2019 HomeCare Elite Award Winner

For 14 years, the HomeCare Elite® recognition program has listed the top 25 percent of home health agencies in the country. Congratulations! We are proud to name your organization among the 2019 HomeCare Elite!

Brought to you by ABILITYNetwork® and DecisionHealth, HomeCare Elite honors the top-performing agencies as measured by five categories: quality of care (outcomes), best practice implementation (process measures), quality improvement and consistency, patient experience (HHCAHPS) and financial health. The 2019 HomeCare Elite was compiled using publicly-available data from Home Health Compare and Cost Reports from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The HomeCare Elite also recognizes the Top 100 and Top 500 providers nationwide. Out of 8,818 agencies considered, 2,207 are HomeCare Elite.

ABILITY Network, an Inovalon company, is a leading healthcare information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare through innovative applications and data analytics. Inovalon provides cloud-based platforms empowering a data-driven transformation from volume-based to value-based models. DecisionHealth, an H3.Group brand, is the industry’s leading source for news, instructional guidance and training, with brand names such as Home Health Line, the Home Health Coding Center and The Complete Home Health ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual.

HomeCare Elite began in 2005. Over the course of this program, only 57 agencies achieved HomeCare Elite recognition every year. And, out of this year’s class of 2,207 home health agencies, only 1,423 repeated recognition from 2018 to 2019.

HomeCare Elite status is not an easy accomplishment. Your agency and staff have earned this and deserve acknowledgement. Your agency’s achievement already is being recognized within the home health community. The 2019 HomeCare Elite was announced on Oct. 14, 2019.
