Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital’s agency “Kaiser Home Health Services”, today announced that it has been named a top agency of the 2013HomeCare Elite™, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. Now in its eighth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,969 agencies considered, only 2,496 are elite. “The 2013HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community. Their success is a tribute that managing healthcare data and utilizing it for improvement initiatives lead to high quality care, and we recognize them for their outstanding achievements,” said Mary Oakes, senior vice president of post-acute at National Research. “We congratulate Kaiser Home Health Services on being recognized as a top home care agency.”

Kaiser Home Health’s Director Stacey Schultz, R.N., credits her team of experienced and compassionate clinicians with the agency’s ability to achieve recognition as one of the HomeCare Elite. "We love being able to serve our community, taking care of our clients as if they were our own family," said Stacey. This is the 7th consecutive year that Kaiser Home Health has been selected for this honor. KHH serves patients in Karnes, Wilson, Atascosa, Bee, Live Oak, Goliad and Dewitt Counties.
