Corsicana — A Trinity Valley Home Health

A Trinity Valley Home Health and Therapy Services has announced it has been named to the top 500 of the 2012 HomeCare Elite, a compilation of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. Now in its seventh year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of agencies and further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winner are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, process measure implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS), quality improvement and financial performance.

“The 2012 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patient-centered care and serving as leaders in the home health community. Their success offers data-driven proof of being well-managed and high quality care providers to hospitals, managed care organizations, ACOs, and other potential referral partners across the healthcare continuum,” said Susan L. Henricks, president and COO of National Research Corporation, the parent company of OCS HomeCare. “Again this year, we updated our methodology to reflect the rapidly evolving quality-focused healthcare landscape and national value-based purchasing trends. We congratulate A Trinity Valley Home Health and Therapy Services on being one of the top 500 home care agencies in the country.

A Trinity Valley Home Health and Therapy owner Bill Miller, Physical Therapist, credits “a dedicated staff, hard work, loyalty and a strong sense of business ethics” with the agency’s ability to achieve recognition as one of the HomeCare Elite.

“It’s not every day a great mix of patients, physicians, and healthcare professionals get to come together to achieve great things,” Miller said. “Our patients reap the benefits of the output of our hard work together. We are honored to have been the only agency chosen for the fifth year in a row in our regional to be included in the HomeCare Elite list.”

“HomeCare Elite recognition continues to gain importance given the increased regulatory mandates and the threat of shrinking reimbursement revenue. Home Health agencies that have earned recognition among the HomeCare Elite demonstrated that they not only can adapt to an evolving marketplace, but continue to excel in clinical, patient experience, quality improvement, and financial outcomes,” said Marci Heydt, product manager for the post-acute care business group of DecisionHealth.
