VNA Care Network and VNA of Boston Named to HomeCare Elite 2017 Top Agencies


VNA Care Network and VNA of Boston have been named top agencies of the 2017 HomeCare Elite®, a recognition of the top-performing 25 percent of Medicare-certified home health agencies in the United States.

VNA Care Network and VNA of Boston are both part of VNA Care, the Commonwealth’s largest home health and hospice provider, serving more than 50,000 patients each year.

The ranking is developed by ABILITY® Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare; and sponsored by DecisionHealth, publisher of Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual.

“Congratulations to those leading agencies that earned a spot on the list of the top 500 HomeCare Elite,” said Marci Heydt, senior content manager for DecisionHealth. “VNA Care Network and VNA of Boston have worked hard to improve quality outcomes while maintaining solid profit margins, which is increasingly difficult as home health agencies faced increased regulatory burdens each year.”

HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience (HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,064 agencies considered, 2,268 are recognized on the 2017 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.
