Senior Content Manager, DecisionHealth.

Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,406 agencies considered, 2,353 are recognized on the 2016 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.
