Residential Home Health a HomeCare Elite Top AgencyResidential Home Health is excited to announce that our Illinois agency has been designated as a HomeCare Elite Top Agency.

This is the fifth time that a Residential agency has earned this  coveted distinction. Now in its eighth year, HomeCare Elite recognizes the best performing Medicare-certified home health agencies (top 25%) in the United States.

The following five factors are taken into account: quality of care (outcomes), best practice implementation (process measure), quality consistency and improvement, patient experience, and financial performance.

Mike Lewis, CEO of Residential Home Health, stated: “We are honored to be recognized as HomeCare Elite for a fifth time. Residential Home Health is totally committed to providing excellent care and support for our patients, resulting in superior outcomes and patient satisfaction. This award validates our All In approach and motivates us to work even harder each day to fulfill our sacred work of bringing better care to the home.”

The HomeCare Elite award is sponsored by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health metrics and analytics, and by Decision Health, publisher of Home Health Line, the most respected independent newsletter in the home health industry. 2013 HomeCare Elite status was awarded to only 2,496 of the 9,969 home health agencies that had publicly available qualifying data from CMS Home Health Compare and CMS cost reports.

“The 2013 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community. Their success is a tribute that managing healthcare data and utilizing it for improvement initiatives lead to high quality care, and we recognize them for their outstanding achievements,” said Mary Oakes, Senior Vice-President of National Research. “We congratulate Residential Home Health on being recognized as a Top Home Care Agency.”
