Mokena, Ill. – Three Presence Home Care agencies have been named to the 2014 HomeCare Elite™. The honored agencies are Elgin, Joliet and Kankakee. Our agencies have been included in the HomeCare Elite™ list each year since 2006, with the Elgin agency making the list every year.
“Presence Home Care is honored to be recognized once again as a HomeCare Elite™ awardee,” said Susan Enright, Chief Operating Officer, Home Care and Housing Operations, Presence Life Connections. “Providing high-quality care to those in need of recovering in their homes, where they are comfortable, is our Mission and our privilege.”
HomeCare Elite™ is an annual ranking of the top 25 percent home care providers in the United States. Prepared by National Research Corporation (also known as OCS Homecare), and Decision Health.
Agency performances are compared against the performance of other organizations in their state and nationwide (including U.S. territories). The top 25 percent of agencies in each region are identified. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices (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 9,969 agencies considered, 2,496 are elite.
