Ohio’s Hospice Of Miami County Named A 2020 Hospice Honors Recipient

Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County Named a 2020 Hospice Honors Recipient

Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County has been named a 2020 Hospice Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of billing and coding services, CAHPS surveys and advanced analytics. Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County earned the distinction by scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Performance Score on 20 of the evaluated questions in the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Survey.

This prestigious annual review recognizes agencies that continuously provide the highest level of quality care as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. It acknowledges the highest performing agencies by analyzing the performance of the CAHPS hospice survey satisfaction measures.

“We are excited to recognize the 2020 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 Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County on its success in achieving this highest of honors.” 

Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2018 through September 2019. 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. To learn more about the Hospice CAHPS survey program and the Hospice Honors awards, visit www.healthcarefirst.com.
