By: Harrison's Hope
"We are excited to recognize the 2019 Hospice Honors recipients for their hard work and dedication to providing exceptional care," said Misty Skinner, Executive Vice President of Services at HEALTHCAREfirst. "I congratulate
Harrison's Hope on its success in achieving this highest of honors."
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2017 through September 2018. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Performance scores were aggregated from all completed surveys and were compared on a question- by-question basis to a National Performance Score calculated from all hospices contained in the HEALTHCAREfirst's Hospice CAHPS database. Hospice Honors recipients include those hospices scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Performance Score on 20 of the evaluated questions. HEALTHCAREfirst holds a special recognition, Hospice Honors Elite, to honor hospices scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Performance Score on all 24 of the evaluated questions.
