We had occasion to percentile rank our entire home health database, which naturally resulted in someone occupying the top position. It’s difficult enough to get into SHP’s top 20 percent rank, so imagine what it takes to be No. 1. Home health agencies in the SHP database are comprised of organizations that have made an investment in quality and avail themselves of tools that improve performance, therefore raising the bar for percentile ranking.
Looking at hospitalization rates, Home Health Compare and HHCAHPS scores for the period of October 1, 2011, through September 30, 2012, sitting at the top of a very long list is Somerset Hospital Home Health in Pennsylvania. Here’s a little background information on Somerset, followed by their Real-time Home Health Compare report, which you’ll notice is a sea of green. Congratulations, Somerset!
