Winners are ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, process of care measures, and financial performance.
"It is increasingly challenging to manage the cost/quality equation. The 2011 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patients with the best possible care while managing their business efficiently and effectively," said Amanda Twiss, CEO of OCS and My InnerView. "This year, we updated our methodology to reflect industry focus and, based on this rigorous analysis, we congratulate VNA Home Health Hospice on being one fo the top home care agencies in the country."
