This is the inaugural year for the annual SHPBest recognition program, which was created to acknowledge home health and hospice providers that consistently provide high quality service. With well over 5,000 combined HHCAHPS and CAHPS Hospice locations on service, SHP is in a unique position to identify and recognize organizations that have made patient and caregiver satisfaction a priority and have been rewarded for their efforts with high marks on their satisfaction surveys.

The 2016 SHPBest award recipients were determined by reviewing and ranking the overall satisfaction score for more than 2,200 home health providers and over 850 hospice providers. The providers with the best overall scores for both HHCAHPS and CAHPS Hospice receives the Best-of-the-Best Award.

With the growth of public reporting and other transparency initiatives, excellence in healthcare is at the forefront of the post-acute care industry. As such, it is more important than ever that home health and hospice providers focus their efforts on performance improvement. The dedication, compassion, and commitment to quality of these top-performing SHP clients is reflected in the feedback provided by their patients.

We are proud to have hard-working, quality-conscious organizations as part of the SHP family and extend our most sincere congratulations to the 2016 top-performing clients.
