The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced an additional
new set of star ratings, based on patient experience, for home health
agencies on January 28, 2016. In 2015, our team at LifeCare Home Health
& In-Home Services was among just 2.6% of agencies in the country
to receive a 5 / 5 Medicare rating from CMS. This is a huge accomplishment
as we strive to raise the standards of home healthcare and lead the field
in developing new and effective programs for quality patient service.
The five new star ratings cover important areas of home health care as
perceived by the patient and include:
- Care of Patients
- Communication Between Providers and Patients
- Specific Care Issues
- Overall Rating of Care Provided by the Home Health Agency
- Survey Summary star rating
Our comprehensive approach to home healthcare enables us to exceed expectations
in these five categories. As patients and care providers use this data
to make the right choice for care, we hope to gain further influence in
our field and continue to effectively provide solutions for the healthcare industry.
