2015 Hospice Honors the Best Hospices

Compassion Hospice is elated to announce that we’ve been chosen among the best hospices in the nation for our care!

Deyta, a division of HealthcareFirst and an industry leader in data-driven management, is excited to announce the 2015 Hospice Honors recipients of the third annual Hospice Honors, a prestigious program established by Deyta that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of satisfaction as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. The official list of recipients was unveiled this week at the Welcome Reception of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Management and Leadership Conference in National Harbor, MD.

“This is the third year that we are presenting this award to top performers, and it’s very rewarding to recognize their hard work and commitment to improving care,” said Kevin Porter, Senior Vice President of Deyta Analytics.

2015 Hospice Honors Recipients Announced
The Best Hospices

From the moment someone calls our office for help, through the moments we spend with families helping them through this difficult time we strive to make compassion more than a marketing slogan. We work with an awesome team of aides, office staff, nurses, counselors, social workers, chaplains, and homemakers!

What does “Hospice Honors” mean?

Recognized by HealthcareFirst/Deyta, it’s a nation-wide sampling of the experiences you, the family members of our patients, experience. When a family member fills out the satisfaction survey, this goes directly back to HealthcareFirst/Deyta who then forward to Medicare our results:

This notable recognition is determined by using the Deyta Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (Deyta FEHC) survey results from approximately 1,700 partnering hospices contained in Deyta’s FEHC database with an evaluation period of October 2013 through September 2014. Deyta identified Hospice Honors recipients by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of eighteen satisfaction indicator measures. The set of questions included only indicator measures, omitting qualifying, leader and demographic questions. Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national average score calculated from Deyta’s FEHC database.

We’re blessed beyond measure 🙂
