HomeHealth Visiting Nurses maintains a comprehensive program for outcome-based quality improvement. Our efforts include participation in the National Outcome Based Quality Improvement Program, collaboration with the Northeast Health Care Quality Foundation and utilization of a comprehensive benchmarking service though Patient Care Technologies. In addition to these efforts, we contract with a national consulting firm to survey our patient satisfaction.
2010 Update: Please note that home health industry is transitioning to a new and federally mandated patient assessment process that incorporates new quality measures. As a result, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid have announced a "blackout" period for publicly reported data with some measures reported in the Fall of 2010 with full reports in Spring of 2011.
